Band Pro and RED have announced that they will be teaming up to bring a pre-packaged RED Epic setup including 5 of the new Leica Summilux Cine lenses. I had a chance to check these lenses out this morning and I can’t think of a better combination. The Epic is so small that putting a Zeiss Master Prime on it looks pretty crazy, but the Leica Cine lenses are also small and seem like a perfect partnership to the Epic to maintain the portable size. No info yet on exact pricing, configuration or availability of these packages but you can bet it’s not for a looooong time as demand for these on their own is outpacing production.
Here’s some shots of the beautiful Leica Summilux Cine lenses on various cameras including the EPIC.
