Has anybody had any experience of the diference between the (older) canon HJ 9x5.5 KLL and the new HJ 11x4.7 KLL and the HJ 8x5.5 KLL.
I already own a Canon HJ21 and want to buy a general workhorse wide angle cine style HD zoom for TV drama. The newer 4.7 wide angle seems a bit too wide for me (yet another matte box to buy). The HJ9 seems to give me an adequate focal length range and my matte box will cover the wide end but being an older model I am unsure if it has any of the pitfalls of the earliest HD lenses. I am particularly interested in large lens focus rotation and minimal breathing.
Any useful comments appreciated.
