4K EF Cinema Lens Lineup

Canon’s Cinema EOS System makes its Hollywood debut with an all-star cast featuring seven new 4K EF Cinema Lens models: four zoom lenses covering a wide zoom range from 14.5 mm to 300 mm-two models each for EF and PL lens mounts-and three single-focal-length lenses for EF mounts. All seven new lenses deliver exceptional 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) optical performance and offer compatibility with Super 35 mm-equivalent sensors. Additionally, the three single-focal-length lenses can be used with cameras equipped with 35 mm full-frame sensors.

The camera features a Super 35 mm-equivalent approximately 8.29-megapixel CMOS sensor ideally suited for digital cinematography.

    50Mbps is good.But still needs a EVF( looks like this isnt going to change anytime soon) as the viewfinder becomes an option/extra.. I dont mind but the HDMI link is a very weak one..and another battery to worry about.speaking of which it still needs a rig for a larger battery,mattbox,and to be handheld.
    So still a camera that needs a few extra bits hanging off it.. which as you rightly say.. is not what freelance camera people want.. but for sure a good drama/commercial/music video camera.
    But when does the doc one ever get built.. maybe never.. until a super 35mm zoom lens can be made same size and cost as 2/3 inch ones.
