Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with ASU Servo Unit

Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm Overview

Angenieux's Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with ASU Servo Unit is a fast zoom lens with a PL mount for Super 35mm-sized sensors that has been designed to utilize interchangeable rear optical assemblies. This 15-40mm zoom lens includes an ASU which provides focus, zoom, and iris control. Read more below for more detail about the included items.

Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens

Angenieux's Optimo 15-40mm Lightweight Wide-Angle Zoom Lens is a fast zoom with a PL mount for Super 35mm-sized sensors that has been designed from the ground up to utilize interchangeable rear optical assemblies. This allows you to use the same lens to cover Super 35 or full-frame/VistaVision-sized sensors by swapping out the rear optical assembly. In addition, the rear assemblies allow you to swap the lens mount from PL to Panavision or Canon EF.

The version of the lens ships with a PL mount and the Super 35 rear optical assembly. Set up as such it features a T2.6 aperture and focuses down to 2' in front of the image plane while weighing in at only 4.2 pounds. The 114mm front diameter of the lens is a common diameter compatible with cinema-style matte boxes. The lens features independent focus, iris, and zoom control rings with cinema standard gear teeth.

Interchangeable Rear Optical Assembly

The Optimo 15-40mm is designed with swappable rear optical elements so you can easily convert the lens from covering Super 35 to full frame/VistaVision. This design has many advantages over adding additional optical elements such as 2x extenders, as swapping the rear assembly allows the lens to maintain the same physical size and minimum operating distance while losing only slightly more than a stop when going from Super 35 to full-frame coverage. Additionally, as the optics are designed to be part of the lens and not just additional elements that blow up the image resolved by the lens, they match the optical quality of the lens and your image does not suffer from having to go through additional glass/air surfaces, which can degrade your image.

Interchangeable Lens Mounts

This lens ships with a PL mount; however, that mount can be swapped with separately available Panavision or EF lens mounts.
Losing only 1/10 of a stop within the lens, the Optimo is extremely efficient. The fast T2.6 maximum aperture in Super 35mm matches the maximum aperture of many standard prime lenses for Super 35mm. This allows you to light to a lower illumination level than would normally be required for many zooms, making for more consistent images as you may not have to relight the scene, as is often the case when moving from primes to slower zoom lenses.

Manual Lens Control Rings

Featuring independent manual control rings for focus, iris, and zoom, with each control ring incorporating industry-standard 0.8 lens gear teeth.

114mm Front Diameter

The Optimo shares the same 114mm front common to the Angenieux Optimo lens series, allowing you to easily share matte boxes between the Optimo lenses.

Temperature Stability

The Optimo series of lenses are designed and built to compensate for temperature drifts, which helps reduce the need to recollimate the lens.

Angenieux Servo Unit - ASU

The Angenieux Servo Unit - ASU provides ENG-style focus, iris, and zoom servo-control for your Angenieux lightweight zoom lens. The ASU bolts directly onto the lens, and has a minimum of cables for a fast setup time.

The ASU is compatible with select wired and wireless lens control systems, and generates Cooke /i metadata. Use the ASU with an optional PL lens mount /i Cooke interface to record the metadata to your camera. Depending on your remote control configuration, the ASU's focus, iris, and zoom motors can be turned off independently to avoid unintended adjustments.

Features

  • Can be used to control focus, iris, and zoom
  • Handgrip-style servo control motor attaches directly to Angenieux zooms
  • Offers wired/wireless remote FIZ control with select devices
  • Generates lens metadata in Cooke /i format
  • Integrates with motion control systems, monitors, etc. via /i output port
  • Use with optional lens mount to record metadata to camera
  • Independently shut off focus, iris, and zoom motors depending on your remote setup
