CANON CINE 50-1000MM T5.0-8.9

The Canon CINE 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 (also known as the Canon 20×50) has been designed for use on cinema cameras with Super 35 sized sensors and is capable of covering 4K with a 31.4 image circle.

The lens can be equipped with a detachable drive unit that houses servo motors and a zoom rocker or it can be paired with traditional Focus Iris Zoom units such as the WCU-4 and Cmotion Panbar Zoom Unit. The servo can receive power directly from the camera via the PL lens data pins found on most digital cameras. The pins also allow the lens and the camera to communicate via Cooke/i Lens Data protocols meaning lens metadata can be recorded on the camera.

With a 1.5x extender built into the lens, the range can extend up to 1500mm coverage.

The 11 blade aperture design allows the lens to maintain a constant T5.0 up 560mm (without the extender) then stopping down to T8.9 up to 1000mm. With the 1.5x extender in place 75-840mm is covered at T7.5 while the longer end (1500mm) stops down to T13.35.
