    WHO??

    Anyone ever even seen one being used out in the field / on a film set?? What is the market for such a zoom?

    Maybe a lens used for jib shots?? How often does anyone need slow and smooth in-shot zooming from 18mm-24mm?
    The 19-90 I understood at the time and saw them out. I even saw the 85-300's, which make a lot of sense, especially for us sports guys. But the 14-35 I just laughed at and asked my rep kind of the same thing, who in the hell would get it. Even as a wide angle junkie, I shook my head.

    So tempted to plunk down some cash and get a lens for doc/eng shooting and the 20-120 cabrio ticks all the boxes with the price drop. I will say that I am tempted by the Angenieux 30-90, but the timetable to get one in my hands may be too long. Zeiss told me 7 weeks from order for their 20-120 at the moment as well.

    I did see one post about the Cabrio 20-120, which gives me some second thoughts though:

    Not in love with the optical vignetting when lens is wide open and at max focal length portion of the zoom...

    Feels really strong and noticeable.

    Any thoughts?

    Well... it's noticeable shooting a white wall, with the waveform on. That would probably not be the case in real-world shooting. In a "real" shot at 75-120mm range, there's almost always going to be some kind of subject in the central half of the frame. And for that matter, it's so common to add a vignette in post these days, that it may not really even be a drawback. It would be a much bigger problem if the falloff was more noticeable on the wide end, but it's quite well controlled. Just my two cents.

    Fair enough! I've shot with this lens a couple of times and never noticed it all....but I'm not a pixel peeper at heart.
