The technical specs for the lenses from the press release:
The Full Frame Optimo Prime Series is a perfect match with the Optimo Ultra 12X, the Industry’s preferred long range zoom. The Optimo Prime series is part of Angénieux’s latest high-end lens collection and is ideal for demanding productions. 70 years after the first Angénieux prime series, the Optimo Prime Series is the result of decades of proven experience and know-how in high precision optics and mechanics. Each lens in the 12 piece series (from 18mm to 200mm) was designed to be incredibly compact and lightweight, most of them at a fast T1.8, with Optimo-class mechanics and feel that embodies the legendary Angénieux look. Based on cinematographer feedback, the series provides meta data (Cooke-I, LDS) and unique user-features such as replaceable iris blade unit, internal glass optical element and rear filter. Three types of sets are available: Silver set with 6 lenses (21,28,40,50,75 and 135mm); Gold set with 9 lenses (18,21,28,32,40,50,75,100 and 135 mm); Platinum set with 12 lenses (18,21,24,28,32,40,50,60,75,100,135 and 200 mm).
