8K Optical Performance with Canon Cinema EOS Color Science

Rated for 8K HDR image capture the lenses produce amazing color rendition and detail, with sharp resolution from the center to the outer edges. An 11-blade iris creates soft, beautiful light rays and stunning depth-of-field falloff. The lenses render the beautiful and warm color tones synonymous with Canon’s cinema lens family.

Canon’s advanced optical technology and lens coatings have combined to achieve 8K optical performance. Various types of aberrations have been corrected to achieve beautiful imagery from the center of the image out to all edges.

All of Canon’s cinema lenses have been designed with a consistent warm color balance that expresses skin tones beautifully, making them ideal for capturing subject textures.  Color reproduction is also consistent when lenses are interchanged, which can help minimize corrections in post.

HDR video offers an expanded tonal range that represents the visual expression close to its natural image.  Our 8K-compatible chromatic aberration correction which can reduce color bleeding, and the light-shielding design and optimized coatings reduce ghosting and flaring.

The inner focus system can reduce focus breathing, giving great stability when framing a shot.

The 11-blade iris gives the lenses a natural bokeh effect that is almost circular from maximum to the minimum aperture.  The odd number of blades diffuse the glow of high luminance subjects for softer imaging.

We do not sell Grey Market Products

What is Grey Market?

Products that are imported and sold by anyone other than USA Authorized dealers are considered Grey Market products. These are often genuine products that were intended for other countries; therefore, they may not meet the manufacturer's specifications for US products or perform as expected, and they are not covered by a USA manufacture warranty or eligible for a USA repair service.

What are the differences as far as a customer is concerned?

In most cases, the main difference between a "USA" and a "Grey Market," or imported product is the cost of the item and the terms of the item’s warranty coverage. The products themselves are otherwise identical. As a rule, "Grey Market" items typically cost less than their USA counterparts. "Grey market" products never qualify for manufacturer's rebate programs and can not be price matched. If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-333-4280.
