Band Pro, in partnership with Angenieux and Jebsen CineCast, have unveiled their latest lens project: Angenieux Optimo Primes. Drawing on over 80-years of Angenieux cinematic excellence, Optimo Primes represent a long-awaited step in the evolution of professional optics; finally capturing that signature Angenieux look in a complete prime lens set. First unveiled at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Optimo Primes were also on display at Cine Gear LA 2019.

Designed to give today’s cinematic artists the freedom to work on the largest possible canvas, Optimo Primes provide full frame 46.5mm image circle coverage with a consistently fast 1.8 T-stop. All focal lengths provide maximum flexibility with fully interchangeable mounts including LPL, XPL, PL, Canon EF, Nikon F and Panavision XL. Engineered as smart lenses, Optimo Primes will support both Cooke/I and Arri LDS; and feature common gear size and position across the entire 12-lens set.

Focal lengths for Optimo Primes include 21mm, 28mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm and 135mm for the initial 6-lens production run scheduled for delivery Fall 2020. The complete 12-lens set will include 18mm, 32mm, and 100mm lenses delivering Winter 2020; and 24mm, 60mm and 200mm completing the set in Spring 2021.

Band Pro’s President and CEO, Amnon Band noted: “Band Pro has a history of actively developing the next generation of cinematic tools. Partnering with Angenieux on Optimo Primes is nothing short of a milestone achievement. We’ve worked hard to capture the essence of classic Angenieux glass; and paired it with the most advanced modern optical engineering to make a lens unlike any other.”
