The 23.9-195mm T2.9 Takumi Super 35 was the first and founding lens of the Takumi line of cinema lenses from he distinguished Japanese optical manufacturer Musashi Optical. The is as much the realization of a dream as it is the fusion of artisanship and precision optical engineering.  

The Takumi Super 35 zoom’s design has no ramping and an integrated back focus adjustment for fast set-up and quick fine tuning in the field. The lens is for Super 35 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.  

Given the impressively wide 8.1x zoom range and fast constant T/2.9 value the Takumi Super 35 can take the place of several prime or shorter zoom lenses making it an exceptional value in a dedicated cinema lens. The lens has a 9-bladed iris with rounded blades that renders smooth transition from focus to out of focus areas and soft feathered bokeh.

Film enthusiast will be pleased to know that the Takumi Super 35 is designed to mount on Super 35 film cinema cameras with a standard PL mount.
