Canon's New 6X Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Canon is releasing this week their new 6X wide angle zoom lens for the XLH1 HD camera. We had a chance to look at the lens at HD EXPO in Universal City last night and we have to say that we were extremely impressed with the quality. The focus servo is still a little spongey, but the amazing edge-to-edge, corner-to-corner clarity impressed us. This is definitely going to be added to our staple of lenses we have collected for our HD system.

The 6X lens has a focal length of 3.4-20.4mm and is an "L" series lens. Anyone who uses professional Canon equipment will recognize that the "L" insignia signifies that you're buying Canon's best glass.
