Leica-R's available for rent now!
We're pleased to announce that we've got a new set of lenses available for rent. The 5 lens set of Cine-Modified Leica-R's provides that distinctive 'Leica look' in an affordable and lightweight package.
These high-quality photo lenses have been cine-modified by Duclos Lenses in California. They come with uniform 80mm fronts, secure EF mount, hard-mounted focus gears and de-clicked iris rings. Leica is renowned for having the best witness marks and longest barrel rotation amongst the high-level photo lenses, meaning that these lenses are on par with cine-style PL lenses in many regards. The 19mm Elmarit is widely considered to be one of the best wide-angle lenses ever made (4 stars from Chasseurs d'images).
The five lens set consists of:
- 19mm Elmarit f2.8
- 24mm Elmarit f2.8
- 35mm Simmulux f1.4
- 50mm Simmulux f1.4
- 80mm Simmulux f1.4
We'll be sure to post some screen grabs of some footage soon!
The EF mount means that these lenses are also available for you Canon shooters out there. Available for C300, 7D, 60D etc. (no 5Dii due to interference between the Leica's deep flange and the mirror on full frame cameras)
