Designed by cinematographers for cinematographers, the Orion 40mm T2 2x Anamorphic Prime Lens from Atlas Lens Co. produces a vintage anamorphic look for Super 35-sensor cine-style cameras. The 40mm creates a wide-angle field of view with the shallow dept of field found in a telephoto prime. To maximize compatibility, this PL-mount lens can be switched to a Canon EF mount using a separately available Atlas mount kit. Anamorphic lens characteristics include "waterfall" bokeh, streak effects, and a spherical aberration glow when used wide open.
This mechanically dependable prime lens features a design that is standardized across the series with unified focus and iris gear positions and a common 114mm front diameter that make lens swaps easier when using cine-style matte boxes and FIZ systems. The Orion 40mm prime comes with focus marks in feet but can be switched by the user to meters using a separately available focus scale.
