We now have acquired an in depth clarification (thanks) on the upcoming two cinema lenses that we leaked again in early March.
In keeping with the supply, these new lenses will not be based mostly on the RF mount. The lenses have been designed for the EF and PL mounts. This really is smart for Canon’s CINI lenses because the lenses would then help the most important doable market share of high-end cinema cameras. It could even be impractical to help PL and the RF mount in a single lens because the PL mount is 52mm for the flange to sensor distance, versus 20mm for the RF mount. In the meantime, the EF mount which can be a quasi-industry commonplace has a 44mm flange to sensor distance, making the conversion to PL much more reasonable.
These lenses are additionally designed for full-frame and are 8K succesful, and even bigger than full-frame picture circles. The supply mentions that the lenses are able to supporting Alexa LF. They’re additionally rumored to be the quickest cinema zooms out there in the marketplace when they’re launched.
Does all this sound costly? Oh sure, the costs are rumored to be round $35,000 every.
We predict extra particulars across the center of this month, if not the total announcement, and the lenses will most certainly be proven at NAB.
