Angeniux made/makes primarily cine lenses. When I was shooting TV newsfilm, we 
had ONE of them. It was a superb lens, and it was a 10X zoom. I know how you 
feel.  The sad thing was that we only had one sound-on camera and it got the 
Angemieus, we shot mostly  B&H silent cameras, with really crappy lenses. Not 
CCTV crappy, but only a step up.

I had one of the first X 2 zoom lenses that Leica thought « acceptable » in 
their eyes, it was called ANGENIEUX 35 x 2  f2.5  - Sold it a couple of years 
back to a guy in Taiwan, but it is a lens I will ALWAYS remember as WOW - no 
Canon, Nikon, Leica, Oly, Fuji ever matched its signature and bokeh, sorry for 
me to say.

I also had the 70 x 3 of that brand - mine is. now in mainland China - which 
immediately urged me to dump the leica equivalent I had, a b…y  pump zoom that 
never was sharp, just as other brands' were too. Minolta design???

OTT - Oly zooms of that era when not as good, far from it. And Canon and even 
worse Nikon’s (distortion, vignetting, etc) where hopeless …

I won’t get into second to nth grade Tamron or Vivitar or Tokina’s territories 
… horrible memories of these … BAD, no EXCUSE whatsoever :-(
