Those who are keen filmmakers using the best 8K and 6K cameras should take note of the latest from Viltrox, who are teasing a Viltrox 30-300mm T4 Cine Zoom. I have to say that's an amazing feat of engineering that challenges the likes of Arri and Cooke - an achievement all on its own. But if I know anything of Viltrox, this lens will also be excellent on price.

If you're looking for a "do it all" lens that you can use for your whole career on commercials, indie projects, heck, even Hollywood productions then I can see this lens being a great asset to many filmmakers and cinematographers out there.
