They make 2x tele-extenders for the bigger film optimos... but can those work on the DP Optimos? The 80mm maximum is not enough.,


Thanks!

They are design-specific to the large Optimos, but there are other 2x extenders that will work. Schneider and Fuji Optical make nice ones.

EDIT: Sorry, just noticed that this is in reference to the Optimo DP lenses, nt standard cine Optimos. The DP lenses have rear elements that protrude deeply into the camera. No way to put ANY doubler on an Optimo DP 16-42 or 30-80.

Thanks Mitch.

I figured as much. Just wish that 80mm telephoto end was just a bit more! A 100 would have been the bee's knees.
