Is Canon about to launch one other hybrid ‘Z’ lens?


Rumor has it Canon may very well be about to develop its line-up of video-focussed ‘Z’ lenses. At present there’s only a single such lens – the RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z – however it may quickly obtain a stablemate: an RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Z.

Canon has beforehand instructed us that the RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z is meant to be the primary in a variety of recent hybrid lenses, so it is smart that it might be joined by different ‘Z’ lenses sooner slightly than later. The Z suffix stands for ‘energy zoom’, indicating the lens’ compatibility with Canon’s PowerZoom adapters; itself an support for attaining smoother zooming throughout video recording. One other function that units Canon’s ‘Z’ lens aside is its clickless aperture ring, which offers stepless aperture adjustment, although it solely works when capturing video.
