Angénieux Optimo Ultra Compact lenses are shipping

Dec 22, 2021

After an announcement at the Cannes Film Festival last July, and a worldwide presentation in New York City by Band Pro Film & Digital Inc last September, Angénieux announces that the first 37-102 Full Frame Optimo Ultra Compact Zoom lenses are leaving the Saint-Héand factory.

Such a short time between presentation and shipment is rare enough in the cinema industry to be worthy of a note. No doubt that the Optimo Ultra Compacts will soon be on film sets.

The 37-102 is of a series of two Optimos, also including a 21-56mm lens. Together with the Optimo Ultra 12X and the Optimo Prime Series, these lightweight lenses create a complete Angénieux high-end Full Frame solution by the French manufacturer.

The new Full Frame series of Optimo high-end compact zoom lenses is the result of decades of proven expertise in high precision optics and mechanics dedicated to cinema. The 37-102 & the 21-56 are the direct descendants of the iconic and Academy awarded Optimo 15-40 and 28-76 lenses, which have been the faithful companions of Directors of Photography for more than 15 years. Step by step, they will replace them.
