Versatile PL-Mount Cine Lens. You can use the Leitz Cine THALIA 30mm T2.9—and every PL-mount lens in Leitz’s THALIA series—on PL-mount professional cine cameras with 65mm, full-frame, VistaVision, and Super 35 sensors, such as the Sony VENICE, RED RANGER 8K VistaVision, Panasonic VariCam LT, ARRI Alexa Mini LF, and Canon C700 GS.
Lens Consistency. A defining characteristic of the THALIA line of lenses is their sharp, focused center with gradual focus fall-off curve toward the edges, which gives images an added depth and dimension, particularly on larger sensors. All of the THALIA lenses have 92mm filter threads, rear filter net holders, 95mm front diameters that let you use standard matte boxes, 270° smooth focus throw for accurate focus pulling with minimal focus breathing, and 0.8 mod gears so that you can easily install a follow-focus system. These common features make THALIA-series lenses easily interchangeable in the middle of your shoot.
Unique Vintage-Film Look. While the Leitz THALIAs aren’t vintage lenses, they produce many appealing image characteristics that come with older lenses. They’re all clear without being overly sharp, and they have smooth and forgiving focus without ever looking soft. They render even, natural, color-accurate skin tones.
Cinematic Bokeh. Each of the THALIA lenses boasts a fifteen-blade aperture that maintains a circular iris through all aperture stops. This produces an extremely pleasing cinematic bokeh effect in which out-of-focus elements of your shot maintain their structure.
