UJ27x6.5B IESD


Revolving power beyond 4K, providing superior quality
The UJ27x6.5B IESD is able to deliver exceptional performance that surpasses 4K resolution, thanks to Canon’s expertise in optical design. High contrast and high resolution is maintained from the image centre to the edges and is consistent in all wavelength regions of the B, G and R channels as well as in the wide frequency bands from HDTV to 4K, and even beyond.

The use of fluorite and UD glass, along with Canon’s lens coating and anti-refelction technologies, provides exceptional control over ghosting and flare; ideal for shooting outdoor sport.

Incredible zoom ratio, offering the ultimate flexibility
Professionals capturing content for broadcast, whether working in confined studio spaces or large outdoor areas, want a lens with the upmost flexibility to capture a variety of scenes. Built on feedback from broacasters and cameramen around the world, the UJ27x6.5B IESD features a 27x optical zoom, perfect for shooting sport where a mix of close up shots of the audience and long pan shots of the action is required. The lens also provides the ability to quickly change focus without losing viewing angles and, following Canon’s technological advancements to the inner focus system, focus breathing is kept to an absolute minimum. Whilst the lens has an impressive 6.5-180mm focal length, the built-in 2x extender doubles the telephoto power, yet still maintaining exceptional resolution beyond 4K.

Stylish design combined with ease of operation
The UJ27x6.5B IESD is Canon’s most stylish and intuitive 2/3” lens to date, thanks to its new design and easy handling. Additionally, the lens’ 20-pin connector ensures it easily integrates into exsiting environments.
