A New Way to Look at Light, Skin Tones and Color
For over 60 years the M full frame lenses have captured unique, iconic images around the world. Now Leitz Cine Wetzlar, sister company to Leica Camera, is bringing the characteristics of these lenses directly to the cinema world with their new M 0.8 lenses. The M 0.8 lenses interpret light and skin tones with a unique sense of clarity, color and charisma. Now it is easier than ever to bring that character to the world of moving pictures.
Leitz selected 5 lenses for this series, choosing the fastest in each focal length. They include: 21mm f/1.4, 24mm f/1.4, 28mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4 and the 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux. The lenses will be available individually or as a set.
Where the M 0.8 lenses truly distinguish themselves is in the look that they deliver to digital cameras. Their character is unlike anything else in the cinema world at this time with an emotional tone to the images that is at once impossible to put into words, yet intimately familiar to the senses. The way the M 0.8 lenses render light, give depth to skin tones, shape highlights and roll off focus bring a new opportunity for creativity to all image seekers.
