Canon has unveiled two new prime lenses, taking its EF Cinema Lens line-up to nine models.

Canon said the CN-E 14mm T3.1 L F and CN-E 135mm T2.2 L F will “offer 4K resolutions, leading optical technologies and high-grade professionally-optimised designs, making them ideal for use in virtually any kind of production – from low to high-end”.

The new lenses join the existing CN-E 24mm T1.5 L F, CN-E 50mm T1.3 L F and CN-E 85mm T1.3 L F primes.

Designed for EF mount 35 mm and Super 35mm cameras, each model includes anomalous dispersion glass and large diameter aspherical lenses, as well as Canon’s latest broadcast lens coatings which the manufacturer said reduces ghosting and flare.

“The Cinema EOS System is designed to support creative expression, and the launch of these new wide-angle and telephoto primes means our EF Cinema Lens line-up now offers the broadest focal length range in its class,” said Canon Europe Professional Imaging marketing director Kieran Magee.

“These new lenses truly reflect the vision that the Cinema EOS System is based on – combining industry-leading technologies with professionally-optimised designs so videographers can tell stories exactly as they intended to.”

CN-E 14mm T3.1 L F will be available from May 2013 for £3,966.

CN-E 135mm T2.2 L F will be available from June 2013 for £3,793.
