Canon 18-80mm overview

  • 1Description

The Canon CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 COMPACT-SERVO Lens combines the functionality of Canon's EF lenses with the features and performance of their CN-E lineup. Designed for use with EF-mount cameras featuring Super 35 or APS-C sized sensors, the lens covers an incredibly useful 18 to 80mm focal range while maintaining a constant T-stop of T4.4 (f/4) throughout. Measuring 7.2" long and weighing only 2.65 lb, the lens presents itself as a compact, lightweight option suitable for a variety of productions, from narrative work to run-and-gun documentaries. Notably, the lens is Canon's first cine-style option to incorporate image stabilization and auto focus functionality when paired with Cinema EOS cameras.

Further enhancing the versatility of this lens, Canon has equipped it with a servo drive unit compatible with industry-standard lens controllers, including Canon's broadcast ZSD-300D and FPD-400D, for full zoom, focus, and iris control. Alternatively, you can outfit the lens with the optional ZSG-C10 Control Grip for ENG-style lens control and operation. Power is provided to the grip from compatible cameras via the EF mount. For non-servo zoom control, the lens features cine-standard 0.8 mod gears, as well as a rubberized grip on the focus ring enabling comfortable manual operation.

    Canon 18-80mm reviews

    CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 COMPACT-SERVO Cinema Zoom Lens (EF Mount) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Servo Zoom for the Price Just received a demo unit of this Canon CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 Compact-Servo Cinema Zoom Lens to use with my Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K. Contrary to a previous review - I was pleased to find that the VTR/Record button on the lens does in fact work with the URSA Mini Pro, as do the auto iris and auto focus features.� I like the focal range of this compact zoom, and the rocker zoom is very smooth. The lens connected to the EF mount of my camera with a confident click, no play at all.� From my initial tests so far, this lens is parfocal all the way through the zoom only wish is that it was at least a stop brighter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens and Excellent Price! I got this lens to use with the Canon EOS C300 Markii for documentary work and love it! I've used cinema lenses for all makes of cameras, including 35mm film and in terms of image quality, I'd put this up against any of them. I also come from an ENG background and love the form factor of this lens. the 18-80mm is a really good range though, I'd like a bit more on the telephoto end (like maybe 110mm). The F4 is not as big a problem as I thought it might be, after using lenses that are much faster like 2.8 or 1.9.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the lens, the price really makes it an insane bargain. Combination of the new C200 and this lens is perfect for my run-n-gun film work. Lots of cine lenses out there, but not very many with the same features. Rented this lens to try it out. Used my 18-135 afterward and really felt and saw the difference in footage. Only one issue... At full-wide 18mm - sometimes the image stabilization will cause the lens hood to be visible in frame! So, might want to think about matte-box or taking off the lens hood for those circumstances.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall lens I love a lot of things about this lens. The build quality is solid. Surely constructed like a cinema lens. As far as the glass, it produces great images, but is it as good as a $10k-30k cinema lens? I can't say. The focal range is pretty perfect for run and gun shooters, b-roll shoots etc. That is the majority of my work and this lens is a great fit. I can see a dp who works mainly in the music video world or something like that not wanting anything to do with the 18-80. Ultimately, if you want the fujinon 19-90 but can't find or justify the extra $9000+, don't hesitate (if you have a Canon C body!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Canon Cinema Lens for All Types of Productions I got this lens to go with my C300 Mark II and let me tell you this is a perfect combo. They like each other. The auto focus with this camera and lens is beautiful to behold, very smooth, no hunting and many speeds to choose from in the C300 MK II menu. If you want to upgrade from the L series lenses to a real yet affordable cinema lens, get this one. The f4 is not a big deal as I still get nice bokeh as the cameras these days are much faster than previous years. Need a little more bokeh, step back and zoom in a little bit more. The stabilization has 3 settings on this lens and it is rock steady. I hand hold this camera and lens with the hand grip no probs. The quality and color tone is definitely like Canon's other cinema lenses we are familiar with. It has a noticable quality difference than the L series photo lenses. Crystal clear from edge to edge and parfocal. I tell you, for low budget to highest budget productions this lens pared with the Canon C300 Mark II and the new 70-200 compact cinema zoom from canon that looks just like this one is all one needs for a full production. Just add one prime lens like a 24mm or 35mm f1.2 for the big shallow bokeh scenes that might be required and you are good to go. This lens will work just fine on a Ronin gimbal so you can keep production running with just this lens, from tripod to shoulder to gimbal to crane and back on the tripod with little time waisted. And the best thing is the quality is a Canon cinema lens quality. A nice step up from their L series photo lenses. I have also tested this lens with a follow focus and is just fine at 180 degree focus pull. If you have used one on a L Series lens then this will be even better, but a little different than the 300 degree turn on a prime cinema lens. Or better yet, pull focus on a tablet touch screen with this lens and let the camera and lens do their thing works! Can't wait to get the new Canon 70-200 Compact Cinema zoom when it comes out. How many productions are done with the Canon L-Series lenses and we love the look? Well, this is steps above those lenses but this is made for VIDEO not photography and easy to use features on the lens for videographers and cinematographers. From ENG to Documentary to full narrative films I have found my affordable cinema zoom lenses with killer auto-focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear Choice for Documentary Cinematography Pairs very well with C300MKII and makes use of all the autofocusing features offered on the camera.� Very nice bokeh for an F4 lens at focal lengths from 50 to 80.� I generally don't recommend zooms for interviews, but this one is great for interviews because you can set the continuous auto-focusing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good I'm a DoP that works mostly on broadcast and cinema documentaries. I hired this lens for a doco shoot and walked away feeling it was just ok. But then when I reviewed the footage my opinion of this lens improved markedly to wow this is a real lens. There is very little to no breathing, very little distortion, the colour rendition and how it handles highlights and the focus fall off are all reminiscent of cine lenses costing a lot more! It just produces nice images and because it's parfocal, light and compact, and it's range is good, the end result is that more of your footage is usable, and in doco land that counts for a lot. Autofocus, servo and IS capabilities are nice bonuses. Of course we all want an 18-200 lens at a constant T2.0 that doesn't cost the earth but it doesn't exist. All lenses possess compromises and the compromises of this lens are fair. This is a true cine lens and if you can't see and feel the difference between it and a stills lens like the 24-105, then it's probably not for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from F 4 ...oh well, a step up from my 24-105mm Fills that lens gap for affordable hand held all purpose shooting. I miss the zoom length of a 24-105mm for close ups, but an aperture ring is a nice trade off. Most useful for me...Image Stabilization, not too heavy, aperture ring, internal focus, sharp glass.
