It is safe to say that the Angénieux Optimo 24-290 is one of the most popular and successful zoom lens ever made, and with good reason! Its wide range, very strong and reliable optical performance as well as its user-friendly ergonomics make it the ideal long-range zoom lens to achieve a wide variety of shots. It can be used in conjunction with a 1.4 or 2x extender to achiever an even longer range, or with the exclusive Vantage Hawk Anamorphic adapter.
· Exceptional optical quality enables the 24-290 to rival the best prime lens series at equivalent focal distances.
· Perfect homogeneity of colorimetry, contrast and resolution.
· For high-end film and digital cameras.
· Constant diaphragm over the totality of the course of the zoom (no ramping), very low breathing, very bright for a 12x ratio.
· Coverage of the 35mm format (30 mm diagonal).
· Compatible with Angénieux Extenders 1.4X and 2X, and DSLR Mounts.
