Exciting! Can't wait to see even more super 35 servo zooms in the future. I hope this trend doesn't stop anytime soon.

Probably worth more than my car, but what good lens isn't?

Looks great, shame about the price.

At that price you do have to wonder who they're marketing at? Surely any person or company with that much spare cash would just by a dedicated HD shoulder mounted camera. Also I cant imagine many Alexa/Epic shoots need a servo zoom.

I could see a similar L series lens with servo for a few grand could be very popular.

Yeah, i was just going to say, "Nice. But how much is it going to be? $50,000,000.00?"

One day when they figure out a way to produce that lens between 4-7k they'll sell thousands, 38k is just absurd, looking at selling a few hundred at best?

To be fair, I guess, even Canon's Cinema EOS lenses are similarly priced.

I saw the article and immediately thought... I will never be able to afford this haha

Amazing piece of glass to shoot with I'm sure.

For a S35 PL Mount lens that covers 5k and has a SERVO?

That is cheap.

It may not be for YOU, but there are plenty of DPs and rental houses that will snap these up at that price.

Re: Fujinonís New 19-90 T2.9 Cabrio 35PL Zoom Lens with SERVO.

Matt is absolutely correct, of course -- the pricing is right where it should be for a
PL-mount servo zoom lens with UHD resolution. In fact, at that price it's a bargain.

Canon has a pair of similar PL-mount lenses, a wide zoom 14.5-60mm T2.6 and
a telephoto zoom 30-300mm T2.95-3.7, and they're even more expensive than this
one, and they don't have servo zooms. It's nice to see Fuji step up the game by
putting on a zoom motor and making the price quite competitive with Canon.

I've edited the OP to include the official press release on DVi. That link is:

I am actually in the middle of preproduction for a pilot for Discovery Channel.

We will be shooting it on my Scarlet and this lens would be PERFECT for it.

Thats the kind of form factor where this lens would thrive I'm sure. Mounted to a scarlet, C300 sort of cam. If I had the money for this kind of lens though, I would just wait and throw it on an FS700 and call it a day...

Lenses like this are what rental houses are for.

There are people shooting documentaries on the Alexa and the RED cameras. It could also be useful on TV drama, with their tight schedules and love of hand held cameras.

The Canon's might be more expensive, but they are Full Frame lenses and this is reflected in their price and size.
