The Leica Summicron-C 40mm Lens (C- for cinema) features a stainless steel PL mount and provides a smaller, lighter, albeit slower option to the renowned Summilux-C series of lenses. Projecting a useable image circle of 36mm in diameter, it is compatible with a variety of cameras that have sensors that are slightly larger than Super 35. The T2.0 maximum aperture is consistent among the range, so there is no concern about exposure variations when cutting between Summicron-C lenses.
Each lens incorporates geared focus and iris control rings, which share the same position, so swapping lenses can be done without having to adjust your follow focus or lens control system. Matched dimension in set has all focal lenghs except 15mm and 135mm.
