A red alumite identity color is used for the lens’ mount area to indicate conformance with Canon Cinema EOS optical technology’s many outstanding features such as support for EOS-LENS data communication. A structure enabling the lens’ EF mount to be replaced with a PL mount, or vice versa (electrical system included), is also incorporated. This conversion upgrade can be provided at authorized Canon service centers. The EF and PL versions of the lens are designated CN20x50 IAS H/E1 and CN20x50 IAS H/P1, respectively.
