Recently presented for the first time in the world at NAB, Angénieux is pleased to present at IBC2017 its new Optimo Style and two new accessories for the Optimo Lens lines
The Optimo Style 48-130 T3 is the third lightweight compact zoom lens in the Angénieux Optimo Style series. It is the ideal companion to the Optimo Style 16-40 T2.8 and 30-76 T2.8, the two other lightweight compact zooms of the range, and the 10x Optimo Style 25-250 T3.5. It weighs only 4.3lb/1.95kg and has a Close Focus at 3’1”/0.94m. With its unique zoom range it is the perfect lens for close-ups, portraits, or tight shots either handheld or on Steadicam, sticks, remote heads, gimbals, or rigs.
The Angénieux Optimo Style 48-130 has high optical performances. It covers an image circle up to 34.6mm diameter (RED 8K helium sensor or ARRI Open Gate for instance) with a constant T3 aperture throughout the entire zoom range. As with the other lenses of the Optimo Style series, it has no ramping when zooming in, minimal breathing, distortion and optical aberration. The lens shares the familiar, precise, rugged construction of the Optimo Style series with 320 degree rotation of the focus barrel, and industry standard 0.8M gears on the focus, iris and zoom rings. With the three compact and lightweight Optimo Style lenses, cinematographers can now cover a focal length range from 16mm to 130mm. It can be extended to 260mm with the Angénieux 2x Optimo extender. As its two companions Optimo Style 16-40 and 30-76, the Optimo Style 48-130 has an interchangeable mount system, allowing easy swap of the mount from PL to Canon EF or Panavision PV. The lens can be equipped with the Angenieux Servo Unit (ASU) with integrated motors for remote control with industry standard wireless and broadcast control systems. It also can be fitted with the Angénieux 1.4x and 2x Optimo extenders. This new Angenieux addition should meet the interest of all cinematographers who look for the Angénieux worldwide famous excellence at an affordable price. The lens will fit the latest digital cameras and cameras with mirror shutters and match with the rest of the Angénieux line as well as the best brands of prime lenses. It has already met the highest interest of a lot of rental companies. The first units of the 48-130 Optimo Style will be released in quarter 4, 2017

Initially designed to add an even more distinctive look to the Angénieux anamorphic image, Angénieux presented at NAB 2017 two new stand –alone accessories for its anamorphic line: an uncoated front element and a special coated rear element. The two short zooms – Optimo 56-152 A2S and 30-72 A2S -can be equipped with an uncoated front element which offers a softer contrast image with additional flares around highlights, whereas the Optimo 44-440 A2S can be fitted with a special coated rear element enhancing blue flare.
To those who are looking for a distinctive look even in spherical, Angénieux is now pleased to announce at IBC that its uncoated front element can also fit the Optimo 28-76 and 15-40
Both accessories can be bought separately and be installed (or removed) by lens technicians without affecting the superb basic image characteristics such as well controlled breathing and distortion.
