Available in Arri PL or Canon EF mount.

Weighing just 2.2kg, the Canon CN-E 15.5-47mm compact zoom is a versatile wide-angle cine zoom. Designed to provide enough resolution for 4K cameras, it's suitable for use on a wide variety of digital motion cameras. With a minimum focus distance of just 0.5m, this is a lens you can use in tight working conditions.

Naturally, this is a lens designed for motion. Unlike many modern zoom lenses designed for stills use, this is a parfocal zoom - it holds focus throughout its zoom range. The 11 blade iris ensures a pleasing treatment of out of focus parts of a scene, and the generous and highly visible lens marks help you nail critical focusing.

The 114mm front diameter is a common industry size and ensures compatibility with a wide range of matte boxes and other lens accessories.

The CN-E 15.5-47mm covers Super 35mm (Arri Alexa/Amira, Canon C100/C300/C500, Sony F5, Sony F55 etc), APS-C (Canon 7D etc) and RED 5K and Dragon sized sensors. It does not cover 35mm full frame sensors found in the likes of Canon 5D mark IV DSLR cameras.
