Now Available: Full 12-lens set of Leica Summilux-C Primes

full set leica summilux-c primes

We’re very excited to announce that we are now stocking a full 12-lens set of Leica Summilux-C Primes, available to hire from both our Newcastle and London offices.

The lenses are very rare, with only a handful of full sets available for rental in the UK.

What are the Leica Summilux-C Primes?

The Leica Summilux-C Primes are a ground breaking new line of PL mount primes that are designed to deliver ultra-high optical performance for both film and digital cameras.

The lenses are not only some of the fastest around but are designed to work their best when wide-open. The full set is comprised of 12 focal lengths, from 16mm to 135mm while a unique focusing mechanism also expands the focus scale in the most critical range.

Why are the Leica Summilux-C Prime Lenses so special?

Basically, these lenses are lightweight, small in size and fast.

The Leica Summilux-C Primes are also the first to feature a patented small diameter focus scale. Every mark on every lens is calibrated and engraved individually.

The scales on each lens in the set match each other identically – unlike in any other prime lens sets. This means it is much simpler and quicker to change from one lens to another.

Why did we get a full set of Leica Summilux-C Primes?

We’re constantly updating our equipment stock to make sure you (our customers) have access to the best possible kit. The Leica Summilux-C Prime lens set is one of the most in-demand in the country and we know that the DoPs and camera operators that we work with are going to love working with them.

We’ve already seen a huge demand for the lenses, from a range of productions. For more details, or to enquire about hiring the set, contact us on 0207 998 0490 (London) or 0191 265 0061 (Newcastle). Alternatively you can email bookings@picturecanning.co.uk
