Las Vegas, NV (April 8, 2013) – Today’s unveiling of the first in its new anamorphic lens series represents an important step in Angénieux’s ongoing industry leadership in designing new optical technologies that enhance technique and creativity for cinemascope production. The new lightweight Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm 2S (2x squeeze) Zoom Lens lends a film-like, dimensional character to images with lower distortion compared to typical anamorphic lenses.

“As an industry leader in zoom lens technology for film and digital production, we strive to develop optical innovations that enable cinematographers to bring their vision to the screen,” said Dominique Rouchon, Sales and Marketing Director, Thales Angénieux. “Our new Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm 2S Zoom Lens invites freedom of movement into the creative process with superior results, whether used in hand-held mode or on a Steadicam.”

With 2x squeeze, a fast aperture of T:4 and no ramping or breathing, the Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm 2S Zoom Lens delivers exceptional optical performance not previously achieved with an anamorphic lens. Based on the optical design of the world renowned Optimo 28-76mm (SOC award 2012, Academy of Motion Picture award 2009), the new Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm 2S Zoom Lens features all of the remarkable characteristics shared by the Optimo series, including pristine optics, high precision mechanical zoom system and 320° focus rotation with over 50 focus marks. The unique optical design combines spherical and cylindrical elements in the same group, giving the 56-152mm lens exceptional sharpness and low distortion for an anamorphic zoom. Furthermore, the flexibility of a 2.7x zoom range is perfect for framing without the need to move the camera forward or backwards. The lens is extremely compact, weighing only 4.8lb or 2.2kg. The Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm 2S is a PL mount lens with a PV mount available on request.
