Product details

High Speed Zoom Line

High Speed Zoom Line offers the constant aperture of T2 throughout the zoom range, and the optical performance is ready for high resolution shooting such as 6K - 8K. Furthermore, while offering the highest image quality in its class, the High Speed Zoom Line has a compact construction and offers outstanding value.

FF Zoom Line

FF Zoom Line is compatible with a full frame image circle, and the optical performance is ready for high resolution shooting such as 6K - 8K. It provides a rare option for cinematographers since very few lenses can cater to the requirements of the latest digital cinema cameras' image sensors, which are larger than Super 35, and expands the range of compatible cameras. This cinema zoom lens offers the highest image quality and compact design.

Note: 24-35mm T2.2 FF is not available in PL mount.

FF High Speed Prime Line

The lineup ranges from 14mm to 135mm and covers T1.5 to T2. The lenses are compatible with full frame sensors and, while being more compact, can offer higher resolution than other high-end prime sets do. With the seven prime lenses from FF High Speed Prime Line, there is no need to change the lighting to shoot a variety of cuts, and it is possible to meet the demands that professional movie creation requires.
