OWNER NOTES

Great lens! Very sharp, smooth through full zoom and focus range. Very snappy and quite autofocus.

I'm a full-time DP and have used this lens on a number of personal and commercial projects.

Du-All Camera took a look at this lens a few months ago and said it's a great example of this model of lens. It's staying sharp through the whole range and looks great!

"The Three Wise Men." Haha! This is the standard/workhorse lens kit that everyone uses for a lot of jobs. I've used these for feature docs, corporate work, jobs for Vox, Vice, Comedy Central, MTV, Bustle, and others.

I bought these lenses new and have always been the only owner. Super clean and well-cared for. All lenses are an f/2.8--great matching between all lenses for multi-cam setups.

I also have a new MetaBones Canon EF to Sony E adapter listed if you're planning on using this with an FS7/FS5/A7xx

John is an awesome person to rent from. He went out of his way to help get me the equipment, which worked beautifully and saved me in a pinch. Would definitely rent from him again.

Would rent again!
