The Sony SCL-P11X15 is a new PL mount zoom lens with an 11-16mm focal range at T3.0. The SCL-P11X15 was originally designed to pair with the popular Sony PMW-F3 and supplement Sony’s existing PL lenses (35mm, 50mm and 85mm), as well as their 18-252mm powered zoom (SCL-Z18X140). However, with a suggested list price of just $7,700, this little lens with its useful focal range and cine-friendly ergonomics may find itself on many other PL mount digital cameras in the near future.
The low cost of Sony’s 11-16mm zoom lens makes it attractive for documentary, corporate interview, and commercials, not to mention cinema and episodic television. However, the inclusion of Cooke’s popular /i Technology in the SCL-P11X15 means that this lens ready for work on high-end productions that rely on the /i metadata for their postproduction.* The /i metadata can be viewed on monitors connected directly to the Sony PMW-F3 or stored on the SxS Pro cards used for recording. Iris, focus and zoom information are all included in the metadata.
*Please note that firmware v1.30 for the Sony PMW-F3 is required to make use of the /i metadata. Check out the “Firmware Update” tab for details on how to download the latest PMW-F3 firmware.
