Friends. There is a thread on this forum about a new '8K ready' lens. I do not understand what makes a lens 8K ready? Can anyone please educate me on this? While you are at it, please let me know if the new RF lenses are 8K ready or not? I thank you for your knowledge.

Yes, any lens can be used with a 8K camera, but when Its for the video lenses, the kind broadcasters use. Lenses need to have a resolution capable of matching a camera and the intended resolution of the capture. Getting high resolution parafpcal zoom, and superior optics is difficult. As resolution goes up, so does the price.
