question

When using this lens on a new RED Epic Weapon, what would be the equivalent size from the 18 ml & up to the 80 ml?
Asked by: tim
The CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 lens is meant for Super35/APS-C sensors. This lens will cover the RED Weapon 8K S35 (Super35) sensor but not on the forthcoming 8K VV (Vista Vision) sensor. In Super35 mode, the crop factor as compared to Full Frame is about 1.6. Thus this lens would compare to about 29mm to 128mm in Full Frame. If I may, I would like to point out that calculating crop factor is a process that did not exist before digital cameras and therefore suggest dropping the process since it is confusing for novices and unnecessary for seasoned shooters. I recommend to just learn what a normal lens is for the format you are using and then drop calculating lens size for a format you are not shooting in.

question

Is the servo control removable rom the lens for fully manual operation?
Asked by: Spencer
We are not seeing any mention that the servo motor can be removed/replaced by the user. We would think that this has to do with properly aligning it with the lens. However for those of you wishing full manual operation, there is a switch on the bottom left allowing you just that.

question

Am I right in assuming that I could pair this with the metabones EF-MFT smart adapter for use on the GH4 and new GH5?
Asked by: Anonymous
You should be able to use this lens with either the GH4 or soon to be released GH5 when using the standard Metabones EF to MFT Smart Adapter, B&H #MEEFM43BT2. However this combination has not yet been tested by Metabones as the CN-E 18-80mm was only just released.

question

If used in conjunction with a metabones smart adapter could this be used on a Black Magic Studio adapter with the electronic features intact?
Asked by: William
The Metabones Canon EF Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera T Speed Booster (Micro 4/3 Mount) has electronic pass through so the lens, adapter and camera have a good chance of working as described. Hopefully someone will test this idea soon so that we will know.

What is the focus throw on this lens?

What is the focus throw on this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
Being a focus by wire lens, there are no hard stops and the throw looks to be typically short for such a lens; about 45°.

question

Any indication yet of whether the FS7 grip handle / zoom controller will be able to control this servo? Maybe that's getting into hack territory, I don't know.
Asked by: Ben H.
Fingers crossed Metabones or someone figures out an adapter to convert the protocols. Currently the lens only sends iris info, powers the stabilisation and powers the servo zoom on an FS7. The option of an auto iris and focus would be good for usability.
