Canon K35 Hi-Speed Rehoused

We have a set of TLS rehoused K-35’s, the old vintage glass but in modern housing. This set of lenses won James Friend BSC a BAFTA for his work on the BBC’s Rillington Place.

These hi-speed aspherical lenses were Canon’s answer to the Zeiss Superspeeds. Manufactured in the 1970’s, they were later offered with PL mount for cinema use. One of the first big features to show off their qualities was James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’. The shadows and gritty textures created with the help of these lenses really stand out.

We have one of the few full sets of K35 lenses that also include the super rare 10mm. They are a great option for features, commercials or promos; fast and small lenses with a characteristic look and an almost perfect round iris. They have been one of the most popular lens choices recently.

We also stock the 25-120mm zoom, a really beautiful lens that alongside an extended set of the primes would make a perfect choice for a feature film or drama, with a B camera set available.
