This is a great lens for video work, particularly when shooting interviews or similar on a super 35 sized sensor. It's compatible with all Canon's mirrorless cameras and camcorders (C300/C100 etc) and I have also used it via an E/EF adaptor on Sony FS7s and the A7 range. The optics are in great condition, it's quite light and compact and yet still f/3.5, it has a fluid variable aperture and everything functions smoothly and cleanly. If you can avoid twisting your wrist as you zoom it's virtually parfocal too. Of course you can also use it as a stills lens as well but please note this model is not compatible with mirrored DSLRs. The conversion from FD mount to EF was carried out by Eddie Houston, also known as

The original lens hood is missing but it has been replaced with a rubber hood. I'm including a Hoya UV filter which I always use to keep the front element clean and safe and there are lens caps front and back. You are welcome to inspect the lens if Richmond (SW London) is convenient for you.
