The PS-zoom 18-35 started life as a Sigma f1.8 before P&S re-built it.

P&S Technik, the German engineering company, has announced a new spherical, short PS-Zoom 18-35 lens. They have basically taken a Sigma 18-35 f1.8 lens and re-built it with cine style housing with a cam-driven focus system with interchangeable mounts and focus rings. 

The zoom lens was designed for heavy use on everyday production, but at the same time an ultra lightweight design was a major goal in its development mainly because of the trend for smaller, lighter cameras and lightweight stabilising rigs. The PS-zoom comes in at just over one kilogram.

Based on the PS-IMS system, interchange mounts (PL, EF, E and MFT) are available for the PS-Zoom lenses. Metric and imperial focus scales are available and can be exchanged easily. 

Highlights

•Ultra lightweight design, approx. 1Kg.

•High-speed, T 2.0 through out focal length range.

•Super 35 coverage, image diagonal 30 mm.

•No focus shift while changing focal length.

•Reliable cam driven focus mechanics with hard stops.

•Robust cine-style housing.

•Interchangeable mount kits available.

•Metric and imperial focus scales.
