Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
Angenieux's Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens is a fast zoom with a PL mount for Super35-sized sensors. The lens with a PL mount, it features a T2.6 aperture, and focuses down to 2' in front of the image plane while weighing in at only 4.2 pounds. The 114mm front diameter of the lens is a common diameter compatible with cinema-style matte boxes. The lens features independent focus, iris, and zoom
control rings with cinema standard gear teeth. Losing only 1/10 of a stop within the lens, the Optimo is extremely efficient.
The fast T2.6 maximum aperture in Super35 matches the maximum
aperture of many standard prime lenses for Super35. This allows you to light
to a lower illumination level than would normally be required for many
zooms, making for more consistent images as you may not have to relight
the scene, as is often the case when moving from primes to slower zoom
