The Full Frame Optimo Prime Series is a perfect match with the Optimo Ultra 12X, the new long-range zoom reference of the industry. The Optimo Prime Series is part of Angénieux’s latest high-end lens collection and will be ideal for demanding productions requiring native cinema design. Each lens in the 12-piece-series (from 18mm to 200mm) was designed to be incredibly lightweight, most of them at a fast T1.8 and 8/12 focal lengths of the same volume. In addition to the Optimo signature on primes, high optical quality and precision mechanics take your DOP creativity one step further. Based on cinematographer feedback, Optimo Primes will also provide metadata (Cooke-I, LDS) and unique user features for high-end cinema productions.
