Aperture
The T2.0 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.
Focusing
The classic linear focus scale of the 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.
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. Only 4” (101 mm) long and weighing between 2.9 and 3.4 pounds (1.3-1.6 kg), these lenses are perfect for stabilized rigs, aerial cinematography, underwater cinematography, and stereoscopic 3D.
Enlaged "Super 35"
Digital camera sensors are getting physically larger and the SUMMICRON-C lenses are ready to perform. Each lens offers an image circle wider than 35mm in diameter, big enough to easily cover sensors from RED Helium 8K S35 and GEMINI 5K S35, Sony and ARRI Alexa f 16:9 mode formats without performance loss in the corners or vignetting.
