About Canon CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 COMPACT-SERVO Cinema Zoom Lens (EF Mount)

A revolution in video production.  The Canon CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S is a new compact Cinema EOS lens with cine-servo functionality. This sits below cine-servo lenses and above EF lenses at an affordable price point.
The ergonomic design of the Canon CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S supports handheld shooting and is ideal for shooting documentaries, interviews, weddings, indie movies and corporate videos.
The lens strengthens Canon’s line of cine-servo lenses, following in the footsteps of the CN7x17 and CN20x50.
The lens includes a servo engine which is powered via EF mount connectors. For increased versatility, users can use the optional ZSG-C10, a dedicated zoom grip, ideal for use with hand held rigs.
Camera-to-lens communication is provided via EF mount, bringing powerful features such as chromatic aberration compensation and peripheral illumination correction. The EF mount also enables a number of other powerful features, including metadata acquisition and remote control options for fully automatic or manual control

Professional cine optics for videographers
From movies and documentaries to weddings and corporate videos, the Canon CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S (Compact Cine Servo Lens) is designed to answer the needs of professional shooters and advanced amateur videographers. With a powerful 4.4x optical zoom and 18-80mm focal length, the lens is an ideal all-purpose lens, weighing only 1.2kg but including precise servo zoom and focus functions for a smooth professional look and feel in all your shots.

All the advantages of EF mount compatibility
Designed to work with Canon EF mount DSLRs and compatible detachable lens video cameras, the Canon Compact Cine Servo Lens takes advantage of the huge range of Canon EF mount functions, including 3 modes of image stabilisation and super-fast autofocusing. Powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF means you can quickly and accurately focus with a single push of a button, while continuous AF lets you track your subject without losing focus. Peripheral illumination correction helps maintain an even illumination across the entire frame, while the lens and camera will remain in constant communication, from lens metadata acquisition for easier post-processing to even allowing you to select a ‘T’ number or ‘F’ number on your camera’s display.

4K-quality optics
The Canon Compact Cine Servo Lens is built to be future-proof. Canon engineers have ensured its resolving power is accurate, from the middle of the lens to the edge, while its modulation transfer function (MTF) has been optimised for the requirements of 4K cameras. With reduced chromatic aberration and colour balance matched perfectly to other Canon Cinema EOS lenses, the Canon Compact Cine Servo Lens provides incredible image quality whether you’re shooting in 4K or HD.

Optional ZSG-C10 detachable servo grip
Designed exclusively for the Compact Cine Servo Lens, the optional Canon ZSG-C10 zoom grip creates whole new shooting opportunities, allowing super-smooth remote activation of the zoom servo and one-shot AF. Connected to the lens body via a 20-pin cable, the ZSG-C10 can be operated while mounted on the lens barrel (for comfortable shoulder-mounted shooting), or detached from the lens and used handheld. The ZSG-C10 includes an easy-to-control rocker switch, start/stop record button, one-shot autofocus button and an adjustable grip angle for optimal comfort.

  • Canon EF mount compatibility provides support for fast and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS auto focus, camera-to-lens servo power supply, automatic lens metadata acquisition for easy post-processing, and lens functions such as peripheral illumination correction.
  • Purpose-built video lens with a focal length of 18-80mm and optical zoom of 4.4x
