Angenieux teases a brand new lens

Angenieux is teasing a brand new lens on Instagram. Based mostly on the colour tone of the outside housing I’m guessing that it’s an addition to the French firm’s EZ sequence that already consists of the Angenieux EZ-1 30-90mm T2.0 and the EZ-2 15-40mm T2.0.

If I used to be a betting man I’d think about that this would be the EZ-3 and it will likely be an extended focal size within the sequence. Based mostly on the opposite focal lengths I believe we’re more likely to see a zoom with a focal size of round 80-200mm.

I’ve beforehand reviewed the EZ-1 and EZ-2 on the location earlier than. You possibly can see that evaluate right here.

In case you are not accustomed to the Angenieux EZ sequence they are often purchased with each the Super35 and FF/VistaVision rear lens-groups. The lenses are quick, T2.0 in Super35 and T3.0 in full-frame/VistaVision. Swapping between the rear lens teams doesn’t have an effect on the bodily size of the lens, minimal focus distance, or zoom ratio. Nonetheless, the full-frame rear lens group does change the 30-90mm zoom that covers Super35 to a 45-135mm zoom that covers the full-frame/VistaVision aperture, and the 15-40mm zoom that covers Super35 modifications to a 22-60mm zoom that covers the full-frame/VistaVision aperture.

The lenses have 3 handbook lens management rings: focus, iris, and zoom. Every ring options cine-style 0.8 MOD gear tooth, for compatibility with comply with focus models and lens management motors. The 114mm entrance widespread to the Angenieux OPTIMO lens sequence, permits you to simply share matte containers between the EZ sequence and the OPTIMO lenses.
