Cinescope Leica R Full Frame Lenses (TLS)
Rehoused by TLS, the original glass of this set is comprised of vintage Leica R Summilux and Elmarit still lenses. Now in robust, cine-style bodies, these full frame lenses can cover the 36mm x 24mm full frame sensors in the Red 8K Monstro and Sony Venice. With over 300 degrees of focus rotation, zero backlash, and improved close focus, this collection of rehoused lenses offers professionals the warm colors and smooth bokeh of the original signature Leica glass that have made Leica Rs so highly regarded. These Leica R lenses have full frame coverage 36mm x 24mm, making the vast image circle cover almost all cameras and sensors.
Most of the lenses even cover the new Vista Vision sensor. Also have been designed a cam driven focus system and chassis style lens housing allow matte boxes and other accessories to be attached to the front of the lens without affecting focus movements.
The benefit of zero backlash and image shift give accurate dual focus scales that repeat on direction and change with the cam drive system, giving a wide spread of markings through the scale. A major selling point is that due to the complete redesign of the lens, all the lenses have an improved close focus. Aluminium alloy, stainless steel, brass and robust construction guarantees along serviceable life
