Canon CN-E20mm T1.5 L F

A super-fast 20mm cine-prime 4k lens for Super35mm and full frame digital cinema cameras

The new CN-E20mm T1.5 L F, a wide-angle lens perfect for high-quality cinematic productions. Offering outstanding optical capability and superior lens build, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F enables the straightforward capture of stunning 4K images and enhances the current cine prime lens range.

A Super-Fast Cine-Prime Lens with Optical Quality Beyond 4K
Employing anomalous dispersion glass that's effective in reducing chromatic aberration, plus large-diameter aspherical lenses, this stunning 20mm cine-prime achieves high-resolution 4K imaging right across the frame.

Outstanding Optical Performance
The CN-E20mm T1.5 L F boasts a large diameter aspheric lens and low dispersion glass, eliminating spherical aberration and other optical phenomena; delivering an extremely clear image. With a bright T No of 1.5, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F captures stunning 4K footage in low light, perfect for nature documentaries. To enhance creative shooting, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F’s bright T No and 11-blade iris produces natural blur effects, enabling a three-dimensional bokeh effect with a deeper depth of field. Equipped with reduced focus breathing, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F delivers pin-sharp focusing for stable shooting.

Highly Compatible, Durable and Operable
Compatible with the newly launched EOS C700 FF, as well as the EOS-1D C and other full frame cameras, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F enables users to capture premium-quality footage with confidence. The CN-E20mm T1.5 L F has an image circle that covers full frame 35mm, to expand shooting opportunities. The built-in rubber ring at the mount connector guarantees a drip-proof structure, durable enough for any production which involves challenging shooting environments. The CN-E20mm T1.5 L F is consistent with the rest of the Canon EF Cinema lens range, offering Canon fans familiarity with the gear position, front diameter, total length and rotation angle. New phosphorescent front barrel indicators provide greater visibility in low light conditions, while the focus ring displays numbers on both the left and right side of the lens, to allow the operator to check the distance indicator from either side. Creating just the right amount of resistance when focusing, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F has a professional grade, 300° focus rotation angle. By harmonising the exposure and white balance of natural lighting, the CN-E20mm T1.5 L F ensures quality footage from every shot. The lens information displayed on the viewfinder, allows users to easily pinpoint footage, streamlining the editing and post production process.

Supports Super35mm and Full Frame
The lens offers widespread lens compatibility options for professional filmmakers using Super35mm full-frame, APS-C and APS-H cameras.

11-Blade Iris for Natural Bokeh
An aperture diaphragm with 11 leaves creates gentle, attractive blurring or ‘bokeh’ for cinematographic effects and created deeper, richer depth-of-field.

Superb Operability and Reliability
The lens offers a sturdy build that’s user-friendly for demanding productions. It features focus and iris markings that are engraved on angled surfaces for improved readability.

Excellent Communication and Integration
The lens communicates to the camera data relating to ambient light, chromatic aberration, and other image information and can be used with movie industry accessories.
