Canon isn’t a company to sit on it’s laurels and watch a competitor create and dominate a whole new market in the cinema zoom world.
And true to form they have put Fujinon and it’s ever popular Cabrio 19-90mm lens on notice.
And not one to be outdone, Canon is trying to trump the Cabrio’s specs, at least on paper at least. The lens boasts both a wider and longer reach going from 17 all the way to 120mm at a constant T2.95 and scales down to a 3.5 as you ramp up to 120mm (an interesting T-stop number and basically equal to the T2.9 cabrio, except the Cabrio doesn’t ramp down).
Check out the video below for a special NAB Sneak Peak at this new workhorse lens from Canon.
