Last year in our booth at NAB, AbelCine showed a prototype of the new Canon CN-E 14.5-60 T2.6 Cinema Zoom lens. We were very impressed at the time, and in recent private testing, were even more pleased. Now that the release version is shipping, AbelCine’s optical technicians have put this new PL-mount zoom through a battery of evaluations, and we are very excited by the results. Canon states that the lens is “designed to fulfill contemporary 4K production standards,” and in our testing we found that the 14.5-60 performs right up there with the finest lenses available today.

In this video, I discuss some of the key features of this lens and explain how it performed when our technicians tested it using our optical calibration equipment.

Stay tuned for a report on the Canon 14.5-60′s sister lens, the Canon CN-E 30-300 T2.95-3.7 Cinema Zoom, due to ship in the coming weeks.
