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.
Definitely. I could not imagine investing in RF glass for myself, but for stills shooters investing in Canon mirrorless it makes sense, but they can not except their lenses to be used on other cameras the same way EF-glass is.
The funny thing is that I don't think the concept of a battery grip with a fan in it is that stupid. Wouldn't it be perfect if the camera had a battery grip with an extra processing chip and fan so you could capture ProRes or RAW? Get the chip away from the sensor and have a fan cooling it? With that, you could pack the camera with great stills features and ok video, and for those who want's excellent video could buy a battery grip for that functionality? I would buy into it...
