The Angenieux 56-152mm Optimo Anamorphic A2S Zoom T4.0 features 2x squeeze, a fast aperture of T4.0, and no ramping or breathing. Based on the optical design of the popular Optimo 28-76mm, the Optimo Anamorphic 56-152mm A2S Zoom features all of the remarkable characteristics shared by the Optimo series, including pristine optics, high precision mechanical zoom system, and 320° focus rotation with over 50 focus marks.

The unique optical design combines spherical and cylindrical elements in the same group, giving the 30-72mm lens exceptional sharpness and low distortion for an anamorphic zoom. Furthermore, the flexibility of a 2.7x zoom range is perfect for framing without the need to move the camera forward or backwards. The lens is extremely compact, weighing only 4.8 lb (2.2 kg). Comes standard with PL mount; however, a PV mount is also available on request (must be installed by a professional lens technician).
