Fujinon Selects Band Pro as Distributor for PL Mount Zoom Lens Series

Band Pro Film and Digital has been selected by Fujinon as the premier distributor of the lens maker’s new PL mount zoom lens series.

“We chose Band Pro as our distribution partner because of our long-standing business relationship and their history of bringing high-quality, high-performance products to the digital cinematography market” says Hank Hayashi, President and CEO, Fujinon.

Fujinon’s series of four zoom lenses provide unprecedented focal range choices from 14.5 to 400mm, with fast T stop performance and exceptional optical quality. Uniform front barrel size (136mm) and gear placement, with consistent color matched image quality in four focal ranges, facilitate quick lens changes, efficient production, and creative expression.

The first lens in the series, the 18-85mm T2.0, debuted at last year’s NAB and is now available from Band Pro. Band Pro is also taking orders for the 75-400mm T2.8-T3.8, which will soon begin delivery.  The other two lenses, the 24-180mm T2.6 and 14.5-45mm T2.0, will be unveiled at April’s NAB exhibition, and are scheduled to begin delivery in the coming months.
