Canon HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE

Premium standard HDTV lens: wider & closer, brongs additional mobility to HD video production
The HJ17ex6.2B represents a further advancement of the HDxs Series, already the premier series of HDTV lenses.
Offering optimum mobility, the HJ17ex6.2B premium HDTV lens is a new addition to the HDxs Series, Canon's premier HDTV lens lineup, with lenses covering a full range from Super Telephoto (1,120mm) to Super Wide (4.3mm). Professional users are now more able to select the appropriate lens for their expressive needs, and produce video with the high quality for which HDxs is renowned. 

Shoot closer, shoot wider. Improved mobility for camera crews in diverse situations.
When covering news stories on-site, camera crews must work with a limited supply of equipment and react rapidly to various changes in subject distance and focal length.
The HJ17ex6.2B is capable of adapting flexibly to all manner of filming situations, whether shooting in close proximity to a subject or shooting close-ups of a subject from far away, without the need for changing lenses, thanks to its short M.O.D., extra-wide angle, 17x magnification, and built-in 2x extender.
For production of documentaries, the HJ17ex6.2B enables vivid shooting even when ultra-close to the subject to make the scene come alive, or shooting in small rooms where distance from the subject cannot be attained.
The HJ17ex6.2B is a single lens capable of flexible operation, enabling the improved versatility required by camera crews, maximum cost- and performance-efficiency for productions, and a wide range of expressive possibilities.

Superb optical performance. Wider focal length.
With focal lengths ranging from wide-end to tele-end, and at subject distances ranging from infinite distance to extreme closeup (in which case optical performance generally suffers), the HJ17ex6.2B minimizes optical aberration across the entire screen and exhibits superb optical performance throughout the field.
The HJ17ex6.2B provides the same magnification (17x) as our well-established HDTV production lens, the HJ17ex7.6B, while achieving a wider focal length of 6.2mm.
M.O.D. has been shortened by approximately 30% (0.4m) compared to the HJ17ex7.6B.

Outstanding optical performance of the Canon HDxs Series
The HDxs Series makes optimum use of original Canon optical elements, UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) glass, large-diameter high-precision aspherical lenses and more, with their potential maximized through designs employing Canon's original "Power Optical System" optical design technology.
At the same time, the HDxs Series succeeds in suppressing ghosting and flaring by employing ray simulation technology in conjunction with original Canon spectral coating. Its amalgamation of advanced Canon optical technologies also minimizes curvature of field, comatic aberration, chromatic aberration of magnification, and axial chromatic aberration throughout the entire filed regardless of focal length or subject distance, stably exhibiting peak optical performance. 

Improved Operabilty and Reduced Operator Fatigue
Besides the exceptional optical performance, another remarkable character of this new lens is it's newly designed drive unit. With the goal of pursuing ease of operation, Canon has reached a new design based on human ergonomics, refined by a long term research and testing.
