Among all the buzz that Sony caused with the announcement of their new QX-series of lens cameras, this Canon announcement went by almost completely unnoticed. Expanding their lineup of cinema prime lenses, Canon today announced the CN-E 35mm T1.5 cinema prime lens. As with all cinema primes, the 35mm T1.5 is manufactured to the highest standards, and promises outstanding sharpness for both HD and UHD (4K) video. It comes in Canon EF mount, and can thus be used with all EF-system cameras. However, being aimed at the professional videographer, it is intended for use with cameras such as the EOS 1D C, and the EOS C-series of cinema cameras. And as with all cine gear, the 35mm T1.5 comes with a rather hefty price tag of US-$ 5,200. More info can be found on Canon’s website.
