The Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 is a lightweight cine-style zoom for Canon RF-mount cameras and Super 35 camcorders. Key features include:
Fast T2.9 aperture
Parfocal with minimum focus breathing
Geared controls for focus, iris and zoom
Fixed Canon RF mount
Featherweight. The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up the Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 for Canon RF is that it’s beyond light. It weighs in at just north of two pounds, which means you can mount it without an additional lens support. Its light weight also makes it a prime candidate for gimbal work.
High-Quality Optics. The lens features a fast T2.9 clickless aperture, controlled by nine rounded blades. It’s color matched to compliment Fujinon’s higher-end offerings, and the 28.5mm diameter image circle covers up to a Super 35 sensor format.
Cine Style. The MK18-55mm is truly a cinema lens with a full cinema feature set. The focus, iris, and zoom rings all have industry-standard 0.8 gears. The focus ring gives you precise control over pulls and follows with 200° of rotation, while the iris ring is de-clicked with a smooth action allowing you adjust exposure mid-shot. This lens has a short flange focal distance, but it allows flange focal distance adjustment so you can fine tune it to the camera you’re using. It offers a macro-focus mode that shortens the minimum focusing distance from roughly four feet to just under three feet.
Parfocal. This term is thrown around a good bit, but many lenses that claim it are not truly parfocal. Instead, they’re close enough that many won’t notice. Well not this one. The MK18-55mm is a true parfocal lens. Fujin
We recommend using a rail support system and lens support. We have provided links to our universal baseplates in the Recommended section on the right-hand side of this page; however, we also carry camera specific kits. Those can be found in the Recommended column on camcorder pages. When in doubt, please contact us.
Not only does this lens come equipped with focus gears, it also comes with geared iris and zoom controls. Each gear features an industry-standard 0.8 pitch.
This lens will cover full-frame or Super 35 sized sensor cameras and camcorders.
When shooting in bright sunlight and stopped down past T11, you may see a colored spot in your footage. That’s the sun reflecting off the sensor and then back off the rear element, causing an unwanted internal reflection. It’s just a part of the design. It’s best to shoot at larger apertures and use an ND filter instead.
Yes. This lens is truly parfocal.
This rental doesn’t include the screw-in zoom lever. If you’d like it, please request it in the Special Instructions box during checkout.
