Angenieux Adds 45-120mm to Their Optimo Line

Angenieux has long been the standard for cinema zoom lenses and certainly isn't stopping anytime soon. NAB brings out the best in new lens manufacturers (and sometimes the worst) so Angenieux took the opportunity to announce their new addition to the Optimo series of lenses. This time it's a 45-120mm. A little on the longer end of an all-purpose zoom, this will share a lot of the same features as the other light weight zooms like the 15-40mm and the 28-76mm Optimo. It will cover a full Super 35mm sensor/film utilizing a 31.4mm image circle and will feature an interchangeable mount with options for PL, Panavision, Nikon F, and Canon Eos. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Interchangeable Nikon F and Canon Eos Mount."][/caption] The focus scale has 320° of rotation which is about as much as anyone could every want and offers separate interchangeable metric and imperial scales. It will weigh in at 4.3 lbs. making it perfect for lightweight, steadicam, and 3d rigs. It's a constant T2.8 which isn't the fastest zoom in the world, but it's certainly not the slowest and matches well with other pro cine zooms. I'm sure we can expect the same accuracy and quality as the rest of the Optimo lenses. It's focal range, 45-120mm is a little long even at the wide end giving it a horizontal angle of view of 27.4°-10.5°. A 45mm in a S35 frame is fairly tight and 120mm on the long end gives it a nice versatile throw. It's 2.7x zoom ratio drops it in the same boat as the other short zooms. I'll be looking forward to getting my hands on this little bad boy from Angenieux and putting it through the paces. I have no doubt I won't be let down.
