The Canon CN-E 15.5-47mm T2.8 L S Wide-Angle Cinema Zoom Lens with EF Mount joins the ranks of other Canon Cinema lenses that are engineered to serve the high-performance demands of the production community. Designed to work with 4K-resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels) cameras this EF mount lens surpasses the performance requirements of any HD imaging system.
Supports 4K Production Standards
High optical performance designed for use with 4K-resolution(4096 x 2160 pixels) cameras offers a level of resolution exceeding four times the resolution of Full HD. The CN-E 15.5-47mm T2.8 L S Wide-AngleCinema Zoom Lens with EF mount is compatible with full-frame (35mm equivalent) and APS-C sized sensors.
Minimum fixed f/2.8 Aperture
This offers bright performance, and the flexibility to shoot in very low lit environments. And with no changes in brightness during zooming, enables attractive bokeh when employing a shallow depth of field. It also features fluorite and large aspherical lens elements allowing the lens to achieve sharp, consistent images throughout its zoom range. This offers peace of mind to the user that the image will stay consistent and sharp throughout.
Reduced M.O.D. of 19.7″
The lens offers a reduced minimum object distance of 19.7″ (0.5 m) which makes possible tighter close-ups and facilitates shooting in limited-space environments. For this flexibility, it makes the lens a popular pick for production groups that will be shooting both in field and on stage.
Special Glass & Construction
Innovative glass construction counter acts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature-induced marking discrepancies, a beneficial feature for those who shoot under bright and hot production lights. The lens also is equipped with control rings designed to maintain the proper amount of resistance with consistent operating torque, and a covered flange-back adjustment mechanism to meet numerous production application needs.
Better Marking Visibility
Focus, zoom, and iris markings are printed on angled surfaces, making them easier to read from behind the camera.
The lens is equipped with an 11-blade aperture diaphragm for soft and smooth out-of-focus areas, attractive blur characteristics.
Flange-Back Adjustment Mechanism
A covered flange-back mechanism is included for more accurate back-focus.
Internal Focus Design
With a focus rotation angle of approximately 300 degrees, the lens facilitates precise focusing performance. And geared inner focusing is utilized to minimize focus-induced changes in the angle of view, reducing focus breathing virtually to zero.
Supports Standard Accessories
The lens can be used with matte boxes and other standard manual and electronic movie industry accessories widely used in the motion picture production.
Advanced Optical Design and Large Aspherical Lens
The lens also features advanced optical design with fluorite and large aspherical lens elements to achieve sharp, consistent images throughout their zoom range.
