Angenieux to Introduce New 25-250mm 10x Zoom at IBC (UPDATED)

Angenieux recently revealed their 56-152mm S2 Optimo Anamorphic Zoom at NAB which was a welcome addition to the currently lacking offering of anamorphic zoom lenses. Angenieux still hasn’t released a single S2 56-152mm zoom but is already introducing yet another lens.

According to sources, this will be a NEW 25-250mm similar to the beloved classic 25-250mm HR. Hang tight for more specs such as speed and format coverage during IBC 2013, September 13th.

UPDATE

Angenieux did in fact announce their newest addition to the Optimo DP series, a 25-250mm T3.5. The lens looks like it could be a great hit given the classic focal length with modern optics and mechanics. Coverage will reach out to a 31.5mm image circle, just enough to cover most Super35 format cameras. The lens isn’t too heavy weighing in around 16lbs, available in PL, PV, Nikon, and Canon mount. Price is set right around $50,000, scheduled to begin shipping Fall 2014. It’s never too early to pre-order.
