Lenses

Canon Prime Lenses

Spanning the range of 14 to 135mm, these six prime lenses comprise a comprehensive shooting package that covers full-frame and Super 35mm production. Each lens is designed with optics for 4K capture and focus and iris gears that share the same position from lens to lens. The wide-angle lenses feature minimal edge distortion for a sharp images corner-to-corner, while the longer lenses in the set maintain a fast maximum aperture for shallow depth of field or low-light shooting.

Canon Zoom Lenses

Designed to support 4K resolution in Super 35 sensors, these CN-E lenses collectively cover from 14.5 to 300mm in either short or long zoom ranges. Available in either PL or Canon EF mount, the lenses incorporate an 11-blade iris that produces a natural looking bokeh and share focus and zoom gear positions for rapid lens changes without having to adjust your lens accessories. The CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm features a removable ENG-style zoom drive and incorporates a 1.5x extender that increases its range to 75 to 1500mm.
