What an exciting release! Yes the Canon R5 and R6 are cool and all but I find these two new DZOFILM zooms for S35 format very interesting. The sample footage looks pretty good. These are the least expensive option by $2000 less than the MK's. For the budget filmmaker and production company these will really shine. Maybe they will punch above their weight?
Talking about zoom lenses for owner operators, these look killer for the price!
Sure, they are not of course Angies or Fujinons, so they won't rent good or be sought after. But if you're like me, a small production company and owner of a bit of kit, they might do the job perfectly. They will probably be very clean, sharp, but with a nice bokeh (16 aputure blades) and 2.8 and parfocal.
The pair of them with a range of 20-125 all together covers pretty much everything I need. Maybe need a 11-16ish for wide shots.
All that for 4,499 USD!
What a time to be alive.
Looks like @Erik Naso is reviewing them, looking forward to it!
@Australian Image (Ray) Atomos said today you can record up to 4K 60p out of the HDMI into a Ninja V in either Prores or DNX.
Personally I'm wouldnt be a big fan of strapping a big external monitor/recorder to an R5 if I got one, the appeal of it to me is that it's small.
