All About The Magic: Creating magical and 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.

Enlarged Sensor Coverage: The Summicron-C primes cover a 36mm image circle (36mm x 24mm), larger than the typical Super 35 (28mm). They are designed to perform excellently with large-format sensors like the ARRI Alexa Mini LF 4K 16:9 format, Sony Venice, RED Helium 8K, and RED Gemini 5K. These lenses ensure there is no performance loss in the corners or vignetting.

Aperture: With a maximum aperture of T2.0, the Summicron-C prime lenses are built for high ISO digital cameras, offering significant depth of field and performance while maintaining a compact size and weight.

Focusing: The classic linear focus scale of the Leitz Summicron-C lenses is familiar to camera assistants worldwide. With 300° of focus rotation, these lenses provide extremely accurate focus marks and smooth focus pulls without sudden snaps of sharpness.

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

High Optical Performance: Modern lens design and Leica Leitz cine manufacturing processes ensure low distortion, high resolution, and excellent color rendition. The Summicron-C lenses provide a sharp image with a naturalistic bokeh. They are telecentric, reducing illumination fall-off from light hitting the sensor at an angle outside the image circle.
