TLS was showing their new Vega full frame cine primes at NAB 2019. TLS are primarily known for their work rehousing lensess 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.
