The Set

The SUMMILUX-C cine lenses are comprised of 12 focal lengths from 16 mm to 135 mm.

Focusing

The biggest complaint about 35 mm cinema lenses has always been their large size intended to accommodate a focus ring with more witness marks.

The SUMMILUX-C lenses feature a patented focusing mechanism that eschews the logarithmic focusing of the past by expanding the focus scale in the most critical range.

Fast, compact and lightweight

At T 1.4 and averaging only 1.7 kg per lens, the SUMMILUX-C lenses are the smallest set of fast aperture, purpose-built prime lenses available for cinematography. Their patent focus design allows for a long focus throw even on these compact lenses.

Size

Their unique design allows these cine lenses to be far smaller than any existing lenses below T2.0. At just 5.6” (142 mm) long and weighing between 3.5 and 4 pounds (1.6-1.8 kg), lens changes are easier and safer than ever, which is welcome news for camera assistants and hurried productions. Smaller lenses also result in smaller, lighter camera packages and cases as well as significantly smaller rigs.

Light Path

The use of exotic aspherical elements in each SUMMILUX-C lens creates a telecentric path of light from the rear element to the sensor. Telecentricity and aspheric correction not only reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing, but also create a more even illumination across the entire field. Add in an already large image circle and the SUMMILUX-C lenses are the perfect companions for larger digital sensors like RED’s Dragon sensor.
