The MKX18-55mmT2.9 and MKX50-135mmT2.9 are dedicated cinema lenses for professional photographers who use our digital camera X Series allow for the creation of high quality videos. By incorporating the benefits of short flange focal distance of X Mount into optical design to the maximum extent, the lenses are both lightweight, at about 1 kg, and provide high optical performance while accommodating shooting with a limited number of people. They eliminate the need for exchanging lenses and adjusting optical axis by covering the entire normal focal length with two lenses (a standard zoom lens with focal distance of 27–84 mm and a standard telephoto zoom lens with a focal length of 76–206 mm). These bright lenses achieve T2.9* across their entire zoom range, eliminating the need to readjust the lighting and contributing to shortening the shooting time. We aimed for a design that users can operate securely with blind operation and easily identify the lenses and also read the information on the lenses easily to avoid mistaking them for another lens. *T-stop value is an index that indicates brightness of a lens based on its F-stop value and transmission rate. The smaller the value, the greater the amount of light that the lens transmits.

.

.

The UA46 series is the 4K-compatible fast telephoto broadcast lens offers the world’s largest zoom ratio of 46× for portable-type lenses as well as superior maneuverability. We developed the lens to respond to the strong needs of photographers who still want to shoot high-resolution super-telephoto photos full of a “you-are-there” feel from a moving vehicle that they are in while aerial shooting using drones is increasingly popular. With a small body of 358 mm in length, it enables super-telephoto shooting of 570 mm and an M.O.D. (minimum object distance) of 2.8 m. We newly developed an ultra-high precision, large-diameter, aspherical lens that suppresses, to the utmost degree, the image periphery distortion and resolution loss that readily occurs with wide angle photography. This enables high-resolution shooting across the entire zooming range. We aimed for a design that offers high operability that enables users to operate it easily while they are moving in a vehicle with frequent jolts and vibrations and highly visible description on the lens.
