The DIGISUPER 23 xs XJ23x7B IE-D 7 to 161mm Studio Lens from Canon utilizes the Power Optical System and is compact enough for use with a portable camera. The DIGISUPER 23 xs provides an excellent optical performance and ease of operation. 

The DIGISUPER 23 xs lens has zero zooming effect of focus throughout the whole zoom range, thanks to the Constant Angle Focusing System (CAFS).

The digital servo system is reliable, consistent, and is not affected by electric interference. 

The PC connection for remote control or diagnostics can be accomplished via a communication interface on the lens and personal computer with software (sold separately).
