The lens also works with Canon Cinema EOS cameras that use Dual Pixel AF for reliable autofocus and offers a number of camera controls on the lens body and servo unit, including push auto iris, record start and stop, as well as remote lens control with industry-standard controllers.
The Canon Compact-Servo 18-80mm lens and ZSG-C10 accessory grip are scheduled to be available later in 2016 for an estimated retail price of $5,500 and $499 respectively. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
