Canon CN-E PL primes in Mini LF

Fri Feb 05, 2021 2:25 am

Have been using Canon CN-E PL modified primes on Amira for 4 years. They are touted as FF lenses. Will they cover the LF sensor in 16x9 UHD mode. Do I assume the the 14mm is 21mm, the 24mm is 36mm, etc. Using the Angenieux EZ's for zooms because they are lightweight. Going to test next week but interested in forum's take on these lenses on LF and if it stays sharp on edges.
I've gone to frame and line illumination tool on site but Canon CN'E's are not a choice.

Dear André,

For the CN-E's Canon states an image circle diamter of 43.3mm for "35mm full size" in the manual, that is plenty for ALEXA LF in 4K UHD mode which has an image circle diameter of 36.35mm.

It is only 0.8mm shy of LF Open Gate's 44,71mm.
