ANGÉNIEUX WEIGHS IN WITH TWO FULL-FRAME LIGHTWEIGHT ZOOMS CREATE & PRODUCE


Thales/Angénieux Wiztivi BY DAVID FOX BY JO RUDDOCK


Two new full-frame Optimo Compact Zooms, a 21-56mm T2.9 and a 37-102mm T2.9, have been announced by Angénieux, designed to complement the existing Optimo Ultra 12X and the Optimo Prime Series lenses. They use a completely new optical design (compared to the previous Optimo 15-40mm and 28-76mm zooms) to enable full frame coverage (a 46.3mm image circle). They have a zoom ratio of 2.7x, with a 60cm close focus distance and a front diameter of 114mm. The zooms are claimed to


offer a good balance between contrast and resolution, with an appealing cinematic look, and “perfect homogeneity of colour, contrast and resolution”. They

are said to exhibit no ramping and minimal breathing. Both are compact and


lightweight (the initially available 37-102mm is 235mm long and weighs 2.6kg), including a precise, ergonomic focus ring with scale rotation of 310°, with


user-changeable focus marking rings (imperial or metric). They can cope with extreme shooting environments with a temperature range from -20°C to +45°C. The lenses come with a PL mount and support Cooke /i metadata via an external connector.
