Angenieux Optimo Rouge Lenses Now Available at NYC’s The Studio – B&H

Lens manufacturer Thales Angenieux’s Optimo Rouge lenses and and a selection of other broadcast and film lenses from the company’s Academy Award-winning design team are now available through The Studio – B&H.

Located in midtown Manhattan, The Studio – B&H is a showroom that gives customers the opportunity to test and compare a wide range of production and post-production equipment as well as participate in product demonstrations and training opportunities.

“We’re always looking to provide our customers with the option best suited for their production,” says Danielo Garcia, production sales engineer and showroom manager for The Studio – B&H. “Through our partnership with Angenieux, we can now offer a lightweight PL mount production package which covers the full range from 16-80mm as well as the full selection of broadcast lenses.”

The new Optimo DP 16-42mm Rouge lens features a wide-angle position of 16mm (75.4 degrees), a fast aperture of T2.8, calibrated focus marks and no ramping or breathing. In addition, the lightweight (4.2 pounds) PL mount lens features a unique mechanical design for precise zoom and focus. The highly acclaimed Optimo DP 30-80mm lens features a focal length of 30-80mm (2.7X zoom) and delivers the image coverage of full S35 (31.1mm diagonal) in a lightweight and compact design that weighs only 4.2 pounds (1.9 kg).

“Many of our customers from the film industry were eager to test the Optimo Rouge lenses and now they have a place to come and demo them in our showroom,” says Garcia. “The same can be said for our broadcast customers since we have both the 26XHD & 19XHD lenses, which have been well received.”
