At NAB, Canon announced the launch of its latest compact cine-servo lens and revealed that it will now add Canon Log recording capabilities to the EOS 5D Mark IV 


The CN-E70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS S  lens has a focal length of 70-200mm in the Super 35 image circle. The lens joins the CN-E18-80mm launched in 2016 and completes Canon’s compact cine-servo lens line-up.


It has a native optical zoom of 2.8x, precise focus and servo zoom functions. It will function with Canon EF mount DSLRs and compatible detachable lens video cameras. It also has a wide range of mount functions and super-fast autofocusing (AF). Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables a quick and accurate focus via a single button push (one-shot AF), while continuous AF allows for a subject to be tracked with no loss of focus.


Here are the key features from Canon


High-quality features, low price tag

Seamless EF-mount integration

Engaging bokeh effect

Eliminate focus breathing

Superb 4K performance

Convenient servo grip


The UK RRP is £6,099  and it should be available later in the year.

Canon also announced that because of customer demand, it will add Canon Log recording capabilities to the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera.


Current EOS 5D Mark IV camera owners can have the Canon Log feature upgrade installed for $99 at Canon service centres from July. The camera will also be available for sale (body only) with the feature upgrade pre-installed starting in July, with an estimated price of $3,599.


Canon Log uses the image sensor’s characteristics in a way that allows for a wide dynamic range, minimal loss of detail in shadows and highlight areas and an increased range of choices when colour grading.
