Sony SCL-Z18x140 FZ Mount 14x Power Zoom Lens | H. Paul Moon | Vimeo Forums
Specs for this lens that Sony previously announced, and should be available in November. Notably, this lens uses the F3 lens mount (FZ mount) that's native to the PMW-F3 (the PMW-F3 also works with PL mount lenses, but requires an adapter that Sony includes with the camera.) One nice feature of this lens is that it is compatible with the integral zoom rocker of the PMW-F3 for electronic control of its zoom position. MSRP $12,200.00
