The Leica Summicron-C lenses are composed of the natural focus transitions, authentic color rendition and creamy sharpness that is distinctive to the Leica look and feel, but built in a smaller, more accessible package.
*This lens set includes the 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm focal lengths*
The Leica Summicron-C lenses are as well suited for big budget feature films and TV shows as they are production companies and growing businesses looking for a beautiful set of lenses to invest in that will provide a timeless and workable image for all kinds of productions.
The Leica Summicron-C lenses have a unique yet familiar way of rendering skin tones that feel natural and has depth. The focus falls off gently to give a dimensionality to faces and other organic subjects. Yet their ability to cleanly resolve edges and other fine details makes them one of the most versatile sets of cine lenses available.
NATURAL, CONSISTENT COLOR RENDITION
The Leica Summicron-C lenses feature custom coatings that strive to transmit the color of the subject without painting the image with their own hue. Capturing what you see as you see it can save considerable time in post production. Also, starting from a natural image allows a world of flexibility when you do want to manipulate the image afterward.
EDGE-TO-EDGE FOCUS AND ILLUMINATION
The Leicaa Summicron-C lenses are one of the newest lines of purpose-built cine lenses available and were designed with larger digital sensors in mind. As such they have a significantly larger image circle to maximize the increased sensor size and resolution available to modern cinematographers while maintaining illumination and holding focus all the way into the corners of the frame. Each lens offers an image circle wider than 35mm in diameter, big enough to easily cover the newest sensors from RED, Sony, and ARRI.
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.
The classic linear focus scale of the Leica 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.
Advances in cine lens design allow the Leica 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.
