Thales Angénieux will demo its Optimo DP Series 25-250mm 10x zoom lens at the Band Pro One World Open House at Band Pro’s Burbank headquarters on Thursday, December 12.

Optimized for today’s large format digital cameras, the new Optimo DP Series 25-250mm 10x zoom lens offers a combination of zoom ratio, aperture and price that is ideal for features, TV series, documentaries and commercials.

“The legendary ratio of 25-250mm is being reborn in this brand new, modern day zoom design - joining the Optimo DP line-up and carrying on the tradition of outstanding quality and performance all Optimo zooms are famed for,” said Eva Paryzka, director of sales, Thales Angenieux.

The lens has been designed with a complex focus group for minimal breathing and opens at T:3.5 from 25mm to 250mm constant. It fully covers the Epic M-X sensor and covers the Epic Dragon sensor on all formats below 6k plus the 6k HD format. The lens weights only 16 pounds, offering close focus of 4 ft. In addition, the 25-250mm has an integrated filter holder in the back for a 41.5mm screw in filter (or ND filter) and i/technology metadata interface. The lens is compatible with 1.4x and 2x Optimo extenders and is available in PL mount (or PV mount). It allows for on the spot mount interchange to Canon EF or Nikon F.

The Optimo DP Series line-up also includes the DP 16-42mm and 30-80mm lenses and the Optimo 3D package consisting of optically matched 16-42mm Optimo DP and/or 30-80mm Optimo DP lenses. With the addition of the new Optimo 25-250mm lens, the DP Series now covers a focal range of 16-250mm.
