Canon Adds Two Lenses to Its ‘Cinema Prime’ Line

The CN-E14 millimeter T3.1 L F and CN-E135 millimeter T2.2 L F join other Canon primes

Canon U.S.A. Inc. unveiled the latest addition to its cinema prime lenses, the CN-E14 millimeter T3.1 L F and CN-E135 millimeter T2.2 L F single-focal-length lenses for large-format single-sensor cameras employing Super 35 millimeter or full frame 35-millimeter imagers.
Those two new lenses join with other Canon primes providing a line of precision-matched EF-mount cinema prime lenses that provide high optical performance levels and a choice of versatile focal lengths for a wide range of creative shooting choices, the company says.
All of Canon’s cinema prime lenses are part of the Canon “Cinema EOS” System of professional digital cinematography products, according to Yuichi Ishizuka, the company’s executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group.
All Canon Cinema EOS lenses integrate advanced materials and coatings to meet high optical performance levels, including 4K (4096 x 2160) production standards, the company says. Each Canon cinema lens is equipped with an odd-numbered 11-blade aperture diaphragm, which is ideally suited to achieve creative depth-of-field manipulation and pleasing “bokeh” effects of cinematographic quality.
The Canon line of cinema prime lenses is precision-matched for consistent and solid optical performance that minimizes focus-induced changes in the angle of view, the company says, All feature a full-frame image circle in a lightweight, compact design, and they incorporate proven Canon lens elements designed to fulfill contemporary “4K” production standards.
All the primes deliver color tone and balance that matches Canon’s top-end Cinema zooms and compact cinema zooms, the company says. Canon cinema prime lenses are also water-resistant for severe shooting conditions and deliver the operation and reliability required in professional film-style shooting environments, the firm adds.
