Boosting the world’s longest focal length of 75-1500mm with its built in 1.5x extender and a high magnification of 20x! It certainly fits the bill for compatibility with lens support rods, matte boxes, and any other cinema accessories you can imagine.

This lens offers outstanding performance in any professional shooting environment! The 17-120mm lens features a high 7x zoom, focal length range of 17mm to 120mm, and a 180 degree smooth rotating focus ring.
