Budget cine lens maker DZOFilm has announced a price increase for their Vespid cine primes and Pictor Zoom lenses effective July, 31st 2021.
The DZOFilm Vespid cine primes include a total of 7 primes: 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 125mm (all at T2.1), and a 90mm T2.8 Macro lens. Furthermore, the Vespid cine primes cover full-frame sensors and are available in either PL or EF mount.
On the other hand, the DZOFilm Pictor Zooms range consists (for the moment) of two versatile cine zooms – the 20-55m T2.8, and a 50-125mm T2.8. Just like the Vespid primes, the Pictor zoom are available in either PL or Canon EF mount.
DZOFilm Vespid for Full-Frame Sensors
However, unlike the Vespid, the Pictor Zooms cover Super35 sensors, and not full-frame. Full-frame coverage on these lenses can be achieved on some longer focal lengths, however at the wide end they will vignette. This makes them perfect for S35 cameras such as the Canon EOS C70, the RED KOMODO and Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro.
You can see the details of the price increase in the charge below.
