My rep said it was probably going to be either 17-110 or 20-120, BUT it's 17-120 T2.95. And list is $33K. Not bad… Less expensive and wider range than the Fuji Cabrio 19-90. Now we'll just have to see how it stacks up optically. The Fuji's are excellent.
I'm sure it will be a fantastic lens, but I'd like something smaller, lighter and cheaper, even if it is only 17-70, and the glass is not quite as good. An ENG / Doc lens that indies can afford, and use with no help from a crew ... $5000. A lens that would transform the C100 into a light weight ENG cam. If I get the C100 I may go for the soon-to-be-released tamron 16-300 3.5 - 6.3 for a GP lens. I'm sure canon could do a better version of the Tamron and add a power zoom. 16-135 f/4 or 16-60 f/2.8 would be awesome.
The 17-120 t/2.95 is US$32,000 and weighs 3 kg ! Put that on a C100 with rig, mic and batteries, and you're heading to 15-20 lbs. And you'll intimidate a lot of subjects too. All said, I'd love one, ... and someone to carry it too.
I'm leaning to the XF200 paired with my 5D3 .
I am still considering C100 to pair with 5D3, but I want an all-in-one fast-response package.
The C100 would be great paired to the XF200, but I don't want to give up my 5D3, and can't justify both a C100 and a XF200 right now.
