Canon 8-64mm T2.4
The Canon 8-64mm T2.4 is a vintage Super 16mm cinema zoom. This rental is sharp, particularly at T2.8 and beyond, with a close-focus of just 22″. Focus breathing is minimal, particularly on the wider end. It has a six-bladed iris and holds contrast moderately, typical of vintage zooms. The Canon 8-64mm T2.4 is a very versatile 8-64mm (16-128mm in Super 35mm equivalent) 8x focal range combined with excellent speed, making it perfect for documentary-style shoots. It’s also relatively compact and lightweight at under 5 pounds. Operating handheld all day is a reasonable request with the Canon 8-64mm. The lens is designed for Super 16 film cameras, but will fit many m43 cameras and cameras with crop modes when used with a PL mount or PL adapter.
The Canon 8-64mm T2.4 zoom lens was made famous by its use on the film The Hurt Locker. If you’re looking for a versatile PL-mount zoom lens, we also recommend considering the Angenieux EZ series.
