New set of LEITZ PRIMEs and LEITZ ZOOMs

Lens manufacturer Ernst Leitz Wetzlar GmbH showcased its latest development, LEITZ PRIMEs and LEITZ ZOOMs for the first time officially at this year’s NAB.

Best known for its prime lenses, SUMMILUX-C, SUMMICRON-C, M 0.8, and THALIA, the company is now expanding with a new family of next-generation optics and is entering new ground with its first set of the premium LEITZ ZOOMs.

The new lenses are available with PL- and LPL-Mount options including metadata interface Cooke /i and ARRI LDS-2.

To even improve close focus abilities of LEITZ PRIMEs and ZOOMs new achromatic diopters MACROLUX 114 have also been added to the product line up. Like MACROLUX 95, the MACROLUX 114 will be available with strengths +0,5, +1 and +2. They will fit lenses with a 114 mm front diameter and are stackable to enhance the effect without adding any chromatic aberration to the lens. Additionally step down rings to either 110mm or 95mm have been designed to make the diopters usable on these front diameters.
