Outstanding optical performance

Designed to perform in challenging high-end cinema productions, the CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S/SP is a EF/PL mount lens for Super 35mm format with unprecedented optical performance.

It achieves sharp, consistent images throughout its zoom range due to its advanced optical design with fluorite and large aspherical lens elements. The CN-E15.5-47mm has a unique optical design with significantly minimized focus breathing which enables a new level of precision in focus pulls. It also has a remarkably broad rotation angle of Focus 300°/ Zoom 160° which realizes high accuracy in operating the lens.

This lens also incorporates geared inner focusing to minimize focus-induced changes in the angle of view, while 11-blade aperture diaphragms ensure beautiful bokeh. Innovative glass construction counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature-induced marking discrepancies.



The CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S/SP lens has markings on angled surfaces on both sides of the barrel, making it easy to read settings from behind, or from either side of the camera. Focus markings can even be switched from standard labeling to metric, depending on production need. This lens is equipped with control rings maintain the proper amount of resistance with consistent operating torque, and a covered flange-back adjustment mechanism to meet numerous production application needs.

Furthermore, computer simulation based on the ISO Color Contribution Index (CCI) is employed to achieve a tight color reproduction match between all the Canon PL mount lenses.
