std lens

HI,

I am comparing different HDV cams at the moment.

With Z7 std. lens: Does the f-stop change when in tele mode? With what f-stop does it start in WIDE?

thanks!

It starts at 1.6 at wide and goes to 2.0 at 12x tele...

Ilya nails the big plus point of the Z7's Zeiss lens, and it's what makes this camera so much better in real-world filming situations when light levels drop. That near 2/3rds of a stop lost due to ramping is the best in the business at the price.
