While most extenders can only physically fit on a limited range of lenses, the design of the PLx2 accommodates more spherical and anamorphic PL mount lenses than any other doubler on the market. This is achieved by designing the extender with a deep-set optical assembly, thus, making it possible to use lenses with long protruding rear elements.

The PLx2 will mount perfectly to any digital camera with a native PL mount. It will also clear the spinning mirror on ARRI and Aaton 35 mm cameras.
Optically, the PLx2 projects an image circle large enough to cover all commonly used 35 mm formats, including 5K on RED Epic and 4:3 full frame on ARRI Alexa.

Maximum Image Diameter: 34.5 mm
Maximum Input T-Stop: 1.9

Technical specifications


Modern cameras require high quality optics designed and optimized for electronic sensors. PL Extenders increase the focal length of 35 mm PL mount lenses. Our extenders feature high-index, low-dispersion glass and flare optimized systems to ensure the highest possible resolution and contrast with minimal optical degradation. The highly telecentric optical design avoids all micro lens issues.
