Tukami 2 (Musashi)

Musashi Optical Systemsbased in Saitama, Japan, announced the new Takumi 2, a 29-120mm T/2.9 cinema lens for full frame sensor cameras with an industry standard PL mount, which will be available in late May or early June 2021. The bright T/2.9 aperture is maintained throughout the zoom lens for consistent exposure while zooming and for a shallow depth of field.

Given the wide 4.1x zoom range and fast constant T/2.9 value the Takumi 2 can take the place of several prime or shorter zoom lenses making it an exceptional value in a dedicated cinema lens. The Takumi 2 has a 9-bladed iris with rounded blades that renders smooth transition from focus to out of focus areas and soft feathered bokeh.

Key Features of the Takumi 2:
• 29-120mm wide 4.1x zoom range in one lens
• Fast, constant T/2.9 iris throughout the zoom range
• 9 Rounded iris blades for smooth out of focus highlight and feathered bokeh
• Compatible with full frame sensor cinema cameras with industry standard PL mount
• No focus breathing
• The combination of wide zoom range and fast T-stop means it can take the place of several lenses making it an
exceptional value in a dedicated cinema lens.
• Made in Japan

The Takumi 2 joins the Takumi 1, the 40.6-332mm T/4.8 telephoto lens in expanding the company’s offerings for full frame cinema cameras.
