Experience greater visual expressiveness with new
Canon EF Cinema Lens series
The new COMPACT-SERVO series is designed to deliver stellar 4K imaging, and excellent device handling and operability for diverse shooting needs

SINGAPORE, 21 April 2016 – Canon today announced a new addition to the company’s EF Cinema Lens line-up, the CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S. As the first lens in the new COMPACT-SERVO series, this new cinema lens can be used with the super 35mm sensor-equipped 4K and HD cameras. The lens employs an EF mount and a compact, lightweight[1] body design that is unique to this new lens series.
The CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S features an 18 – 80 mm[2] focal length range, excellent operability and handling to accommodate varied shooting styles, and is capable of providing a level of optical performance for use with 4K cameras and HD cameras. The lens accommodates tripod, rig, and also handheld and shoulder-mounted shooting, making it suitable for a diverse range of on-location shooting situations such as weddings, serial dramas, commercials, documentaries, and field reporting.
This lightweight, compact cinema lens from Canon features a built-in motorised zoom mechanism that enables smooth zooming performance while also permitting manual operability, making it ideal for single-operator productions. Additionally, by pairing the new lens with the new ZSG-C10 dedicated grip (sold separately), it gives users enhanced flexibility for shoulder mounted use and rig use, thereby accommodating diverse shooting styles beyond tripods or hand-held use.
The new CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S brings together Canon’s best-in-class optical technology to deliver high level imaging performance supporting use with 4K cameras, maintaining 4K-resolution across the entire zoom range as well as from image edge to edge. The cinema lens has an image stabilising mechanism that prevents loss of focus while zooming. Coupled with its shift-type optical vibration isolator zoom mechanism that minimises lens shake, users can achieve smooth video capture in high-definition and a rich sense of realism, fostering impressive visual expression.
Pricing and availability
The CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S and ZSG-C10 dedicated grip will be available in market from November 2016. Pricing will be advised at a later date.
