New Takumi-2 29-120mm T2.9 Large Format Cine Lens

February 22, 2021 - Saitama, Japan – Musashi Optical Systems announces the new Takumi 2, a 29-120mm T/2.9 cinema lens for full frame sensor cameras with an industry standard PL mount. The bright T/2.9 aperture is maintained throughout the zoom lens for consistent exposure while zooming and for a shallow depth of field.

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.

• 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

• 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
