Other Panavision® Zooms

Spherical Telephoto Zoom - STZ 

The Spherical Telephoto Zoom is a 70-200mm T3.1 zoom lens with a close focus distance of 1.44m (4¾ feet). Compact and lightweight at 2.72kg (6lbs) and approximately 21cm (8½ inches) in length, the STZ has the same 11cm (4.44 inch) front diameter as the Primo® primes.

This zoom combines high contrast and resolution, even field illumination, and minimal optical aberrations. Modern coating technology provides minimal veiling glare, ghosting, and reflections. With great flexibility and excellent imaging performance, this lens is suitable for both zooming and as a variable prime at fixed focal lengths. The STZ maintains a constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions.

Canon/Panavision Zoom – VFL4X

Panavision has totally re-engineered this Canon varifocal lens to serve as a full-featured motion picture zoom lens.

With its fully integrated Primo Zoom® mechanical technology, the VFL4X offers superior mechanically stability and precision. While primarily intended for exterior shots, the long focal lengths and close focus capability makes it a frequent choice for interior commercial shooting.

Like the Primo lenses, the Canon/Panavision lens shows focus, T-stop, and zoom scales engraved on both sides of the lens. The lens is compatible with a rear glass screw-in filter, a rear body slide-in glass filter, and a sunshade to reduce glare.
