The Angenieux Optimo 3D Ready Package with Two DP 16-42mm Lenses takes a lot of the headache out of stereoscopic 3D production by pairing two factory-matched, high-quality lenses. For shooting S3D with a beam-splitter or side-by-side stereo rig, matched lenses are absolutely crucial. These two Optimo DP 16-42mm lenses are from the same production run – a key consideration when you're trying to find twins of a device as mechanically sensitive as a lens. (Choosing matched zooms over two sets of primes is also a good way to ease setups for stereoscopic productions.)
The two super-fast lenses have matching focus scales – focus rings are perfectly calibrated – and zoom ranges, and tracking is easily adjustable. Their zoom range of 16-42mm is appropriate for most stereo-friendly shooting, which favors wide shots over close-ups.
The kit comes in a custom Pelican case with padding cut specifically for the included items: The two lenses, shim kits, two screwdrivers, two lens support brackets, and two focus sticks.
Note: The lenses do not fit on cameras with optical viewfinders.
Optical design optimized for large-format, single-sensor digital cinema cameras: 32mm diagonal image area covers entire active pixel area of an S35/5K sensor
Super-fast aperture of T2.8 (f/2.6), with no ramping
320º focus rotation with over 20 precise focus witness marks and no breathing
Calibrated focus marks in feet or meters
