New HD lenses from Canon

Am I correct to assume that the KT20x5B KRS Lens for 1/3-Inch CCD will work on an HD100?

http://www.ibcnews.com/articles/view...e.jsp?id=59814


"Also new for IBC 2006, the KT20x5B KRS HDgc lens features a 20X zoom ratio and a wide angle of 5mm for a focal length of 5–100mm; it is designed for portable HD cameras using 1/3-inch imagers and is 16:9 and 4:3 switchable. Like the KH20x6.4 KRS 1/2-inch lens, the KT20x5B KRS ( and the KJ20x8.5B KRS lens for 2/3-inch imager cameras) includes Canon’s Shuttle Shot feature."

Yes. Any lens that is 1/3", B4 (bayonet) mount will work with the HD100 without the need for an adapter.
This particular lens you mention has been designed for HD 1/3" sensors and seems quite promising from what I've read.

Good article, more so since we are also looking at a better lens to replace the supplied one. Does anyone know the price range for the Canon lens?

Was there any word on price? I assume it also fits the H1; is that correct?

Sorry but no that is not correct. It will not fit the XL H1.

Keep in mind that the XL H1 has an XL lens mount, not a B4 lens mount. These two types of lens mounts are not compatible with each other. Plus, the non-removeable, built-in grip handle on the XL H1 prevents the mounting of a standard broadcast video lens with its own grip handle, since two objects (that is, two grip handles) cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

I'd have to guess this new lens would be at least in the $10k range.

The 1/2 KH 19x6.7 KAS is $7k at B&H. Do you think this KT 20x5B KRS would be more or less?
