The Optimo 44-440 A2S zoom lens offers an aperture of T4.5 across the zoom range without concern about loss of quality which is unusual for such a long range lens. It has a close focus of 4ft 1in (1.24m), and is one of the lightest lenses in its class at 16.6 lbs (7.55kg). It features built-in encoders providing metadata (focus, zoom, T-stop) via the industry standard /i Technology interface developed by Cooke. The lens can be converted to a 25-250 mm (T3.5 MOD 4 ft /1.21m) spherical lens, by exchanging the rear optical element and the Focus/Zoom and T-stop markings (for package offer only).
