Rent Angenieux EZ-1 45-135mm Full Frame E Mount Cinema Lens in New York City.
This lens is designed with swappable rear optical elements. This allows you to easily convert the lens from covering 3-perf Super 35 to full-frame/VistaVision. This design has many advantages over adding additional optical elements such as 2x extenders. For example, by swapping the rear assembly allows the lens to maintain the same physical size and minimum operating distance, while losing only slightly more than a stop when going from Super 35 to full-frame coverage. Additionally, the optics are designed to be part of the lens, not just additional elements that blow up the image resolved by the lens. Resultantly, they match the optical quality of the lens. This means your image does not suffer from having to go through additional glass/air surfaces, which can degrade your image.
“The Angénieux Type EZ-1 for S35mm cameras is a standard zoom lens with a zoom factor of 3x. Its focal range and aperture are set to 30-90mm F1.9/T2. By exchanging the rear lens group, the lens becomes a 45-135mm F2.8/T3 for FF/VistaVision format covering an image circle up to 46mm diagonal.”
