Hey BrainBox Fans,
This announcement is no less than game-changing in the Zoom Lens market.
Fujinon has been making some serious waves recently with their very popular Cabrio 19-90mm lens. Looks like they are expanding into the big dog’s market and putting lenses like the Angenieux Optimo 24-290 12X Zoom right in their sights.
The new Cabrio 25-300mm is a serious lens at nearly 18 lbs. It’s not quite as fast as the Optimo but with Fuji’s great track record recently for tack sharp lenses with great designs, not to mention it’s integrated motor control box, this lens looks killer.
For years we’ve seen this segment dominated by other players, but it looks like that trend may be about to change.
BrainBox Cameras plans to rent out the new 25-300mm this summer, pricing tbd, but you can bet it’ll be very competitive!
Check out the video below for a sneak peak at this behemoth as filmed by BrainBox crew at NAB 2014!
