Panavision Primo Anamorphic primes bring the superior imaging characteristics of Primo spherical primes to the anamorphic format. Like their spherical counterparts, Primo Anamorphic primes deliver high contrast and resolution, even field illumination, consistent color balancing between focal lengths, and negligible veiling glare, ghosting, and distortion. The lenses also produce the often-desired blue anamorphic flare without unwanted veiling glare.
|Focal Length||T-Stop||Close Focus (cm)(in)||Weight (kgs)(lbs)||Length (cm)(in)||Front Diameter (mm)(in)|
Consistent wide-open aperture of T2 across all focal lengths.
Every Primo Anamorphic prime features multi-layer coatings and linear irises.
“Regular” Primo Anamorphic primes have close-focus distances ranging from 2 feet 6 inches to 4 feet 6 inches, while the “close focus” lenses offer close focusing ranging from 2 feet 6 inches to 2 feet 9 inches.
Used primarily as an “A” lens with dollies and traditional studio setups, Primo Anamorphic primes intercut well with other Panavision anamorphic lenses.
Derived from a blend of Primo lenses matched to a modified version of the E Series cylindrical lens layout.
