Complementing the 16-40 T2.8 and 30-76 T2.8, the Angenieux 48-130mm T3 Optimo Style Zoom Lens offers a 2.7x zoom range inside a compact lens while maintaining a relatively fast aperture.
Optically, this lens natively covers Super 35 formats, up to 34.6mm diagonal, including the RED Helium 8K sensor. Its light weight ensures that it can be used in payload-conscious situations, including scenarios with gimbals, remote heads, and steadicams. Coatings applied to the glass elements reduce flare and ensure that the lens will color-match with other Optimo and Optimo Style lenses. Precise focus mechanisms inside the lens reduce breathing and space.
Mechanically, the native PL mount interfaces with digital cinema cameras that use a standard ARRI PL mount. Other mount options, such as Canon EF or Panavision PV are available separately. The focus, zoom, and iris rings all feature 0.8 MOD cinema-standard gearing for lens control accessories, and the focus ring has a long 320° throw with 20 witness marks for precise focus pulls. A 114mm front diameter ensures compatibility with standard matte boxes and filters.
Whether you're shooting a feature film or a cinéma vérité documentary, cinematographers of all types can benefit from having a longer focal length lens that can be easily deployed and transport.
