At NAB 2023, Laowa was showing its new Ranger 28-75mm & 75-180mm T2.9 Full Frame Cine Zooms. These look to be very compact cine zooms that would be suitable for documentary shooters using full frame cameras.
The build quality was nice and the operation of the focus, iris, and zoom was smooth.
With a constant T2.9 aperture I was surprised at just how small these lenses were given their focal range. The lenses will come natively in PL mount, with a user interchange Canon EF mount.
The lenses have a 77cm front filter diameter and a 80mm front diameter. They are claimed to be par focal and they have a back focus adjustment built into the lens.
Price & Availability
There is currently no information about pricing, but Laowa told us that they would be competitively priced.
