i would like to upgrade my fujinon x14 lense of my sony pmw ex3, i am looking for a hd profesional lense with a telephoto at least x18, ensuring full compatibilty with the cam, could somebody help my search please, thank you
here’s a link to HD lenses at B&H. You want a 1/2″ lens because the EX3 has 1/2″ sensors. Most of the lenses on this page are 2/3″ but you should be able to find a couple 1/2″ lenses to choose from. Take your pick:
So you mean i can use either the fuginon xs 17x55brm or the canon yh20x6.4 and with these lenses will i be
improving the picture quality over the supplied fuginon 14x lens. Will there be a big diffference in details?
There will be an improvement in image quality. As for how much improvement, I can’t say. I’ve never tested different lenses on an EX3.
The more important question is, will spending 8k for this lens be worth the investment – is the improvement in image quality beneficial? If you shoot weddings, probably not. If you’re broadcasting something, then it’s probably worth the investment.
