Canon Cinema Prime CN-E 24mm T1.5 Overview

By B&H Photo's
The Canon CN-E 24mm T1.5 L F Cinema Prime Lens is a wide-angle, 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. It has an 11-blade iris that provides round out of focus highlights for a natural looking bokeh. 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 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, with the rear markings 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.

The CN-E 14mm and the other five CN-E lenses share the same 114m front barrel diameter, focus rotation, 36° iris rotation, and focus and iris gear positions, allowing for easier swaps.
Easy to Read, Easy to Use
Intended for the working professional, the EF Cinema Prime CN-E24mm T1.5 L F lens has markings on angled surfaces on both sides of the precise, 300° rotatable barrel, making it easy to read focus and aperture settings from behind or either side of the camera. Focus markings can be switched from standard labeling to metric. The control rings are engineered to maintain the proper amount of resistance with consistent operating torque.
Made for 4K
Designed to fulfill contemporary 4K production standards with its sharp optics, this lens features a full-frame imaging circle in a lightweight, compact design. It also features a very rounded 11-blade aperture diaphragm for beautiful background blur and innovative glass construction that counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature induced marking discrepancies.

question

Will this lens have any issues showing full footage from the Red Dragon 6K? Also what focal length is the 24mm an equivelent of on the Dragon 6K? I need to get close to 35mm. Does this have a 1.3 crop factor giving it a 31.2mm equivalent on the Dragon at 6K?
Asked by: Marcus
The CN-E 24mm T1.5 LF Cine Lens is meant to cover Full Frame sensor dimensions of 36 x 24 with its image circle of 43.27mm. The RED Dragon 6K sensor is 30.7 x 15.8 with an image circle of 34.5mm. Thus the CN-E 24mm T1.5 LF Cine Lens will easily cover the RED Dragon 6K sensor. Now on to the equivalency question. If you use a 24mm lens on the RED Dragon 6K, you get an angle of view of 65.20. To match 65.20 in Full Frame, you would need a 28mm.On a Full Frame camera, a 35mm lens will create an image with a 54 angle of view. On the RED Dragon 6K sensor, to match that 54 angle of view, you need a 30mm lens. The 1.3 crop factor calculation of 31.2mm is probably close enough.

question

can work with both cinematography and photography ?
Asked by: hasmukh p.
Yes absolutely! Better than the photo lenses, greater ability to manually fine tune the focus (and aperture), however..no autofocus.
