Nice overview of the new Canon COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm T4.4 EF

I played with this lens at NAB and was really impressed. The good news is this is the first in a series that Canon is developing. It looks like the price will be $5250. Yes it’s a lot of money but much less than a Canon cine lens and has so many feature they don’t. It’s a good thing I don’t have a C100 MKII or a C300 MKII because I would want this lens now.
