 Fujinon SK 35-700mm zoom lens

Fuji recently held a special demo event at a major rental company to showcase its unique Fujinon SK 35-700mm zoom lens. Originally developed for 8K applications, this is currently the only native PL mount box lens, which offers some incredible creative opportunities such as bringing the much desired cinema look to sports and music events. The lens packs an impressive 20x zoom and has a built-in 1.4x extender, which can extend the coverage even more. And thanks to this feature the lens is transformed into a Super35 lens that can be used with the ARRI Amira LIVE and Sony VENICE.
