Leica Lenses Deliver For Band Pro

Band Pro has introduced Leica Summilux-C lenses as a groundbreaking new line of PL mount primes designed to deliver ultra-high optical performance for film and digital capture.
The product of more than three years of development, these new T1.4 close focus primes employ a unique multi-aspheric design and high-precision cine lens mechanics to provide unmatched flat field illumination across the entire 35mm frame and suppression of colour fringing in the farthest corners of the frame with no discernible breathing. These lenses are superior to any lenses Band Pro's team of experts has yet seen.
All Leica Summilux-C lenses share a uniform length, 95mm threaded lens front, advanced distance focus scales, and similar location of focus and iris rings - which allow quick interchange of lenses in a busy production environment. Another unique feature is an integrated net ring threaded into the rear element.
Designed to be lightweight yet rugged, the mount and lens barrel are manufactured from high-strength titanium. Leica Summilux-C lenses weigh between 3.5 and 4.0 pounds (1.6-1.8kg).
Available exclusively worldwide from Band Pro, the lenses will initially be offered in focus lengths of 18mm, 21mm, 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm. Product delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2010. Additional focal lengths will become available in a second phase.
