Angenieux Optimo Style 30-76mm Overview

Angenieux's Optimo Style 30-76mm Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with ASU Servo Unit is a fast zoom lens with a PL mount for Super35-sized sensors. The lens includes an ASU servo unit which provides focus, zoom, and iris control.

Angenieux 30-76mm Optimo Style Zoom Lens (PL Mount)

Offering 4K+ resolution on sensor sizes up to Super 35, the Angenieux 30-76mm Optimo Style Zoom Lens (PL Mount) features a 2.5x zoom range. This lightweight, compact, mid-range lens is one of several zoom options in the Optimo Style series, Angenieux's line positioned between the classic Optimo Cine lenses and the ENG-oriented EZ series. The Optimo Style lenses build upon the earlier Optimo DP Rouge line, offering interchangeable mounts, color-matching with the Optimo line, and compatibility with both the ASU servo control, and the Optimo 1.4x and 2x extenders.

The focus ring of the 30-76mm Optimo Style features 320° of rotation, providing room for over 20 precise witness marks. An internal focus design means the lens length stays constant as the focus is changed, displaying no signs of breathing during focus pulls. The lens features a 114mm front outside diameter, fitting many standard production matte boxes. The 30-76mm Optimo Style comes standard with an ARRI PL mount, with Panavision and Canon EF lens mounts available separately. This zoom lens incorporates industry standard 0.8-MOD gears for interfacing with the optional Angenieux ASU servo unit, zoom motors, follow focus units, or wireless F/I/Z systems.

  • Fast aperture of T2.8 across entire focal length range
  • Minimal distortion with no breathing as you focus

Will this lens work with Canon C200 outfitted ...

Will this lens work with Canon C200 outfitted with wooden camera PL mount or is it too deep?

Do you need to have lens support?. Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
The PL mount is robust and meant to securely hold heavy lenses. This lens is not too heavy, only 4 lbs. However, I would not normally use this lens without support. The leverage created on the lens mount by the camera fighting the lens goes right to the lens mount, the most crucial adjustment on the camera. The mount and the lens are set to tolerances of plus minus 5 10,000 so you do not want strain that mount at all. If that adjustment is off, all your footage will be soft or the lens marks will be off as well. So if the camera and lens never move, you probably will be OK. But if you are moving, put a support under it.
