There is a good reason Barry Ackroyd chose the Canon 8-64mm T2.4 as his primary lens on HURT LOCKER - it does everything right. Not only is it sharp, has one of the most useful zoom ranges of any lens and has an amazing close-focus, but it also has almost NO FOCUS BREATHING at any focal length. Super-16 zooms are known for their bad focus breathing, and this lens has none at the wide end and almost none at the long end. With a field of view that is roughly equivalent to a 14.5-115mm in Super-35 terms and a close focus that nearly touches the front of the lens, this is the ultimate documentary lens. There is rarely a moment where you feel like you can't get the shot you need or feel like you have to change lenses. Perfect documentary shooting.

This lens was designed to cover the Super 16mm format. If you are shooting on a camera with a super-35mm or APS-C sensor like a Canon C300 MKII, Sony FS7 or ARRI Amira, this lens will give you roughly the same field of view of as a 16-128mm lens would give you, which is really useful range. The 8-64mm gives you a field of view range that’s a bit wider and a bit longer than the popular Canon 17-120mm T2.95, and it’s lighter, cheaper, and almost a stop faster. The 8-64mm is a compact, lightweight, 8X cinema zoom lens, with a fast, constant T2.4 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range, with no ramping.

This lens seems to have been developed with the documentary shooter in mind. It covers the most commonly used focal lengths, it’s got a fast maximum aperture, it’s extremely light-weight, and it has relatively short focus and zoom rotation, which is ideal for when you are zooming and pulling focus directly off the barrel. That being said, this lens delivers a very desirable look, making it well suited for scripted work as well.
