Posted on May 21, 2010 by Alex Fice
Band Pro has introduced the wide and short Ruby 14-24mm T2.8 zoom from Focus Optics. This new niche lens claims to deliver an impressive level of quality and extreme sharpness, especially at the wide end.
The new Ruby offers full coverage even for the F35 sensor. Weighing just 3 lbs. and measuring 138mm long, the Ruby has a front diameter of 110mm and will accept a 102mm screw-in filter. The lens works on all 35mm PL mounted cameras, including the Sony F35, Arri, Red, and Canon D7, and on the Canon D5 with an adapter.
Focus direction is reversed to go in the traditional cine direction. What’s more, the lens offers focus travel of 126 degrees. Focus Optics’ antibacklash design ensures complete accuracy of focus marks.
The Ruby 14-24mm T2.8 is available worldwide exclusively through Band Pro Film & Digital.
