Canon Compact-Servo CN-E 70-200mm T4.4 Reviews

Wow! Great cine zoom

By Ronald
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-24

This lens had been purchased for a Canon C300 MK III, and it did not disappoint. It is sharp, contrasty and quick to focus in AF mode. My only complaint relates to the included zoom rocker grip. If this lens is to be used with the aforementioned cine camera, the grip will physically impede the use of the camera's own grip and it will have to be removed. I've replaced the zoom rocker grip with a 3rd party zoom control that completely solves the problem.

Wonderful Cine lens

I have read several reviews that have taken issue with this lens being labeled as a 'cine' lens. The reviewers had not been specific about their complaints, but I have found the lens to be a much sharper renderer than its non servo, EF equivalent which I do own. With a 3rd party zoom rocker it functions smoothly. That said, when combined with a Canon C300 Mk III, its C-AF is somewhat slow, but accurate. The OIS, on the other hand, functions beautifully.

Excellent Optics, terrible accompanying zoom rocker grip

By Ronald

This lens had been purchased to be used with a Canon C300 Mk III. It is sharp, renders beautifully and is relatively lightweight for a zoom of this magnitude. The accompanying grip, however, represents a terrible mismatch for the C300 with its own grip attached, as they come so physically close as to make either one unusable. I have removed the lens grip and have placed it back into the box that it had arrived in and I suspect that it will never see the light of day. It really is a shame, since the lens grip allows for modulated zooms that excel when compared to the controls mounted on the lens itself. In summary, I would give 5 stars for the lens, and and 0 for the grip.

We paired this lens with the C200 for our church livestream services, it has taken the image to a whole new level. It is sharp, clear, and it produces a good image.

Wonderful lens for the Blackmagic URSA Mini G2! Can control focus, iris and zoom using LANC thru the lens mount or ATEM software. Only bummer is the T4.4...would have been better with 2.8...but fantastic lens nonetheless.

This lens is a lot lighter than I thought it would be. What is not to like about a parfocal lens? The lens is expensive, but it is so much easier to use and allows the user to just concentrate on the shot or the story.

Excellent lens

The lens produces sharp and pleasing images when coupled with my C300 Mk III, and the Image Stabilization is welcome feature. The Focal length range is wonderful as well, however, the included grip cannot be used in concert with that of the camera because there isn't enough room between them. I had to replace the needed zoom rocker with a 3rd party device that works well, even better than the one provided by the grip. With that exception I would buy it again.

Incomplete

By Sam
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-17

The lens and the focus/zoom controllers work amazingly well, but the kit is incomplete. Only one of the two controllers can be plugged into the lens at a time. It takes a $500 Y cable to make them work together. The products work well, but I didn't appreciate the extra $500 surprise. ikan STR-CN-E-Y is what I had to buy.

Will this lens restrict any of the full frame or 5.9k benefits of the to-be-released C500 Mark ii?
Asked by: Joe C.
This lens only covers up to a Super 35mm sensor. You will be able to use it with the C500 Mark II, but it will not cover the full frame. You will not be able to use this lens in full frame mode with that camera.

question

Can I use a zoom and focus controller at the same time with this lens. I want to use the ZSD-300D and the FPD-400D. Can I use both of these at the same time?
Asked by: Dean
There is a 20-pin HRS Connector on the lenses. This is so you can use a Zacuto Z-CNYC Y-cable and Canons FPD-400D focus Control and ZSD-300D Zoom Control.

The lens is spec super35 70-200 4.4. Is the 70 to 200 for frame equivalent or is that what it is for super35? If it is for super 35, then is the full frame equivalent like 100-280 because of the 1.4x crop?
Asked by: Chris
Lenses are always listed by their physical focal length and are then subject to the crop factor of the camera, even for lenses designed for Super 35mm. This will be the equivalent of a 105-300mm with a 1.5x crop.

question

Will all the remote zoom and Iris functions work with a Sigma E-mount adapter on a Sony FS5?
Asked by: Sashwat
There are no reports of that particular combination so the definitive answer is unknown. That being said, the adapter works well with Sony still cameras and Canon still lenses so our opinion is there is a good chance this could work.
