CW Sonderoptic Leica Thalia lenses can work with Panavision DXL, RED 8K VV, Full Frame and Super35.

Although these are not old goals, Leica Thalia lenses offer many of the features that have led filmmakers to combine older lenses with digital sensors.

Images captured with Leica's Thalia prime lenses appear to have added depth, especially on larger sensors, due to a gradual approach that deviates from the curve.

Thalia lenses make the image stand out, being more similar to human vision and different from most images created with modern lenses.


The first Leica Thalia have been manufactured with stainless steel PL mount. An XPL version will be available for ARRI Rental and its new Alexa LF camera.

Thalia lenses have 95mm front diameters, as Leica Summilux-C and Leica Summicron-C lenses.

They work with the same front accessories, such as the Leica Cine MacroLux clamp +0.5, +1, +2 diopters.

Thalia accepts 92mm thread front filters and has a rear net support just like the Summilux-C. Incredibly, most large-format Thalias are actually lighter and shorter than Summicron-C. They are extremely light and small. The mechanical design is consistently, robust and ergonomic.

The 15 blades of iris are completely round at each aperture and create the same bokehs throughout the set of targets. The iris ring is linear: the marks are evenly spaced at all T stops.

Thalia has a new approach mechanism design with soft cams and focus barrels that rotate 270 °. Focus and iris gears are 0.8m standard.

The lens metadata is provided with the / i technology through standard contacts at the 12 o'clock position on the back of the PL mount. I think the metadata will include shading, distortion mapping and geometric correction at a later date. The mechanical design seems to accommodate the mounting adapters and the possibility of additional future mounting options. Ideas about interchangeable lens mounts are under consideration.

The Thalia 55 mm T2.8 Cinema Lens is completely new, built entirely from scratch, to fill the space between 45 and 70 mm. And, above all, the appearance is soft, silky and cinematic.
