Canon CN-E 70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS

Canon has released a cinema version of their popular 70-200mm f4 lens in a anodized red tube .The new  CN-E 70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS may sound like a mouthful but it is in  fact Can
CNE 70-200 with the optional control grip
on's attempt to give a cost effective solution for a 4K ready cinema zoom lens .

First striking thing to note is that the new lens does feature manual iris control (along with autofocus control which sits in a servo box at the belly of the lens) - perfect for run and gun documentary or mounted scenes where manual adjustments wont do (the lens also has image stabilization) , and also support for Canon's ZSG C10 control grip from which you can control the servo motor unit and pull focus and do other functions which typically demand a focus puller (this feature is only compatible with Canon's Cinema systems at the moment )

Rest of the specs include a 9 blade iris (one higher than the photographic version) , a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m and a weight of 1.2kg . Potential buyers who own the Canon EF 1.4x III or EF 2x III can extend the focal range to 98-280mm or 140mm-400mm respectively (or more as  in the case of Super 35 or MFT) .Pricing details are yet to be anounced , but considering that CNE lenses do command a high price , expect to pay about double the price of the standard f4 IS version .
