Lenses

Canon EF EOS DSLR Prime lens set optimised for cinema use.  

Compatible with DSLR use (Canon 7D, 5D, 1D) and EOS C300 without adaptation.  Also compatible with Panasonic AF-101 and other cameras with suitable lens adapter.  Please request suitable adapters when ordering.

VMI EOS sets have been modified to include a follow-focus ring which will allow an ARRI MFF1 follow focus to operate without attaching an external gear and the fronts have been modified to give a consistent 80mm donut size.

Please note that EOS lenses are designed to have iris controlled from the camera body, so as a rule, do NOT include a manual iris ring. If you plan to use these lenses with a manual camera (non Canon), such as Letus, RED etc without a digital lens conversion ring, then be aware that you will not be able to operate the iris ring and this will remain fully open whilst in use.

Front Element screw-in adapters

Note that VMI supplies all L-USM prime lenses with 80mm front element adapters, to allow them all to have a standard 80mm donut fitting for ease of using matte boxes.

However, these are removable to expose the original screw-in thread to fit screw-in adapters like the Genus variable ND screw-in filters.

The Canon L-USM Prime lenses 35mm, 50mm, 85mm & 135mm have a native 77mm thread adapter
The Canon L-USM Prime lenses 24mm has a native 82mm thread adapter
