Part No: Optimo Anam. 44-440
Price on Request
Product Description Specification

The Optimo 44-440 A2S zoom lens features traditional 2x horizontal squeeze, minimum breathing and distortion, and a fast aperture of T:4.5 across the zoom range. It has a great close focus of 4ft 1in (1.24m), and is one of the lightest lens in its class at 16.6 lb (7.55kg). The lens creates a unique image that combines controlled background with an aesthetically dimensional foreground. The Optimo 44-440 A2S brings what many refer to as a “creamy and organic look”, this specific cinematic look that Angenieux zooms are known for and is ideal for the work with digital cameras.

Main Features

  • The lens can be converted to a 25-250mm (T3.5 – MOD 4’) spherical lens, by exchanging the rear optical element and the Focus/Zoom and T-stop markings (for package offer only)
  • Built-in lens encoder provides lens metadata (focus, zoom, T-stop) via industry standard /i Cooke protocol ou technology in both spheric and anamorphic configurations.
  • Lens data can be displayed on camera monitors to assist critical focusing, and be recorded in camera to support VFX / post production work.
  • Both focus and zoom elements are guided through an internal mechanical rod system, which helps maintain optical quality even after rough handling / transportation
