The Canon CN-E Compact-Servo 18-80mm T4.4 L IS EF is a compact cinema servo zoom lens for Canon branded EF-mount cameras. Key features include:

  • Cinema-grade optics

  • Servo control for zoom, focus, and iris

  • Optimized for Canon’s Cinema EOS Camcorder lineup

  • ZSG-C10 Zoom Grip Included

CN-E Build Quality. The 18-80 features cinema-grade optics that include parfocal design to maintain focus during zoom, minimized breathing, and color-matching accuracy to current CN-E lenses. A rounded 9-blade aperture makes for pleasing bokeh.

EF Convenience. The Compact Servo brings autofocus and image stabilization capabilities to a Canon Cinema lens. Optimized to work with the C100 Mark II EFC300 Mark II EFC200, and C700, taking full advantage of each of the camera’s dual-pixel autofocus technology.

Super 35 Sensor Coverage. The Canon 18-80mm T4.4 is designed specifically for image sensors measuring 26.2 × 13.8mm and smaller. That makes it perfect for Super-35mm/APS-C crop-sensor C-series cameras, offering a focal length roughly equivalent to 29-128mm.

Servos. The 18-80 offers servo control for zoom focus and iris, with power being supplied by compatible Canon EF cinema cameras.

ZSG-C10 Zoom Grip Included. This grip offers rocker control over zoom, as well as buttons for one-shot auto focus, and recording start-stop. It features a rosette adapter and interfaces with the Compact-Servo’s drive via a single cable, meaning it can be either mounted directly to the lens itself or used detached from the lens like in place of a handgrip in a shoulder mount configuration.

Q & A

  • Is this lens compatible with the Canon EOS C500 Mark II?
    • Yes! Although the C500M2 will need to be configured for cropped Super 35 sensor mode to avoid vignetting, all electronic functions of this lens are compatible with the Canon C500M2 when a standard EF or EF-C mount is installed.

    • Need to find the C500M2’s sensor mode option? Simply navigate to Menu>Recording/Media Setup and select “Super 35 (cropped)” as your sensor mode setting.

  • Does this lens work with any EF mount camera/camcorder?
    • No. This lens was designed specifically for, and is only fully compatible with the C100 Mark II EFC300 Mark II EFC200, and C700. This lens is not compatible with Canon’s DSLR cameras.

    • Many third-party camera and adapter manufacturers have released firmware updates to improve communication between their product and Canon’s CN-E servo lenses but many functions remain limited. With that said, we cannot guarantee the performance of this lens if used with cameras other than the Canon cameras linked above and do not recommend using it with adapters of any kind.

  • Is the zoom grip included with the rental of the lens?
    • Yes, we include the ZSG-C10 Zoom Grip with the rental of the lens.
