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

Does this lens work with non-Canon branded EF mount cameras/camcorders?

  • No. While it may physically mount to a camera or adapter, this lens was designed specifically for the Canon Cinema EOS Camcorder line. Canon’s DSLR line and third-party manufacturers may be able to improve compatibility through firmware updates but full functionality is unlikely. With that said, we do not recommend the Canon CN-E Compact Servo lenses for use with any camera outside of the Canon C-Series line-up.

Are there any performance limitations with EF-mount Cinema EOS cameras?

  • As of July 2018, only the C100 Mark IIC200C300 Mark II, and C700 EF fully support the CN-E 18-80mm with autofocus, image stabilization, and servo zoom.

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.
