  • New optical design
  • Covers full frame
  • Lightweight for its class (6lbs/2.6kg) and 235mm long
  • 310 degrees focus throw
  • PL mount
  • Compatible with ARRI FF4 & FF5 Follow-Focus
  • IRO ready
  • Supports Cooke metadata
  • T2.9 aperture
  • Low distortion
  • Very minimal focus breathing
  • Optical design to balance contrast, resolution, and a pleasing, cinematic look
  • Internal focus and zoom
  • Estimated price of around $40,000 (we don’t know the actual price yet)

It’s nice to see more full frame cinema zoom lenses coming out.  The 21-56mm, with its unusual focal length range, will be the next lens released in this series, to be released at a later date.
