Fujinon XK20-120mm T3.5 Cabrio Overview

This Fujinon XK20-120mm T3.5 Cabrio Lens is the lens only and does not include the servo zoom unit, which you can source separately. It is a wide-to-telephoto zoom lens for Super35 cameras and features a PL mount. The focus, zoom, and iris barrels are geared with standard 0.8 Mod gears, which provides an interface for the optional ENG-style digital drive unit.

The rear PL mount features electrical contacts for sharing ARRI LDS and Cooke /i Technology lens data with the camera; however, you need the optional digital drive unit to activate these contacts. An included rectangular lens hood provides flare protection and is useful for run-and-gun or ENG-style shooting. A removable lens support is included with the lens.

T3.5 to T22 aperture with nine iris blades for attractive bokeh.
Industry-standard 0.8 film Mod gears for focus, zoom, and iris control.
Power and data/control connections to the camera via connectors in the rear of the lens.
16-bit encoding supports sharing LDS and /i Technology lens data with the camera.
The barrel markings are imperial measurements.
Luminous barrel markings make it easier to read measurements.
200° focus barrel rotation and 120° zoom rotation.
No shims are required to adjust the flange focal distance.
Macro focus function available.
Optional Drive Unit
The optional detachable drive unit is an ENG-style handgrip with a zoom rocker switch, 16-bit encoding, and an interface for remote control via a wired or wireless controller from Fujinon or other compatible, third party manufacturers. When the drive unit is attached to the lens, a digital auto-aligning system quickly and accurately calibrates it to the zoom, focus, and iris gears.
  • Power is provided by either an external connector or the PL mount's interface.
  • LDS and i/Technology Lens Data contacts in the PL mount become active

Gorgeous in every respect

This is a gorgeous lens, both in the images it produces and the image it projects. When B&H unboxed my lens at the counter, three or four B&H staff gathered around to admire it; And they are people who have handled nice kit in their jobs. But more important are the pictures this lens helps you make — tack sharp and luxuriant color. No complaints at all. I also do not notice any appreciable breathing or chromatic aberration. There is some barrel and pincushion distortion, noticeable only when shooting rectangular objects straight on, which I have found easy to correct in post. Build quality and physical design are also important for image quality. The xk20-120 is a class act in this regard also. It is built to last, solid, to tight tolerances. I bought the lens without the servo and never missed having motors. In my style of shooting I almost always have the lens barrel within reach. The action of iris, focus and zoom are smooth, silent, and well controlled. Within the first days of use, I found that I was easily able with one hand to pull focus while zooming gradually wider on an approaching subject. There are other nice touches, like a very accessible backfocus adjustment and a rudimentary macro capability. One thing, though, the lense is heavy-ish, 7.8 kg (6.1 lbs) (with no servo). On top of that, the center of gravity seems a bit forward, which accentuates the perception of weight when shooting on your shoulder. Plan this into your rig. I use this lense on a Black Magic Ursa Mini Pro, whose sensor is significantly larger than the rated image circle of the Fujinon. Yet even shooting full frame, this lense did surprisingly well. Vignetting is there if you look for it, but for practical purposes this is no problem. When shooting full frame on the UMP there is also some subtle softening at the outer edges of the image, beyond the advertised image circle. Again, this is not a problem. On the contrary, the psychologic effect is to make the center region of the image pop more. Light transmission maxes out at T3.5 (with no ramping). Considering the Laws of Physics and the Fujinon's uncompromising build quality, not to mention price point, that's not bad. If you need more, there is a T2 Fujinon zoom with a great reputation that weighs 2.5x as much and costs 4x as much. I recommend this lens without hesitation. If you invested in a camera capable of excellent images, don't cheat on glass. Get this Fujinon. Just make sure you rig for it, and make sure you feed your rig enough light.

Great Lens!

I was able to demo this lens, and I have to admit it's pretty sweet! It is larger than I had expected but it becomes a mute issue when you see the images. Parfocal errors are undetectable. The available zoom control motor makes it a perfect solution for my Sony PMW-F5.

Solid focal range, great build and price point.

Great lens that covers a huge range at a descent T-stop. Matches other Fujinon lenses.

this lens is nothing short of awesome! after one test shoot with this beast, im in love. the wife will be on couch and the lens in bed with me. the color is amazing and i love the sharpness of this. until now we have been on our xeen primes, which i love as well. but this is an entirely different level. here is a link of some test footage we shot the day we got it! it is a heavy lens, so be ready for that. https://youtu.be/OtGjh1NkF5c

Still one of the best lenses on the market.

Its just the combination of build quality, image, range, T-stops and price. Cant find a cheaper lens with that zoom range while keeping this great Japanese quality. Lens for decades.

question

Will old Fujinon servos from ENG lenses fit on this lens?
Asked by: ethan
Sorry, no. The gears on this lens have the cine 0.8 pitch and not the ENG 0.6 pitch. Therefore the ENG servo motor gears will not mesh.

question

Will this lens be able to handle both the sensor size of a RED Epic-w and it's 8k resolution?
Asked by: ethan
Thanks for your reply...The description on the BH listing says it covers 31.5 diagonal which is close to Epic-w.I guess I could shoot in 7k to avoid vignetting... but would lose a bit of the wide end.

question

What size screw on filter will this take?
Asked by: Dow
The Fujinon XK20-120mm T3.5 cannot take a screw on filter. You will need this adapter: Schneider 114mm SSLR to 4.5 Adapter Ring B&H # SCFH114. You could also consider this clip-on matte box. Alphatron 4 x 4 Clip-On Matte Box (114mm) B&H # ALPMBCO4X4. This will allow faster exchange of filters, some protection from flare and bumps and it looks cool. A third idea is full blown matte box on 15mm LWS rods. Here is one fine idea: Bright Tangerine Misfit Matte Box Kit 3 B&H # BRB12300016 and something like this depending on your camera: Zacuto VCT Universal Baseplate B&H # ZAZVCT.

Can this lens be mounted on a Sony FX9 shooting in S35 mode? also how do you power the Lens Servo when Attached to an FS7 with PL - E mountAdapter?
Asked by: mitch
Yes, it you have an PL to E-mount Adapter you will be able to use this lens with the FX9 in Super 35mm mode. As far as power Fujinon has the 20-Pin to P-Tap Cable for this lens, BH #FUSA206KR70P. You would just need a battery with a P-Tap or D-Tap port. https://bhpho.to/34R4xee

question

Hi, does the servo drive work off lens so I can use in place of the FS7/servo?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sorry, but in order to have servo functions, the servo motor drive/hand grip must be in place. You can use ENG zoom and focus demands to control it however.
