using Canon optical elements, while offering outstanding performance and
reliability in professional shooting environments.
The new lens is fully 4K-ready, with a high optical resolution and
support for Super35mm large-format cameras. An 11-blade aperture
diaphragm helps ensure an artistic and beautiful representation of
out-of-focus areas (or “Bokeh”).
The lens also features a high 7x zoom magnification, wide focal length
range of 17mm to 120mm, and a 180º smooth rotating focus ring.

iris/aperture in different ways than filmmakers, Canon has developed

and other broadcast productions.

control from a number of lens controllers including Canon’s standard
broadcast lens controllers (ZSD-300D/FPD-400D) and multiple industry
standard cinema lens controllers. The drive unit can be easily removed
for cinema-style shoots and can be easily re-attached without any manual
re-alignment. A 16-bit metadata output enables connection to virtual

Canon service facility.
