NEW LENSES TO SEE AT NABSHOW 2017

New Canon 70-200 Cine Zoom: EF, AF, AE, IS

Exactly a year ago at NAB 2016, Canon introduced a new cine lens  for Super 35. The Compact Servo 18-80 mm T4.4 (CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS) EF-mount zoom was a compelling hybrid that combined the best attributes of cine and still photography.

Three different lines of Canon lenses intersect in the design: more than 60 L-Series EF lenses for professional still photography, Cinema Zooms with manual focus/iris/zoom barrels (15.5-47, 30-105, 14.5-60, 30-300 mm), and Cine-Servo (17-120, 50-1000 mm) zooms. Now, a year later at NAB 2017, Canon's Compact Servo family gets a new sibling. The Canon 70-200 mm T4.4 (CN-E70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS S) EF-mount zoom covers longer, essential focal lengths.

And so, with just two lightweight, compact, affordable, high performance lenses, you can cover any angle from wide 18 mm to long 200 mm. An accessory 2x extender gets you to 400 mm.

SIGMA Cine Full Frame 14mm T2 & 135mm T2

SIGMA Corporation adds two more cine lenses at NAB. Covering incredibly wide and extremely tight,  the new cine lenses in  the SIGMA FF High Speed Prime Line are 14mm T2 FF and 135mm T2 FF.

 There are now seven prime lenses in the SIGMA FF High Speed Prime Line:  14, 20, 24, 35, 50, 85, and 135mm. All these cine lenses come with PL, EF and E-mounts. (Only the 24-35 T2.2 FF Zoom lacks a PL mount option: it comes in EF and E-mount only.) SIGMA offers a mount conversion service.

Angénieux Optimo Style 48-130 T3.0

Angenieux welcomes a 3rd sister in their lightweight, high-class, high-quality, compact Optimo Style family of S35 mm format zooms. The new 48-130 T3.0  zoom lens joins the Optimo Style 16-40 T2.8 and 30-76 T2.8 zooms. Actually there’s a 4th Style sibling, a bit longer, less accustomed to hand-holding, but equally popular. He’s the bigger  brother: Angenieux’s Optimo Style 25-250 T3.5.

The new 48-130 T3.0 is the longest zoom in the lightweight series: excellent for close-ups, portraits, and tighter angles on all productions.

The Angenieux Optimo Style 48-130 has superb optical performances, covers an image circle up to 34.6 mm diameter, with a constant maximum aperture of T3.0. There’s no ramping (change of exposure) when zooming in. As with the rest of the Optimo Style family, there’s minimal breathing (changing image size when focusing), minimal distortion and minimal optical aberration.

 New Cooke S7/i Full Frame Plus

The new Cooke S7/i lenses cover an image circle up to 46.31 mm diameter. That’s every format from RED 8K VV 21.60×40.96 mm (46.31 diagonal) to Full Frame 24×36 mm (43.3 mm diagonal) Full Frame and Large Format is gathering momentum. It is future-proof because these lenses work equally well on Super35, current Full Frame, VV and the inevitable arrival of new cameras to come.

The new Cooke S7/i lenses are extremely fast and go incredibly close. Maximum aperture is T2. Minimum object distance is around 4 to 6 inches in front of the wider ones. Front diameters are nicely compact at 110 mm.

Cooke /i Technology connections are in the expected places. Focus is the same familiar Cooke cam-drive mechanism that feels as smooth and silky as the image looks. The main difference is large format coverage.

Available beginning June 2017 in focal lengths: 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75, 100 and 135 mm..

Leica Thalia Large Format Cine Lenses

CW Sonderoptic introduces nine new prime lenses that cover all formats from Alexa 65, Panavision DXL, RED 8K VV, Full Frame, to Super35.

Leica Thalia primes ship with stainless steel PL mounts. An XPL version will be available for ARRI Rental. Thalia lenses have front diameters that are all 95 mm, just like Leica Summilux-C and Summicron-C lenses. They work with the same front accessories like clamp-on Leica Cine MacroLux +0.5, +1, +2 diopters. Thalias accept 92 mm screw-in front filters and have a rear net holder just like the Summilux-C. Incredibly, most of the large format Thalias are actually lighter and shorter than the Super35 Summicron-C primes, which are already extremely light and small. The mechanical design is consistently Leica-like, rugged and ergonomic.

The 15-bladed irises are totally round at every aperture and create the same beautiful, smooth bokehs across the entire set. The iris ring is linear—marks are evenly spaced across all T stops.

The initial set of 6 Thalia lenses is expected to ship around July: 30, 35, 45, 70, 100, 180 mm. The remaining 3 Thalias should ship towards the end of 2017: 24, 55, and 120 mm with close focus capability.
