NAB 2019: Fujinon Premista Cinema Zoom Lenses

I got the chance to stop by Fujinon’s booth at NAB 2019 and spoke with Tom Fletcher about Fujinon’s brand new line of full format cinema zoom lenses, called Premista. The first two lenses in this series are a 28-100 T2.9 and a 80-250mm, which is a constant T2.9 from 80-200mm and then gradually ramps up to a T3.5 from 201-250mm.

The name Premista comes from a combination of Fujinon’s highly-regarded Premier-branded lenses (such as the Premier HK, ZK and XK PL-mount series) and VistaVision, the name for the full format cinema aperture created by Paramount in the 1950's. As the name would imply, these lenses cover the full format sensors of not only the Sony VENICE, ARRI ALEXA LF (and the forthcoming ALEXA Mini LF), and Canon C700 FF, but also the longer diagonal of the RED MONSTRO sensor. Both of the new lenses cover a 46.3mm diagonal, and the 28-100mm T2.9 will even cover the truly large format ARRI ALEXA 65 when shot in its 5.1K sensor mode. Both lenses also support the Cooke /i metadata protocol as well as the new XD extended metadata protocol from ZEISS.

For more insights into this exciting new line of full format cinema zooms from Fujinon, check out the video above.
