Canon lens v2

Number one has to be this new 18-80 from Canon a company who listens to its customer base bring out a badly needed servo zoom lens for large sensor cameras like the Canon C300 Mk11 or the Sony FS7 with Canon adapter.

AG-UX180 copy

Another well designed 4K camcorder from Panasonic the AG-UX180 with its 20x servo zoom lens.

SMALL HD Bolt

Lastly the new HDR monitors from smallHD, they look a cracking piece of kit at a cracking price.

    Hi Philip.

    I’m surprised you rated the new Canon zoom lens as one of the best. Actually I was very disappointed to find out that that new lens has an infinity focus ring like all other photo lenses out there. Very far from what we all wished for. Again half backed product from Canon.

    Thanks.

    HDW : Hi Johnnie, its more the fact that a lens manufacturer is listening to the needs of the filmmakers and also hoping Sony will eventually respond with a similar lens themselves.

    Hi Philip!

    Sony already did with their equivalent FE PZ 28-135mm lens. Unlike the Canon lens, that one has hard stops for min/max focus.

    Anyway, let’s hope Canon will continue to develop and improve this lens line as promised.

    Take care and feel good!
