The high-end Cinema Zoom lens series Premista will be expanded with a third lens. The wide-angle Fujinon Premista19-45mmT2.9, like the already available 28-100mm and 80-250mm zooms, is designed for large format sensors with a 43.2-46.3mm diagonal and is attached via PL. It offers a continuous luminous intensity of T2.9 over the entire focal length range and is said to have low distortion even in the wide angle.
With a length of 230mm and a weight of 3.3Kg it is both slightly shorter and lighter than the other two Premista Zooms, but the front diameter remains the same (114mm) and also the lens rings are in the same position to facilitate lens changes even in fully rigged setups with mattebox and focus pull.
Again, the focus range is 280°. The back focus can be adjusted to compensate for shifts due to temperature fluctuations. The aperture consists of 13 blades. Lens metadata can be recorded thanks to support for ZEISS eXtended Data.
The Fujinon Premista19-45mmT2.9 is scheduled for release in early 2021 at an as yet undisclosed price (as a guide: the Premista 28-100mm costs around 34,000 Euros net).
