TLS's very own Vega Lenses

The Vega lenses were originally designed and built to help the filming market’s growing demand for a lens that would be capable of covering the larger full frame digital camera format. We made the Vega project a priority after hearing the requests from our customers. We researched and developed many models before we had the design spot on. Since the launch of the Vega lenses in 2020, the lenses have become more and more popular every year. We have received excellent feedback from those purchasing and using the Vega lenses worldwide.

The Vega lenses are professionally built all in house at TLS headquarters, using Nikon glass, by TLS trusted lens technicians. The Vega housing is built using the same steps as TLS’s renowned rehousing process. Therefore, there is 300 degrees focus rotation and solid stainless-steel stops on both focus and iris movement.

They have accurate and repeatable dual focus scales, available in both imperial and metric. The integrated anti-backlash cam system means you will not get any image shift and your focus markings will repeat reliably. The spacing of the focus marks is also helped by using a non-linear cam and as a result, whether pulling focus close or at longer distances you will hit the mark every time.

The Vega lenses, although sharp, have a beautiful smooth look with a tiny amount of fall off towards the corners. They also have a stunning bokeh as a result of their 16-blade circular iris and when wide open, can offer a very narrow depth of field.

The Vega lenses are available in a set of ten lenses, including 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 58mm, 85mm, 105mm and 135mm focal lengths, ranging from T1.5 to T2.

See below a lens test demonstration of the full range of Vega lenses.
