Angenieux has launched its brand new series of 12 Optimo Prime lenses. The Optimo Prime series completes the Angenieux FF zoom lens offering, including the Optimo Ultra 12x.
Productions and cinematographers will now have at disposal a complete range of cine optics to cater to a wide variety of shooting requirements, adapted to the latest generations of camera sensor sizes.
The Optimo Prime series of 12 lenses provides full frame 46.5mm image circle coverage with a consistent 1.8 T-stop (except on extremes).
Available as PL and LPL and designed as smart lenses, the Optimo Prime Series is compact and lightweight. They will support both Cooke/I and Arri LDS and offer a common gear size and position for all lenses in the 12-lens set.
Focal lengths include 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 28mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm and will be manufactured both in France and Germany. The prototypes were presented at Cinegear, in Los Angeles last month.
The Optimo Prime series has been developed on the same business model settled for the EZ series, in partnership with two major sales stakeholders of the market: Band Pro in the US and Jebsen Cinecast in China.
Advanced Media Trading will be responsible for the sale and distribution of the new Optimo Prime lenses in the Middle East.
