Canon has announced two new additions to its cinema lens lineup – the CN-E Flex Zoom 14-35mm T1.7 PL/EF and the CN-E 31.5-95mm T1.7 PL/EF lenses. These new lenses are designed for use with Super 35mm cameras and are part of Canon’s popular Cinema EOS System.
The CN-E 14-35mm T1.7 PL/EF lens is a wide-angle zoom lens that offers a focal range of 14-35mm. It features a fast T1.7 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, making it ideal for low-light shooting situations. The lens also features Canon’s innovative Flex Zoom System, which allows for smooth and precise zooming. The lens is also compact and lightweight, making it easy to handle and perfect for handheld shooting.
The CN-E 31.5-95mm T1.7 PL/EF lens, on the other hand, offers a longer focal range of 31.5-95mm. Like the CN-E 14-35mm lens, it also features a fast T1.7 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, as well as Canon’s Flex Zoom System. The lens is designed to deliver exceptional optical performance, with minimal distortion and high contrast. It’s also compact and lightweight, making it easy to handle and perfect for handheld shooting.
Both lenses feature a rugged, durable design, with weather-resistant construction that can withstand challenging shooting conditions. They also feature focus and zoom markings on both sides of the barrel, making them easy to use with a variety of different rigs and setups.
Releasing along side these lenses are the new Relay kits. The Canon RL-F1 and RL-F2 allow for the new CN-E’s to be converted to Full Frame lenses. Canon is also offering the Canon RL-S1 and RL-S2, allowing you to convert your lenses back to Super 35. These allow the new CN-E 14-35mm, and CN-E 31.5-95mm to fit which ever sensor size is needed for your project.
In addition to the new lenses, Canon has also announced updates to its Cinema EOS camera lineup, including the EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C70 cameras. The updates include support for the new CN-E 14-35mm and CN-E 31.5-95mm lenses, as well as improvements to autofocus performance and other features.
