““Enabling customers to configure their lenses optimized for projects and/or cameras is truly a unique feature that is only available from Angénieux” - Christophe Remontet – Managing Director, Angenieux Partnerships & Business Development.”
Angénieux is proud to announce a new multi-format zoom lens at IBC 2017. Following up the Angénieux Type EZ Series for S35mm and larger image formats recently unveiled at IBC 2016 for the growing corporate, documentary and owner-operator markets, Angénieux is pleased to announce a new multi format Optimo zoom lens for the high-end production market.
The new challenge for Angénieux was to offer a new generation of lenses with an even higher quality for Full Frame feature and high-end digital content production. The lenses should be modular, retain the Angénieux look, and provide the mechanical feel, robustness and optical performances that customers have enjoyed over the past decades with the famed Optimo line.
Once again, the challenge has been fully achieved by the Angénieux development teams with the new Optimo Ultra 12x lens. This fully innovative zoom lens is a multi-format high magnification zoom, thanks to the IRO technology. Successor model to the industry reference Optimo 24-290 (and 28-340), the Optimo Ultra 12x is the ideal long-range zoom for high-end productions: Feature Films, TV Series, Live Stage, Commercials, Music Videos. The lens features a totally new optical & mechanical design, offering high optical performance (superb image quality, no ramping, minimal breathing, very short MOD) and improved mechanical stability and serviceability. The Optimo Ultra 12x which comes with the standard PL mount lens, has a sub-mount system in order to be equipped with various mount options. Optically, users will appreciate its superb image quality along the full focal length range, minimal breathing and low distortion and its very close focus. Mechanically, the lens features precise and ergonomic focus ring with ability to swap easily the focus scale ring from meters to feet. It is designed for extreme shooting conditions with a better sealed optical area than on its predecessor reducing dust inhale, and can be used in a temperature range from -20°C to +40°C (-5°F to + 105°F).
Thanks to the IRO technology the lens can be configured to cover 3 different formats: S35 (Ø31.1mm image circle), U35 (Ø34.6mm image circle) and FF/VV(Ø46.3mm image circle). It will be the perfect zoom lens for the new generations of high-end digital cameras.
Two packages will be available :
Also available a specially designed Carrying Handle and a Front Protective Glass.
Optimo Extenders 1.4X and 2X can also fit the Optimo Ultra 12x
