CW Sonderoptic has shipped the first sets of serial production Leica Thalia lenses to several customers. The first rental companies to take delivery in Europe include ARRI Rental, RVZ in France, and Ljud & Bildmedia in Sweden. The first sets in the United States arrived last week at TCS in New York and the Los Angeles offices of Keslow Camera and Otto Nemenz International.

Gerhard Baier, managing director, said the new lenses are part of an “evolution of larger format cinematography”.

“With serial production now underway, we look forward to delivering more sets into more markets in the coming weeks and months,” Baier said.
