We are excited to offer you Leica’s new line of PL mount prime lenses, the Summicron-C™ . Following the success of their top of the line Summilux-C lenses , Leica has designed their new set to be 30% shorter and 20% lighter as well as one stop slower (T2 versus T1.4 for the Summilux), in order to offer greater flexibility to cinematographers everywhere, notably in handheld or Steadicam operations. Featuring an image circle greater than 35mm, the Leica Summicron-C lenses are a great match for the RED Epic Dragon sensor in 6K mode, as well as all other high end digital cameras (Alexa XT, Sony F55, Red Epic X). Each Leica Summicron-C lens, just as their sister line the Summilux, share a uniform length (101mm), 95mm threaded lens front, advanced distance focus scales, and similar location of focus and iris rings allowing for quick adjustments and  without the need to reposition motors, matteboxes or  rod-mounted accessories.
