Primo Zoom lenses are skillfully designed to enable seamless intercutting between primes and zooms. They offer high contrast and resolution with even field illumination, and produce negligible veiling glare, ghosting, and distortion. The flexibility and excellent imaging performance of the Primo Zooms makes them suitable for both zooming and fixed-focal-length shots.
|Focal Length||T-Stop||Close Focus (cm)(in)||Weight (kgs)(lbs)||Length (cm)(in)||Front Diameter (mm)(in)|
|14.5-50||2.2||38.115||5.211.4||25.6510.1||162.1 X 131.66.38 X 5.18|
As with all Primo lenses, focus, T-stop, and zoom scales are engraved on both sides of the lens, and zero-backlash mechanics and large-diameter rings allow for precision focus pulling.
Low Ratio Primo Zooms – PMZ 14.5-50mm T2.2, PZW 15-40mm T2.6, PZM 27-75mm T2.6, PNZT 60-125mm T2.8
Panavision’s Low Ratio Primo Zooms incorporate the latest optical and mechanical design and fabrication techniques, such as aspheric surfaces and linear bearings. These zooms cover a full range of focal lengths — with some overlap for flexibility — with performance equal to or surpassing most prime lenses. Lower ratios, modest apertures, and advanced aspheres provide superior imaging in a compact form factor. Multiple moving groups ensure consistent performance throughout the zoom and focus ranges and maintain constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions.
SLZ 17.5-75mm T2.3 4:1 Primo Zoom
The speed of the SLZ makes it an ideal choice for low-light-level cinematography. The lens maintains a constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions, with continuous close focusing to macro 1:6 with a minimum distance of 2 feet. The SLZ delivers minimal breathing when focusing at short focal lengths.
PCZ 19-90mm T2.8 Primo Compact Zoom
The Primo Compact Zoom offers high performance in a conveniently small package. Its advanced design and use of aspheric surfaces enable high optical performance with an extended focal range and well-controlled breathing. The PCZ maintains a constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions, with continuous close focusing to 2¼ feet.
SLZ11 24-275mm T2.8 11:1 Primo Zoom
The 11:1 Primo Zoom is a high ratio, high performance zoom. The lens maintains a constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions and has continuous close focusing to macro 1:3.5 with a minimum distance of 4 feet. There is minimal breathing when focusing at short focal lengths (24mm-60mm). With the optional Primo 1.4x extender, the lens becomes a 34-385mm T4 lens with a 1:2.5 macro magnification and close-focus distance of 4 feet 1 inch.
SLZ3 135-420mm T2.8 3:1 Primo Zoom
The 3:1 Primo Zoom is a high-speed, high-performance telephoto zoom with an aperture of T2.8 and a focal-length range of 135-420mm. The lens maintains a constant aperture at all zoom and focus positions. The SLZ3 has continuous close focusing to macro 1:7 with a minimum distance of 8 feet, with minimal breathing when focusing at short focal lengths (135mm-200mm). The optional Primo 1.4x extender converts this lens to a 190-590mm T4 lens with a 1:5 macro magnification and close-focus distance of 8 feet 7 inches.
