Cinescopophilia: Canon Launches 17×6.2 B4 Mount EFP Lens

Canon HJ17ex6.2B is the Premium Standard Broadcast Lens.

Fuji has a 6.3×16 lens, so you know what that means, right?  I really like this combination.  It lets you get wide enough that if you’re in a scrum, you can have enough chin room to slide a couple of lines of Chyron underneath, but the telephoto doesn’t leave you hanging like going to something as wide as their 4.3.  If you can have only one, this is a great all around lens.  Like I said last week when Fuji launched their new lens for NAB, each year they take the ratios juuuuuust a bit further.
