(Atlanta, Georgia--September 3, 2013) Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc. premiered the first prototypes of the new, highly anticipated Summicron cinema lenses at NAB 2013. Band Pro’s Vice President of Technical Services, Jeff Cree, noted that: “this new series of prime lenses provides a low cost alternative to the Leica Summilux-C primes, while maintaining some of the more pleasing attributes that Leica has become known for producing still photography lenses.”
While the lenses are in the final stages of testing at CW Sonderoptic, manufacturers of Leica Summilux-C lenses, this new entry promises to be one of the most popular available. Designed as a PL mount, they will have a T2.0-22 aperture, close focus from 1-feet to 3-4 inches, with a focal length of 101mm and a front flange of 4.0 inches.
Delivery of the new Summicron lenses will start by the end of this year. Pricing is anticipated at $16,000.00 USD. Preorders are currently available through Band Pro’s offices worldwide.
