When it comes to offering a superior zoom magnification and impressive mid-range focal lengths, it’s hard to beat the Canon 17-120. It’s designed for the 35mm format and doesn’t disappoint in any department for anything that has to do with getting an optimal 4K performance. This makes it a go-to zoom lens for high-end productions with very demanding applications.
Canon has put special emphasis on making the 17-120 a more professional-friendly lens, with the barrel having markings on both sides of its angled surface. This would allow a professional to read them just as comfortably regardless of whether they are shooting from behind or from either side of their system.
Furthermore, these markings can even be changed to metric from the default standard labeling, allowing it to easily meet specific needs of the production.
Some of the other notable features of the Canon 17-120 include:
- Innovatively designed control rings that ensure a very balanced amount of resistance
- Operating torque that stays in a tight, consistent range
- A unique adjustment system that makes the lens a great choice for a huge variety of production applications
Something that helps it stand out as a zoom lens is that it goes well beyond the standards of 4K production, and offers much more than any HD imaging system can ever ask for. It comes in an advanced optical design that allows it to capture super sharp and extremely consistent images no matter what zoom range you choose.
Another advanced element of the Canon 17-120 that doesn’t fail to impress us is its geared inner focusing, which helps achieve a focus breathing that’s virtually non-existent.
The 11 aperture blades work in a way that makes the out-of-focus area smooth and minimizes any distortion. Similarly, there’s the uniquely designed glass construction that prevents the expanding and contracting of the barrel to keep marking discrepancies at bay.
A look at its standard specifications:
- A 7x zoom ratio
- 11 aperture blades
- EF mount
- A focal length of 17 to 120mm
- The minimum object distance (MOD) being an impressive 0.85m / 2.8’
- The front diameter measures 114 mm
As a final word, let us tell you that the Canon 17-120 is undoubtedly one of the best zoom lens for a wide variety of high-end production applications. However, the only downside to it is that it costs a fortune, while most users would only use it for a specific period of time and for certain applications.
In such a case, it makes a lot of sense to rent it from us, as you would be able to use it for working on your projects for a fraction of what it would otherwise cost you.
