In what can be interpreted as a potential precursor to a 4K camera announcement, Canon introduced two new PL-mount cine zoom lenses. These lenses will not be priced for the faint of heart, but rather for the professional RED, Arri or Sony shooter. Both the Canon FK14.5-60 wide-angle cine zoom and the Canon FK30-300 telephoto cine zoom feature “advanced glass materials, exotic new optical coatings, and new computer-design techniques”. Canon building their own 4K camera to use with these lenses is purely speculation, but wouldn’t come as a surprise.
