T Series Anamorphic Lenses

T Series Anamorphic Lenses

The T Series lenses build on Panavision’s long tradition of designing and developing high-quality anamorphic lenses for motion picture. They combine new optical layouts with mechanical advances from the G series, but have a larger sweet spot and focus closer than some of their predecessors. Optical features of the T Series lenses include high contrast, well balanced aberration control, excellent glare resistance, tightly controlled anamorphic squeeze ratio, and minimal breathing.
