  1. Mamiya 200mm T2.9 PL Mount with Duclos Lenses Cine-Mod

    200mm Cine Lens

    This is a Mamiya 200mm f/2.8 APO lens that has been modified for cinema use by Duclos Lenses. It has been fitted with an Arri PL mount, front 77mm threads with a standard 80mm O.D., the iris dampened and de-clicked, and a standard 0.8 mod focus gear added.  This telephoto lens is a great way to expand any cinema prime lens kit. 

    The lens was designed to cover medium format, making it very well-suited for full frame and larger sensors, with exceptional sharpness corner-to-corner. Vignetting is almost nonexistent, even wide open. Close focusing is limited to 2.5 meters (8.2 feet), if you’ll be using this lens for extreme closeups or macro work, we advise adding a PL extension tube or using diopters.

  2. SLR Magic Anamorphic 1.33x PL Lens Set

    338309124722

    The SLR Magic Anamorphot 1.33x anamorphic 3-lens set with PL mount is the only anamorphic lens set that’s priced to be within reach of independent filmmakers and medium-budget commercials.  All three lenses are designed to create 2.35:1 ultra-widescreen images on cameras with super 35-sized sensors. The 50mm and 70mm lenses also cover full frame.

    The lenses are PL mount, and can easily be adapted to shoot on Sony E mount. They have a uniform 82mm front filter thread.

    The kit includes SLR Magic Anamorphot-Cine 1.33x 35mm T2.4 PL, SLR Magic Anamorphot-Cine 1.33x 50mm T2.8 PL, SLR Magic Anamorphot-Cine 1.33x 70mm T4 PL, and a hard case.

    Until now, budget anamorphic meant using an anamorphic adapter with a separate taking lens. Using a complete system prevents optical alignment problems and greatly simplifies focus. The SLR Magic specialized coating emphasizes the horizontal “blue streak” type flare from bright highlights.

    These lenses are fully manual and have no electronic communication with the camera. You must adjust aperture and focus manually. You may want to consider renting a follow focus and rails system. The unique front-element focus rotates and extends while focusing, making matte boxes inadvisable for this kit.

  3. Metabones PL-E Mount Cine Adapter

    The Metabones PL to E Mount Adapter will connect any PL cinema lens to any Sony E mount camera. The adapter has no electronic contacts, and all lens features must be controlled manually. The adapter will work with full frame as well as Super 35mm lenses, but you should confirm that your lenses’ imaging circle will cover your camera’s sensor.

    This adapter pairs very well with our Anamorphic Lens Set and Sony FS7.

  4. Zeiss CP2 3-Lens Set PL Mount

    cp-2-lens-rental-pl

    Zeiss CP.2 lenses have become a standard for film and television productions.  These cinema primes are a perfect pairing with a cinema camera with PL mount.  Choose your three lenses from any of our rental stock for maximum versatility.

    Shooting on a matching lens set means your shots will all have the same color, contrast, and look.  The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  These lenses are fully manual, and the barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. They have imperial markings (in feet). We include a hard case.

    Lenses we regularly stock:

    Zeiss CP.2 21mm T2.9 PL
    Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.1 PL
    Zeiss CP.2 28mm T2.1 PL

    Zeiss CP.2 35mm T1.5 PL
    Zeiss CP.2 50mm T1.5 PL
    Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 PL
    Zeiss CP.2 100mm T2.1 PL

    338309124722
