Overview

Overview

The Summicron-C primes are the newest addition to the Leica cine lens family. They are about 30% shorter and 20% lighter than the Summilux-C primes. All lenses in this family include an aperture of T2.0, PL mounts, 95mm front diameters, and are 101 mm/ 4" long (except for the 135mm and the 15mm, which are longer). Summicron-C lenses were designed to color match and intercut with the Leica Summilux-C lenses. 

The image circle is greater than 34mm on these prime lenses making them a ideal match for the RED DRAGON sensor in 6K mode.

Their lightweight and compact design make them easy to pack in one small lens case for transport. There are currently 11 focal lengths offered 15mm, 18mm, 21mm, 25mm, 29mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 135mm. 

Key features of the 18mm T2.0 lens:

  • T2.0-T22
  • Close Focus 1' / .3m
  • Focus Rotation 300°
  • Iris Rotation 180°
  • Image Circle 36mm
  • Length 4.6" / 118mm
  • Front Diameter 95mm / 3.7"
  • Weight 4.1 lb / 1.8 kg

Aperture

The T2.0 Leica 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. 

Size

Advances in cine lens design allow the Summicron-C lenses to be smaller and more compact than other lenses with comparable performance. Only weighing between 2.9 and 3.4 pounds (1.3-1.6kg), these lenses are perfect for stabilized rigs, aerial cinematography, underwater cinematography, and stereoscopic 3D.

Image Circle

Digital camera sensors are getting physically larger and the Leica Summicron-C lenses are ready to perform. Each lens offers an image circle wider than 35mm in diameter, big enough to easily cover the newest sensors from RED, Sony and ARRI.

Focusing & Award Winning Imagery

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. 

Creamy Sharpness

Like the Summilux-C lenses, the Leica Summicron-C lenses have a unique yet familiar way of rendering skin tones that feels natural and has depth. The focus falls off gently to give a dimensionality to faces and other organic subjects. Yet their ability to cleanly resolve edges and other fine details makes them one of the most versatile sets of cine lenses available.

Natural & Consistent Color Rendition

The Summicron-C lenses feature custom coatings that strive to transmit the color of the subject without painting the image with their own hue. Capturing what you see as you see it can save considerable time in post production. Also, starting from a natural image allows a world of flexibility when you want to manipulate the image afterward.

Edge-To-Edge Focus & Illumination

The Summicron-C lenses are one of the newest lines of purpose-built cine lenses available and were designed with larger digital sensors in mind. As such they have a significantly larger image circle to maximize the increased sensor size and resolution available to modern cinematographers while maintaining illumination and holding focus all the way into the corners of the frame. It includes a focus rotation of 300° and an iris rotation of 180°. It also features high corner-to-corner illumination.
