Canon 18-80 is a lightweight but versatile Cine Zoom lens. Not the fastest at T4.4 but with an 18-80 zoom range it covers a decent amount for most shoots. Often hired as an alternative to having both a 16-35 and a 24-70, as negates the need for lens changes on the shoot saving a considerable amount of time over the course of the day.
With it’s servo zoom it also allows very quick zoom with a familar rocker which is powered through the EF mount, making it great for quickly reframing on those jobs where it’s very run-and-gun.
It’s a Super-35mm lens so please consider it will not cover a full frame sensor but it’s perfect for Super-35mm cameras such as the Canon C300ii and Sony FS7 (with EF adapter).
Canon EF mount compatibility provides support for fast and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS auto focus, camera-to-lens servo power supply, automatic lens metadata acquisition for easy post-processing, and lens functions such as peripheral illumination correction.
