Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 Overview

The Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 Lens in E Mount is a lightweight cine-style zoom lens for E-mount cameras with a Super 35mm-sized sensor. It features a mechanical design with three independent lens control rings: focus, iris, and zoom. Each ring incorporates a cine-style gear with a 0.8 MOD for interfacing with standard cine -style lens accessories. The focus ring features approximately 200° of rotation, which provides room or precise focus pulls, and the iris is clickless, enabling smooth iris pulls. The lens also incorporates a macro mode for close focusing capabilities.

The lens is color matched to other Fujinon lenses such as the HK, ZK, and XK series, which enables smooth intercutting between lenses. The 85mm front enables use with many cine-style matte boxes via use of optional step up rings (rings not included). The lens weighs only 2.16 pounds, which is fairly light for a cinema zoom that holds focus and aperture throughout the focal length range. It is designed for camera's with a Sony E mount, so it has a short flange focal distance, but the lens allows for flange focal distance adjustment so you can fine tune it to the camera you are using the lens on.

T2.9 to T22 aperture with 9 iris blades for attractive bokeh
The 28.5mm diameter image circle covers the 3-perf super 35 format with a 16:9 aspect ratio
Industry standard 0.8 film pitch gears for focus, zoom, and iris control
The gear rings positions for focus, zoom, and iris are located at the same position on both lenses in the MK series, making switching between the two zooms quick as you don't have to adjust the position of lens accessories
Both lenses in the MK series have the same weight and length so here is no need to rebalance your camera when you change from one lens to the other
200° focus barrel rotation
No shims are required to adjust the flange focal distance as this lens has a built-in adjustment mechanism
Macro focus function available

To be clear, I can switch mounts between E and MFT with the help of MTF Services but can not do so on the X version of this lens, right ?
Asked by: Pierre
correct because of the difference in Flange distances between E, MFT mount and Fuji X you can not change this to an X mount here are the flange distances for the mount systems E mount:18 mm Micro Four Thirds System: 19.25 mm Fujifilm X-mount: 17.7 mm

The listing says that it's MFT, just wanting to confirm that it will work with the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K? I'm also curious about recommended focus/zoom/iris controls for a live broadcast setup?
Asked by: Joshua
The BMD Studio Camera 4K does have an MFT mount. These lenses will work with that camera. However they are manual cinema lenses. For Focus, Zoom and Iris Control you would need to look at a system like the Tilta Nucleus-M and add a 3rd motor to it.

Do you need to adjust back focus at all to get the lens perfect parafocal throughout the zoom? Shims etc
Asked by: Warren
When working with different cameras, even if the mounts are the same, it is always safe to test your back focus before your shoot to ensure the lens focus is correct. No shims are required to adjust the flange focal distance as this lens has a built-in adjustment mechanism
