Fujion Cine Lens Lineage
Fujinon Cine Lenses are used to shoot movies, commercials, and television dramas all over the world. These lenses habe world-class performance and quality ingrained in their DNA. Now, with the debut of the MK Lens series, that heritage finds a new form. Fujifilm has developed a new pair of cinema lenses to resolve the less-than-satisfactory aspects of DSLR lenses when used for cine applications. These new lenses produce the high performance and high-quality images demanded by newly developing production markets such as movie distribution services, independant film production, and wedding videos.
Suppress focus shifts while zoooming
With a conventional DSLR lens, the focal point shifts while zooming. This means you have to refocus the lens each time you change the angle of view. MK Lenses suppress focus shifts by driving the front focus group and the zoom group independently. Since MK Lenses supress optical and mechanically, it also eliminates the time lags you get with electric controls.
Suppress lens breathing
When you are focusing with a conventional DSLR lens, you may notice an unnatural change in the angle of view – making it look as if you are zooming. This effect, called “lens breathing”, is suppressed thank to MK Lenses front inner focus system. This allows you smooth and comfortable focusing of dramatically important scenes.
Suppress optical axis shifts while zooming
In a conventional DSLR lens, optical axis shifts occur while zooming, causing the lens toskew off center from the subject. MK Lenses suppress such skewing by adopting assemly technologies proven in FUJINON Cine Lenses. This lets you shoot a composition just the way you intended.
200° focus rotation angle
MK Lenses feature a 200° focus rotation angle – more than double that of a typical DSLR lens. This allows you to focus on images with shallow depths of field, which requires high accuracy.
Fully manual operation with three mechanical lens rings
MK Lenses are equipped with three independently operated mechanical lens rings for focus, zoom, and iris. Because you can adjust the zoom, focus, and iris via fully manual mechanismus, you can operate the camera intuitively withou the time lags you get with electric controls.
0.8M standardized gear pitch
Each of the three operating rings (focus, zoom, and iris) features an identical 0.8M gear pitch – the same as on all FUJINON Cine Lenses. This allows you to use follow-focus and other standard cine accessories.
This iris ring features a seamless mechanism that gives you greater precision when adjusting exposure. It operates wit
