Angenieux Optimo 45-120mm Lens
Angenieux Optimo 45-120mm Lightweight Zoom Lens
is a fast zoom for Super35-sized sensors. with it's PL mount, it features a T2.8 aperture, and focuses down to 2' in front of the image plane while weighing in at only 4.3 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 lenses.
