Zoom Lens

With a focal length range of 30-300mm, the 10x cinema zoom lens is designed to cover the longer end of the focal lengths typically required by cinematic productions, and its maximum telephoto length of 300mm puts it among the best in its class. (The other zoom lens in the line, the CN-E 14.5-60mm T2.6 L S, covers the wider end.)

Important to mention that this does not have a fixed iris over the entire range but maintains is a relatively fast T2.95 throughout much of its range, increasing to T3.7 at the long end of the zoom.  The 11-blade iris enables a smooth bokeh for out-of-focus areas of the frame.

The focus rotation angle is about 300°; for zoom, it’s approximately 160°.

The CN-E 30-300mm T2.95-3.7 L S lens complements the other lens in the line in more ways than just focal length range: Their shared 136mm front diameter, gear positions, and rotation angle make them almost “hot-swappable” when they’re used with a shared matte box or follow focus.
