Lens markings are displayed in feet, and the focus ring rotates 300° for precision.
8K HDR Image Capture
The CN-R lenses are rated for 8K HDR image capture for high-quality color rendition and sharp detail throughout your image. Multiple lens coatings correct various aberrations and create the Canon-characteristic warm image tone. Color reproduction is consistent across the series, minimizing the need for color correction in post. The 8K chromatic aberration correction reduces color bleeding, while the light-shielding design and optimized coatings prevent unwanted ghosting or flares.
Select Camera Compatibility
Currently, the CN-R lens series brings select feature compatibility to Canon EOS C70 and R5 C camera models. This includes distortion correction, which is facilitated via high-speed data transfer for transferring metadata and lens characteristics directly to the camera. Dual-pixel focus guides, peripheral illumination, and chromatic aberration correction are exclusive to these camera models as well.
Intuitive Lens Switching
Common gearing positions, 114mm front diameter, 105mm filter diameter, and shared focus rotation range ensure consistency across the lens series. Use the same follow focus system, matte box, lens filters, or other tools, no matter the focal length mounted on your camera.

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.
