    I'm very enthusiastic about the possibilities of the new announced Canon 18-80mm f4 Zoom lens with features ideal for ENG work.

    Could this lens be included in the list of lenses supported by the Canon electronic mount AND FoolControl ?!

    I really think this lens is ideal for my field of work if I could use it with my Epic-X

    +1 this looks pretty nice

    Video says pricing at about $5500

    F4 t4.4 but with new helium sensor probably not much of a drawback

    Seems lika a nice range that is extremely cheap as well. Is it still not support by Red?
    Cool that it has stabilisation as well.

    I think 7.5k. Image circle si smaller than canon 50 1000 and it covers 7.5. Just a estimate so I may be wrong

    Aaron, so the lens it is not supported? first time someone answers the question ! Let's hope someone in the Red Team acknowledges this lens and integrates it into the new firmware, all the way down to the Red Scarlet-X please!

    The camera sees the lens as a Canon 18-80, reports focal length & distance, and powers the servo. Just doesn't support electronic focus or I.S.
