TLS was showing their new Vega full frame cine primes at NAB 2019. TLS are primarily known for their work rehousing lenses but they have made quite a few lenses in the past including the Morpheus 80-200/T2.8 and Aurora 24-70/T2.8.

The TLS Vega full frame cine primes consist of:

  • 24mm T1.5

  • 50mm T1.5

  • 85mm T1.5

There are no official specifications about the Vega series and we are yet to find out prices or when they will ship. I had a quick play with the 24mm T1.5 on the show floor and it looks to be a beautiful lens. It has a really nice close focus ability and wide pen it produces very pleasing bokeh.

TLS is also now rehousing the classic Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 lens. The rehousing includes:

  • 110mm common front ring diameter.

  • M105 front filter thread.

  • PL mount; back focus adjustable with standard shims

They are also rehousing Zeiss Mark I Super Speeds, as well as the NEO Super Baltars.
