Canon has announced the CINE-SERVO 25-250mm T2.95-3.9 (CN10x25 IAS S) lens. Canon designed the 25-250mm to be a versatile lens that can be used for wildlife, documentary, broadcast, and cinema applications.

Yeah it looks like a great option.

I read in FD Times interview with DP Steve Holleran of Boneyard Ballet that he used it handheld on the last shoot of the day as light was fading specifically so he could move fast and get as much coverage as possible.

I've worked with the very similar Canon 17-120 a bunch of times and it's a solid lens for fast-paced work, so now it seems we get that same outer housing with internals close to the ones from the phenomenal Canon 30-300. This could be exciting!

This lens is impressive in so many ways(price, size/weight, specs).  This will pair so well with the 17-120 and be very in-demand.  I spoke to my sales rep a few days after the announcement and they were already getting calls from guys wanting to order it, even in this current climate of uncertainty.

 

Now to get greedy...  What if they could give us a 12-120 w/1.5x for the same size/weight, aperture and price.

If I wanted to get greedy, personally, I'd love a faster and constant aperture. This T2.95 which falls off to a very sad T3.95 is just not enough for me. I've used the 17-120 on AMIRA a bunch and I had to increase ISO way too many times.

 

I know it's a lot to ask for, but as I said, I'm just being greedy here. 😛

Handy theyve got the 1.5 extender in it to cover full frame. Shame that aperture closes down a bit but at least if you're on a C500MKII doing a reality show and want to knock off a great big wide, you can go between S35 and full frame without needing to swap the lens.

Well, that may depend on what your definition of  'great big wide' is.  25 in s35 isn't wide, especially in that sense, and 37.5 in "FF" is  the same angle of view.  Even with the 17-120, it's really not wide enough, a lot of times, to get that big wide scenic/establisher. We'd really need 11-12 in s35 to get us the big wide we're used to from our 2/3" ENG lenses.
