OPTIMO ANAMORPHIC: ELEVATING ANAMORPHIC PRODUCTION TO A NEW LEVEL

The two short anamorphic zooms, Optimo 56-152 A2S and Optimo 30-72 A2S, are the lightest and most compact anamorphic zoom lenses ever made.
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. 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. They are compatible with the Angenieux Servo Unit.
