Here’s a unexpected announcement. The first thought that comes to mind is, what glass is this? My guess is Leica R series 35-70mm. Check out the press release from P+S Technik below.
We are proud to present the first P+S Technik zoom lens at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas: the front anamorphic PS-Zoom 35-70 CS.
Anamorphic Zoom for CinemaScope on 16:9 or VistaVision
The PS-Zoom 35-70 CS is a front anamorphic zoom lens ideal for CinemaScope productions using a 16:9 and Vista Vision sensor format. It’s a powerful tool for creative people.

Front anamorphic lens
VistaVision format covered
The modern optical design of PS-Zoom 35-70 CS convinces by outstanding performance even compared with the top-end lenses in this market segment.
For the widely used 16:9 sensor format the PS-Zoom 35-70 CS combines beautiful anamorphic characteristics and effective use of the sensor format for widescreen productions.
The squeeze factor of 1:1.45 offers the anamorphic qualities such as barrel distortion, nicely formed flares and shallow depths of field. In addition this factor produces a slightly wider image than CinemaScope on a 16:9 sensor and though allows cutting out the best framing in post production. This zoom expands your daily picture work extremely. You may choose it for its special anamorphic look as well as more creative freedom in post production.
The state-of-the-art housing features three gear rings with industry standard 0,8 module and hard stops. The front diameter of 114mm is compatible with professional camera and lens accessories available.
The new P+S Technik 35 to 70 mm Cinemascope zoom lens sets a new price performance point in the market of anamorphic lenses. The PS-Zoom 35-70 CS covers VistaVision full format (36 x 24 mm) and is a future proof investment into a high quality lens for future cameras.
The PS-Zoom 35-70 CS will be available directly from P+S Technik or through selected P+S Technik resellers.
Delivery starts October 2015. First reservation already have been made.
For reservations during NAB a special show offer is available.
