Canon Flex Zooms

Canon Flex Zooms

The Canon Flex Zooms, comprised of  the CN-E 20-50mm and the CN-E 45-135mm are full-frame cinema zoom lenses designed to match the rest of the  CN-E lenses. These lenses capture a warm look with natural skin tones and accurate colors for  natural-looking images with low flaring and ghosting. They both have a fast T2.4 aperture for capturing low-light scenes with ease and an 11-blade iris for soft, cinematic bokeh. These zooms have a PL mount and work with standard matte boxes and accessories.

Additionally, the rear optics of these lenses can be swapped to cover a Super 35 sensor, giving a slight boost to speed (T1.7) and slightly widening the focal length (see table below). All other aspects of the lenses remain the same, giving you the same great color and image quality on a wider variety of cameras.
