Camera Hire, a Sydney-based rental house, has expanded its rental inventory with the addition of the Fujinon MK lenses from Fujifilm.
The MK series of cinema lenses is designed for consumer and prosumer videographers, as well as emerging cinematographers. Available in two models — the MK18-55mm T2.9 zoom lens and MK50-135mm T2.9 telephoto zoom lens — the MK series features Super 35mm/APS-C sensor compatibility with dedicated E-mount design.
Camera Hire’s Bevan Dally explained: “We run a rental company and heard fairly early on Fujinon was releasing some new lightweight E-mount MK zooms specially targeting the Sony FS7 and FS5 cameras. Both cameras have been popular; however, the only zoom lens options have been either by Sony or using PL and EF adapters, so these new MK lenses were ideal for us and our customers.”
He further credited the MK lenses for its “outstanding image quality” and flexibility, as the lenses can be deployed with multiple camera models in either shoulder-mount or tripod-mount configurations. “The MK series are particularly good compared to other lightweight cine zoom options around so they are an excellent choice for anyone wanting a low-cost, high-quality lens option to shoot with,” Dally concluded.
