TLS: rehousing Canon K35 lenses
GTC sponsor True Lens Services (TLS) is pleased to announce the latest development in its rehousing project of the Canon K35 lens series.
The 18mm, 24mm and 35mm lenses are the first in the range of Canon K35 lenses to be converted into TLS cam form. Classed as the most complicated to convert in the series, these three lenses required an intensive design and development process. Remaining in the range are the 50mm, 55mm and 85mm, which are to be completed and released by TLS this autumn. The conversion process will cover all variants in the K35 series.
300 degrees of rotation
The 18mm, 24mm and 35mm Canon K35 lenses have a dual cam system to cover the floating element movement and an extended focus scale with approximately 300 degrees of rotation.
Cam driven focus system
Cam driven focus system and chassis style lens housing allow matte boxes and other accessories to be attached to the front of the Canon K35 lenses, without affecting focus movements. The benefit of zero backlash and image shift give accurate dual focus scales that repeat on direction and change with the cam drive system, giving wide spread and even markings throughout the distance scale.
Long serviceable life
Aluminium alloy, stainless steel, brass and robust construction guarantees a long serviceable life.
