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 Super35-sized sensors. The version of the lens ships with a PL mount, 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.

Losing only 1/10 of a stop within the lens, the Optimo is extremely efficient. The fast T2.6 maximum aperture in Super35 matches the maximum aperture of many standard prime lenses for Super35. 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 re-collimate 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
