Angenieux Optimo DP Zoom Pair. 16-42/T2.8 and 30-80/T2.8 lightweight and compact PL mount zoom lens pair.

These are designed for digital cameras only and CANNOT be used with film cameras or cameras with a mirror - this is because the lens design has the position of the rear element behind the rear lens mount, and this will damage film cameras and Pro-35 adapters, so beware!.
