: I told you so, now more NAB Show tidbits - Fujinon brings affordable PL Lenses
Well, don't let the proximity to NAB keep you from the latest info.
It seems that my friends at Fujinon have finally taken the wraps off their latest endeavor with the release of the ZK4.7x19 19-90mm T2.9 Cabrio Compact Cinema Zoom.
This PL mount with a 19-90 zoom range brings ENG style handling to PL mount cameras, with full coverage of the S35 sensor size, this lens will cover everthing up to and including Epic in 5K, Alexa in 4:3 anamorphic and even the Phantom Flex Sensor up to 2560 px and it include the motor and the ability to pass LDS/iData Lens Metadata to the camera system.
This is the First PL mount ENG style lens meant for everyone, shipping in July at an estimated $38K USD this will be a hot seller for those people in sports, eng and doc style camera setups to give shooters a wider range of control and zoom in a single affordable package.
