Angenieux Optimo AnamorphicOptimo Anamorphic 42-420 A2S

Based on the Optimo 44-440 A2S lens, which was introduced in April 2016, and after some customers’ suggestions, the new Optimo 42-420 A2S has a different focal length and has even less distortion than the 44-440, which already was minimal.  The lens provides the specifications that made the Optimo 44-440 A2S lens so popular and some different image characteristics.
