Cine Lens for filmmaking

Good quality and performance

Ridiculous Value

By James

This lens is perfect for budget narrative filmmaking covering the common focal lengths you'll need 95% of the time. Build quality is impressive. Iris, zoom, focus are smooth. Some edge softness, but minimal breathing and very good parfocal performance. Mated with my JVC LS300, this is an incredible value and unbeatable combination.

Das ist ein ordentliches, gut verarbeitetes Cine-Zoom. Nicht berzogen scharfe Bilder. Eben cinemig. Der Nahabstand von 79cm ist bichen knapp. Die Lieferung nach Europa war schnell und problemlos.

Like all other reviews! It’s a great lens! I the ParFocal feature is amazing and the zoom is internal it makes it perfect for shooting with a gimble! You’ll not need readjust your gimble every time you zoom in & out.

Better than I thought it would be.

This is a very nice lens. A touch soft at T2.9 but sharpens up by T3.5. Rings are very smooth.

Elegant image quality

By Murakami

The image is not too sharp and the bokeh is excellent. Chromatic aberration is a little high. Build quality is very impressive. The adjustable flange back is an essential feature for a lens to be used on a micro 4/3 mount from a different manufacturer. It's also great to be able to fine parforcal adjustment with this. It's an elegant image quality, and I love it for creating cinematic works of art.

Totally worth it!

I started on my video journey in Canon land, then when I realized how handcuffed their mirrorless offerings were, I transitioned to Lumix, and it was a great choice for me at the time. My first piece of glass that I was really happy with was Sigma's 18-35 zoom coupled with the Metabones adapter. I still like it. I didn't like re-focusing at different zoom levels at all. With the GH5S, I have almost always followed a full manual workflow, so when I added this DZO film manual zoom, there was no adjustment for me. I only saw benefits. The benefits to me are as follows in no particular order: Parfocal-how friXXen awesome is this! No Focus breathing, OMG a life changer! Probably the best part. A beautiful rendition of the color palette. A little softer than the Lumix photo lenses, but in a good way. It makes everything look more cinematographic. If your lighting is solid and your white balance locked in, you are going to get great results. I love how this lens looks, how it doesn't get in my way, and if I do a great job with my lighting, it rewards me greatly. (as always, it all starts with light!). This lens makes my job easier and makes me look good. What else is there to say?

is this a good lens for astrophotography?
Asked by: Edwin
Depending on the level of astrophotography you are engaging in, this is a fine, parfocal lens and it allows for some very impressive zooming capabilities. Just be mindful to consider the T2.9-T22 aperture and make sure that those specs are consistent with the type of imaging you are aspiring to achieve.
