Super Panavision 70 Lenses

Super Panavision 70 lenses are true vintage optics. From Lawrence of Arabia to the more recent Live by Night and Assasin’s Creed, the Super Panavision 70s have left a distinctive mark on cinematic history. The lenses deliver more radiant flaring characteristics than their modern counterparts, with smooth texture, distinct focus roll off, and low contrast. The uniquely contoured bokeh makes the lenses particularly identifiable. Super Panavision 70 lenses are compatible with both film and digital cameras fitted with a Panavision 65 mount.

Auto Panatar

The Auto Panatar offers a soft, glamorous, classic-looking image with a 1.3x anamorphic squeeze ratio. The exceptional resume of the Auto Panatar includes The Hateful EightRogue One: A Star Wars Story, Raintree County, Ben-Hur, Mutiny on the Bounty, and The Greatest Story Ever Told. The internal cylindrical components accentuate the anamorphic look much more than spherical mechanisms and produce brilliant flares. The Auto Panatar lenses feature a distinctive, manipulated elliptical bokeh, vertical defocus, and organic focus roll off.

Primo 70 Series

Specifically designed for Large Format digital cameras, the internal mechanics of the Primo 70 lens series features internal motors and full lens metadata capabilities. Floating internal elements control breathing and allow the lens to maintain extremely high performance from infinity to close focus.  While the Primo 70s are undeniably sharp, the fall-off from focus is gentle and smooth, with an organic quality to it. There is very little color fringing, coma tails, or distortion.
