Canon Show 17-120mm EF/PL Zoom w/- Servo Grip

The 17-120mm T2.95 EF or PL mount cine zoom covers focal lengths ideal for doco or reality TV shooting Super35mm sized sensors. With more productions being shot on Canon’s C300 or Sony’s F5/F55, this lens will suit many operators looking to maintain a quick and nimble shoulder mount configuration.

Featuring a removable handgrip, 4K optical performance edge-to-edge throughout the zoom range and an 11 blade iris, the 17-120 strikes an ideal balance between functionality and performance with no compromise in image quality.

The lens can communicate with EF or PL cameras using i/Cooke lens protocol. EF mount cameras such as the 1DC, C100, C300 and C500 can provide power through the EF mount. The lens also has a 12 pin connector for powering and communication with other cameras. For example, the F5/F55 will require the A-1989-838-A ZF-PL 12 pin adaptor to use this lens.

The lens mount can also be changed out at authorised Canon service centres and is expected to be available in August 2014 for a suggested list price of US$33,000 Click Here For More Info
