At NAB 2017, Thales Angénieux unveiled its complete Optimo, Optimo Style (including a new lens) and Type EZ Series range of lenses , in both Spherical and Anamorphic. Featuring unmistakable performance and unique characteristics, the comprehensive lens exhibit allowed visitors to see and experience the industry’s leading zoom lenses.
The Optimo Style 48-130 T3 is the third lightweight compact zoom lens in the Angénieux Optimo Style line. It joins the Optimo Style 16-40 T2.8 and 30-76 T2.8, the two other lightweight compact zooms of the range, and the 10x Optimo Style 25-250 T3.5.
The new Optimo Style 48-130 is the longest zoom in the lightweight series. It weighs only 1.95kg and has a Close Focus at 0.94m. It is the perfect lens for close-ups, portraits, or tight shots either handheld, on Steadicam, remote heads, gimbals, rigs, or drones.
The Angénieux Optimo Style 48-130 has superb optical performances. It covers an image circle up to 34.6mm diameter (RED 8K helium sensor or ARRI Open Gate for instance) with a constant T3 aperture throughout the entire zoom range. As with the rest of the Optimo Style family, it has no ramping when zooming in, minimal breathing, distortion and optical aberration. The lens shares the familiar, precise, rugged construction of the Optimo Style series with 320 degree rotation of the focus barrel, and industry standard 0.8M gears on the focus, iris and zoom barrels.
With only three compact and lightweight zoom lenses, cinematographers can now cover a focal length range from 16mm to 130mm, and up to 260 mm with the Angénieux 2x Optimo extender.
As its two companions Optimo Style 16-40 and 30-76, the Optimo Style 48-130 has an easily interchangeable PL mount to Canon EF or Panavision PV mount and can be used with the Angénieux Servo Unit (ASU) with integrated motors for remote control with industry standard wireless and broadcast control systems. This new Angenieux addition should meet the interest of all cinematographers who look for the Angénieux worldwide famous excellence at an affordable price. The lens will fit the latest digital cameras and cameras with mirror shutters and match with the rest of the Angénieux line as well as the best brands of prime lenses. The lens should be available on the market Q4/2017.
