With the newly introduced Catta Ace Cine-Zoom 18-35mm T2.9, DZO Film completes its Catta Ace full-frame cine-zoom series, which now consists of the 18-35mm, 35-80mm and 70-135mm with identical bodies - all equipped with a fast T2.9 initial aperture.
With the 18-35mm wide-angle zoom, DZO Film covers a multiple-use zoom range. DZO Film claims a parfocal design for the 1850g Catte Ace 18-35mm T2.9, which should show minimal focus breathing.
Most notable about the DZO Catta Ace series is the tool-less lens mount, which can be switched between PL / EF / LPL by the operator. If we have understood correctly, there should also be an E-mount version (without guarantee).
The rotation angle for the focus is (as with all Catta ACE zooms) 270°. The minimum focusing distance is 51 cm. The aperture consists of 16 blades. The image circle coverage is specified as 43.5 mm. The overall lengths are 179.5 mm (PL), 187.5 mm (EF/LPL).
