What’s Changed? The Atlas Orion 40mm T2 2x Anamorphic Prime Silver Edition differs from the standard edition in a couple of key areas. Flares take on the color of your light source, giving you more flexibility in getting the look you want. This is in contrast to the standard editions, which produce a blue-tinged flare. Additionally, Atlas has optimized the air spaces between the lens elements to provide a different focus fall-off. The standard edition lenses have the target optimized through-focus set for 50% fore and 50% aft, while the Silver Edition lenses have the through-focus optimized to land with best focus 25% into depth of the target focus, with a smooth 75% fall-off behind the target focus.
The Anamorphic Look. The Atlas Orion Anamorphic Prime Silver Edition lenses provide a clean, oval shaped bokeh you might expect out of more expensive anamorphics. The Orions produce a unique but well-controlled anamorphic lens flare. If you want that J.J. Abrams look, this lens will give it to you. Shining a light toward the lens in the frame will produce a wonderful flare that goes almost edge to edge depending on light strength. Unlike the standard edition of this lens, the Silver Edition has a neutral flare characteristic that assumes the color of your light source.
Standardized Features. All the Orion Anamorphic lenses have the same front lens diameters, and focus and iris ring positions. This allows for super-fast lens changes just by swinging your matte box and dropping your follow focus without moving their positions. Markings in feet appear on both sides making it easy for ACs and focus-pullers to do their jobs. The entire Orion series boasts the same industry-prevalent 0.8 pitch gears and 114mm front diameters.
Compatibility. While this lens is designed for Super 35 sensor type cameras, the 31mm image circle may not provide full sensor coverage on all S35 cameras, depending on your recording format.
