Angenieux Anamorphic 30-72mm A2S

The two short Angenieux anamorphic zooms, Optimo 56-152 A2S and Optimo Anamorphic 30-72 A2S, are the lightest and most compact anamorphic zoom lenses ever made.

The Angénieux A2S zoom lenses blend perfectly not only with the complete range of Angénieux lenses, but also with most spherical and anamorphic prime lenses of the market. The cylindrical optical elements are integrated in the rear part of the lens.
