lens for ex3
on Mar 8, 2010 at 6:13:56 am

Im trying to find a good lens to replace the stock lens of ex3. Can the Fujinon S13x4.6RMS 1/2" CCD lens work on ex3?

I'm sure you will be able to use this lens on your EX3 (with the 1/2" adapter that comes with it) but, why would you want to? The stock Fuji lens which came with the EX3 is a decent enough lens, probably about the same quality as the one you linked to (maybe even better) AND has IS. Are you looking for more telephoto?
I would look into some good 35mm Nikkor options for that. You can pick up a decent used Nikkor lens cheap and the adatpers from MTF or Adaptimax are only a couple hundred bucks.

Why downgrade to a Standard def lens? Although cheap the fitted lens is really excellent. Also the angle of view is much tighter on your suggested lens.

Thanks for the reply guys.

Yeah youre right, the lens from fujinon is a wrong choice.

Yes, I want a telephoto lens longer that the stock lens of ex3. I saw some lens that says 1/2" CCD, wouldnt that affect the ex3 since its CMOS? And what do they meant when they say that iris and zoom are motorized?

It means that the lens has a power zoom and power iris, meaning you don't have to twist things manually if you don't want to. I can't comment on whether you can use a lens designed for a CCD camera on a CMOS camera because I don't know. My gut feeling though, is that you can.

There is no difference between a ccd and cmos, If anything, get an adapter and go to a 2/3" lens. You get better glass, probably more zoom and they're larger and let in more light. You'll be able to rent 36x or 44x sports lenses when you need to. 1/2" lenses are marginal in comparison.
