Since their introduction in the 1980s, E Series anamorphic primes have been a favorite for many cinematographers. Building on the success of the C Series, the E Series offers improved optical quality, more sophisticated anti-reflection coatings, newer spherical components, and a refined optical formula with fewer aberrations. The E Series delivers an overall clean look without being too clinical or too sharp.
