CW Sonderoptic’s showcased the Leica Summicron-C compact prime lenses at NAB 2014, which “…put the most modern design and manufacturing techniques into the service of creating a timeless set of lenses which manage to capture the creamy texture of the world without sacrificing sharpness and contrast.” The “little brother” of the fine Summilux line, the Summicron brings the same manufacturing quality and reliability that end users of the Leica brand come to expect!
The image quality of these significantly lighter and compact design lenses, rival other high-end cinema lens manufacturers. These lenses are a wonderful option when performing longer hand-held shooting assignments when the weight of the camera needs to be kept at a minimum. The Leica Summicron-C cine lenses are comprised of six focal lengths (all T2.0): 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. and can be purchased or rented at a decent price!
“The Leica Summicron-C prime lenses put the most modern design and manufacturing techniques into the service of creating a timeless set of lenses which manage to capture the creamy texture of the world without sacrificing sharpness and contrast.”
Each Leica Summicron-C lens is housed in a common 95mm front barrel diameter and is 101mm long. Because of their uniform size and shape, motors, matteboxes and rod-mounted accessories don’t need to be repositioned. The Leica Summicron-C lenses were designed and manufactured to allow for the full creative and technical potential of larger sensor cameras.
