CW Sonderoptic - Leica Lenses - THE BIGGER PICTURE

At this event you'll find out how lens designers are responding to cinematographers' pursuit of the big 65 mm picture look.

Learn how right at the centre of this new look comes Leica with a new type of lens that aims to put paid to the ironic practice of sticking old lenses on brand new cameras in search of an organic human look.

Experts from Leica in Germany will show us footage that illustrates how and why they designed the new Thalia lenses with a circular bokeh and images that are not too sharp and not too flat.

Our knowledgeable friends Rainer Hercher and Osamu Tsukada from Leica lens maker, ACS National sponsor CW Sonderoptic will answer any lens questions you have.

RSVP to Ron Johanson ACS and don't miss this great event hosted by CW Sonderoptic and the ACS at the ACS National HQ. Drinks and nibbles provided from 6:30 pm.

RSVP - Sonderoptic & Leica Night - 4th May 6.30pm - 9.30pm
