Canon CN-E Compatibility

Sun Aug 20, 2017 12:50 am

I was wondering if you guys can help with some advice on the EF mount. Is the Arri EF mount fully working with the CN-E ? Is there a compatibility for lens data transmition from the CN-E lenses to the camea and WCU-4 via the Arri EF mount? Are there other, better option for an EF mount ? Thank you, Ovi

You can use the 17-120 - works perfectly
18-80 won’t work I’ve heard

Dear All,

yes, CNE 18-80 and CNE 70-200 don't work on our cameras since Canon uses a different protocol than the other EF-Mount lenses.
