The renaissance of Long Range Anamorphic Zoom
We’ll be very pleased to present at NAB 2016 the Optimo 44-440 A2S – the third Angénieux anamorphic zoom lens. Following the Optimo 56-152 A2S and the Optimo 30-72 A2S, our new 10x anamorphic zoom lens brings speed and flexibility of the long range anamorphic zoom to the set.
Developing a high magnification anamorphic zoom companion has been a new major step in completing the Angénieux rear-anamorphic line up. The Angénieux A2S zoom lenses blend perfectly not only with the complete range of Angénieux lenses, but also with most spherical and anamorphic prime lenses of the market. In all three lenses, the cylindrical optical elements are integrated in the rear part of the lens. Their unique mount design allows a quick swap between PL and PV mounts and the focus scale ring is easily interchangeable from feet to meters. Cinematographers now have access to a full range of Angénieux anamorphic zoom lenses that should facilitate their productions in scope format.
