Leica Summilux-C 29mm T 1.4

The goal of the Leica Summilux-C cine lenses was lofty from the start. Take everything known about modern lens design, then perfect it and beautify it until it reaches the border of impossible. The trick, the magic of these lenses, was to do so without losing the Leica character, the natural color rendition and the kindness of the human face and form. The Summilux-C lenses achieve this goal with their absence of breathing, color fringing and distortion, but where they excel is the alchemy of smooth, soft skin tones and backgrounds bounded by a clarity and resolution that distinguished the subject matter in a powerful but natural way without sacrifice or compromise.

The Leica Summilux-C set of prime cine lenses are comprised of 12 focal lengths from 16mm to 135mm. All lenses are T1.4 and have a consistent front diameter of 95mm, withthe exception of the larger 135mm. The Leica Summilux-C lenses allow the subject to be captured as you see it without significant colour temperature shifts or loss of clarity. All colours retain their natural look and feel with special care being shown to skin tones to keep them humane but without looking over sharp or flat. It’s a characteristic called creamy sharpness that can be seen as well as felt in an image. At T1.4 and averaging only 1.7 kg per lens, the Leica Summilux-C lenses are the smallest set of fast aperture, purpose-built prime lenses available for cinematography. Their patented focus design allows for a long focus throw even on these compact lenses. The unique iris design of the Summilux-C lenses combined with custom coatings gives the out of focus elements a character and a feel that adds depth and texture to the image. Additionally, the blacks and shadows retain a deep, pure saturation that further creates the sense of dimensionality in the image.
