Canon Cinema Prime CN-E 20mm T1.5 Overview

The Canon CN-E 20mm T1.5 L F Cinema Prime Lens is a manual focus prime lens that covers Full Frame and Super 35 sensor formats. The lens offers a maximum aperture of T1.5, useful when shooting in low light situations or when you want to capture that exceedingly shallow depth of field look.

The lens barrel features 300° of stepless, smooth rotation from close focus to infinity, giving you a high degree of precision and consistent focus.

The lens features standard cine lens gears and is designed to minimize focus breathing and also has innovative glass construction that counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature-induced marking discrepancies. It's dual focus, with markings on both sides of the barrel. The rear markings are on an angled surface, making it readable form either side of the camera. It also has a dust- and water-resistant housing to minimize maintenance during normal use.

Canon Cinema Prime CN-E 20mm T1.5 Reviews

Great lens

By Daniel
Rated 5 out of 5

I have always enjoyed wide angle lenses. I like the perspective and taking them out for landscapes, city scapes, even interiors and capturing the whole area on full format. This lens does that very well. Highly recommend this, esp with the C500 mk 2. Enjoy it.

Great purchase!

This lens beautiful and consistent in look and quality with the other CN-E primes. Excellent new addition to the CN-E lineup. You won't regret.

How compatable is this lens with the 5D mark IV for stills?
Asked by: Bill
This lens can be used for stills. However it will be completely manual, you will have to manually control the focus and adjust the Iris on the lens. You will not be able to control the lens on your camera.
