Band Pro Named International Preferred Reseller of Summicron-C

BURBANK, CA – March 24, 2014 - Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc. has been designated as a Preferred International Reseller of the the new Summicron-C lenses from CW Sonderoptic, makers of the Leica Summilux-C.  

The new T2.0 Summicron-C prime lenses are currently available in 18, 25, 35, 50, 75 and 100 mm focal lengths.  These light, lower cost alternatives to the Summilux-C provide incredible performance that matches or exceeds the competition, with full coverage up to and including the new RED dragon sensor.  The Summicron-C set will grow with additions of 21, 29, and 135 mm focal lengths in the coming year.


In conjunction with this announcement, Band Pro is now accepting applications for International Agents interested in representing Band Pro for Summicron-C lens sales.  Interested parties attending NAB should visit Band Pro in Booth #C10408 for more information.  Additionally, prospective candidates are urged to contact Tanja Decman via email at for immediate consideration.

Summicron-C Technical Specs

Summicron-C lenses all have a maximum aperture of T2.0. Minimum aperture is T22 and there is a totally closed position. All have PL mounts, 95 mm front diameters, and are 101 mm / 4″ long (except the 135 mm, which is longer). Focus and iris barrel gears of Summicron-C and Summilux-C lenses line up in the same position relative to the lens mount, so follow focus and lens motors don’t have to be repositioned when you change lenses.
