Jebsen Industrial presents at BIRTV 2019 (Beijing) the first prototype (F40mm) of the Angenieux Full Frame Optimo Prime Series. This key addition to the professional cine lenses currently available was recently announced at the Cannes Film Festival.
This new set of Full Frame prime lenses was designed to accurately match the look and feel of Angenieux’s long-celebrated Optimo Zoom Series, both mechanically and optically.
Productions and cinematographers will now have at disposal a complete range of cine optics perfectly matching, responding all their shooting needs or desires, and adapted to the latest generations of camera sensor sizes. The Optimo Prime Series will perfectly complete the Angenieux FF zoom lens offer, including the Optimo Ultra12x.
The Optimo Prime Series of 12 lenses will provide full frame 46.5mm image circle coverage with a consistent 1.8 T-stop (except on extremes). Available as PL and LPL and designed as smart lenses, the Optimo Prime Series is very compact and lightweight. They will support both Cooke/I and Arri LDS;
Focal lengths include 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 28mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm and will be manufactured both in France and Germany, final quality check being done at Angénieux.
On the basis of the above-mentioned partnership, sales and distribution of the new Optimo Prime lenses will be handled in the Americas by Band Pro; in Europe, Africa, Eurasia, India and Middle-East by Angenieux, and in Asia-Pacific by Jebsen.
