Angenieux EZ-2 15-40mm Zoom Lens (S35, FF) T2.0

April 3rd, 2019 • by Faith Johnson • in Blog, New Equipment

Angenieux EZ-2 lenses are fast and lightweight, and include an innovative modular design with Interchangeable Rear Optics allowing for coverage of Super 35mm and larger image formats for cine and broadcast productions. The lens is designed with swappable rear optical elements so you can convert the lens from covering 3-perf Super 35 to full frame/VistaVision.  The EZ-2 for S35mm cameras is a wide zoom lens with a zoom factor of 2.7x. Its focal range and aperture are set to 15-40mm F1.9/T2. By exchanging the rear lens group, the lens becomes a 22-60mm F2.8/T3 covering an image circle up to 46mm diagonal.

EZ-2 has a 114mm front diameter, 0.8 gear teeth on focus, iris, and zoom, as well as a removable support foot.This clever design has many advantages over adding optical elements such as 2x extenders, as swapping the rear assembly allows the lens to maintain the same physical size and minimum operating distance. There is no other cinema zoom lens that offers a constant T2 aperture with such a wide focal range. The EZ-2 uses internal focusing and zooming mechanisms, so the lens size remains constant throughout the zooming and focusing range.

The design of the EZ-2 allows for more versatility and assured future-proofing. The optics are designed to be part of the lens, and not just additional elements that blow up the image resolved by the lens. By doing this your image does not suffer from having to go through additional glass and/or air surfaces. This lens can maintain the same image quality regardless of whether you are using it on a Super 35mm sensor or full frame/VistaVision camera. The fast and constant T2 aperture is a very welcome feature for single operators or people shooting documentaries and run and gun projects, The EZ-2 is perfect for shooting scenarios in which using prime lenses are impractical.
