Project Description

Creating magical, meaningful images is not just about technical specifications and charts. It takes a skilled cinematographer and a lens with the character needed to bring their vision to life.

The Set

The Leica Summicron-C cine lenses are comprised of 6 focal lengths: 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm

Aperture

The T2.0 Leica Summicron-C prime lenses are built with high ASA/ISO digital cameras in mind, offering plenty of depth of field and performance while maintaining a compact size.

Focusing

The classic linear focus scale of the Summicron-C lenses is familiar to camera assistants around the world. Focus rolls in gently allowing for smooth pulls without the unpleasant sudden snap of sharpness.

Size

Advances in cine lens design allow the Summicron-C lenses to be smaller and more compact than other lenses with comparable performance. Only 4” (101mm) long and weighing between 2.9 and 3.4 pounds (1.3-1.6kg), these lenses are perfect for stabilized rigs, aerial cinematography, underwater cinematography, and stereoscopic 3D.

Image Circle

Digital camera sensors are getting physically larger and the Leica Summicron-C lenses are ready to perform. Each lens offers an image circle wider than 35mm in diameter, big enough to easily cover the newest sensors from RED, Sony and ARRI.
