Fujinon Premista 19-45mm T2.9 Wide-Angle Cine Zoom Lens – PL Mount
Fujinon Premista 19-45mm T2.9 Wide-Angle Cine Zoom Lens – PL Mount. FUJIFILM Corporation is pleased to announce the development of the wide-angle zoom lens FUJINON Premista 19-45mm T2.9 (Premista 19-45mm). Offering Cinematographers focal lengths between 19 and 45mm, this will be the third model to join the Premista series of zoom lenses for cinema cameras that support large format sensors*1 and film. Just like the Premista 28-100mm and Premista 80-250mm lenses, this lens produces images with natural and beautiful bokeh, outstanding high resolution, accurate color rendition, and controllable flare with minimal ghosting for capturing high dynamic range. The Premista 19-45mm shows very little distortion
*2 throughout the entire zoom range, lightening the burden of correcting footage after shooting and allowing high quality cinematic images to be created more efficiently. The Premista 19-45mm is scheduled for release in early 2021.
Spherical zoom lens for shooting large format images with outstanding high resolution, natural and beautiful bokeh and neutral, accurate colour tone
The new Premista 19-45mm lens combines large-diameter aspherical lens elements, polished to ultimate precision, with Fujifilm’s unique zooming system to deliver superior resolution by effectively correcting issues such as chromatic aberration, achieving impressive quality and clarity.
It produces an image circle with 46.3mm diameter, supporting all current large format sensors and film.
The Premista 19-45mm has been designed to show minimal distortion even when shooting at wide-angle focal lengths.
A 13-blade design forms a near-perfect circular aperture which produces natural and beautiful bokeh.
Cutting edge optical design and Fujifilm’s unique coating process have been adopted to minimise ghosts and control flares to maintain good contrast to maximise the dynamic range of light being captured by the camera.
Fujifilm’s unique coatings also maintain a neutral cinematic colour tone that matches perfectly with other Premista, Premier and Cabrio lenses, and is very close to many high-end large format prime lenses.
Wide-angle zoom covering focal lengths from 19mm to 45mm
The new Premista 19-45mm lens is a wide-angle zoom lens with a largest T-stop value of 2.9 throughout its entire focal length range of 19mm to 45mm. This lens covers the focal lengths of five prime lenses*6, reducing the need to change lenses and allowing more effective shooting in a shorter amount of time.
*6 Five prime lenses for cinema cameras with focal lengths of 21mm, 25mm, 29mm, 35mm, and 40mm that support large format sensors.
Compact design with excellent robustness
Fujifilm’s lens design simulation technology is coupled with decades of production technology for assembling high precision optics to produce a compact and lightweight body with excellent robustness to withstand harsh filming conditions. The Premista 19-45mm is 25mm shorter length and 500g lighter in weight than the other two Premista lenses.
Excellent and comfortable operability
The Premista 19-45mm lens shares the same front diameter and gear position for the focus, zoom and iris operating rings as the other Premista lenses. The same matte box, follow-focus system, and other accessories can be used without the need to re-adjust their positions when changing between Premista lenses.
The Premista 19-45mm features a Back Focus adjustment function*7 that allows the lens to have its flange focal distance adjusted on location to correct shifts caused by rapid temperature changes.
The focus ring has a full rotation of 280 degrees and provides smooth torque to enable precise focusing. Fluorescent paint is applied to index marks on the focus, zoom and iris rings so that these settings can be visibly checked even at night or in a dark room.
*7 This function can adjust the lens’s image-forming plane to the optimum position according to each camera’s flange focal distance (the distance from the lens’s mounting reference plane to the image sensor).
Supporting ZEISS eXtended Data*8
The new Premista 19-45mm supports “ZEISS eXtended Data”, developed by Carl Zeiss in compliance with the “/i® Technology*9” communication standard. Lens metadata provides many practical benefits on set such as aiding the focus puller or improving the quality of any pre-visual effects, recorded lens metadata can be used to correct lens distortion and peripheral light fall-off*10.
*8 ZEISS eXtended Data is to be introduced with a firmware update.
*9 /i is a trademark or registered trademark of Cooke Optics Limited.
*10 Separate compatible devices are required depending on the camera used.
