This lens also has an inner zoom mechanism that keeps the overall length consistent throughout the entire zoom range, helping it to feel balanced in the hand and while on a gimbal. Finally more manufacturers are making internal zoom lenses again… Sony, Canon, Nikon take note!

The inner zoom also means the lens’ center of gravity stays fairly constant, so it’s perfect for video use, while operating a gimbal, another plus for cinematographers. With its exceptionally compact form-factor, weighing in at just 450g and measuring just 100.6mm in length, this is a highly practical optic that is portable enough for everyday shooting for both photographers and cinematographers. 

It’s especially appealing for landscape, wedding and travel photographers who need to carry their kit over long distances or for long periods of time, but really don't want to carry more than they have to.
