Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 DG Vario M43

A standard zoom lens for the Micro Four Thirds (M43) system offering a versatile focal range of 24-120mm in 35mm terms.

Power O.I.S. helps to combat camera shake, however lens extends when zooming, changing the centre of gravity meaning that if used for gimbals, a change of focal length will require rebalancing.  However at only 86mm (zoomed out) and 320g, it is extremely small and lightweight.

Sigma 18-35mm T2 Cine High-Speed Zoom (EF)

The Sigma 18-35mm T2 Cine High-Speed Zoom Lens incorporates a native Canon EF mount and is a completely new design from the previous DSLR optical range with new optics, new mechanics and genuine film housing with clear focus scale marked in feet.

These are genuine film lenses with EF mounts, so are heavier than DSLR zooms but optically they are beautiful, don't breathe (zoom when focussing) and will hold focus when zooming.  They are heavier than the equivalent DSLR zooms though (1.45kg/3.19lb), so will need to use the lens support foot (supplied) as the EF mount won't support it without.
