Designed for motion picture productions shot in 8K VistaVision, the Leitz ELSIE 21mm T2.1 LPL Mount Cine Lens features an ARRI LPL mount and provides the painterly bokeh and crisp resolution that the company is known for. Projecting a usable image circle of 46.5mm in diameter, it is compatible with the ARRI ALEXA LF and LF Mini camera bodies. The T2.1 maximum aperture is consistent among the range, so there is no concern about exposure variations when cutting between the lenses in the set.
A 270° focus rotation makes for accurate focus pulls. Each lens incorporates geared focus and iris control rings that share the same position among every lens in the set, so swapping lenses can be done without adjusting your follow focus or lens control system. The 21mm lens has a close focus of 1.1', weighs only 5.3 lb, and features lens markings in feet.
Engineered to resemble the look of the M lenses, the ELSIE lens creates a pleasant blur and tasteful vignette effect toward the edge of the frame. It offers a similar image quality and feel as the Leitz Zoom series.
Standardization throughout the Set
Designed to facilitate quick swaps without time-consuming adjustments to the lens control system, this series has standardized its geared control rings for the iris and focus. The T2.1 aperture is also consistent across the collection. A wide 46.5mm image circle is produced by each of the ELSIE lenses.
Designed specifically to accommodate large-format digital sensors, the LPL mount is an upgrade to the PL mount. ARRI eliminated the space reserved for mechanical shutters and widened the mount's diameter to 62mm.
Cooke /i and LDS-2
Automatically record metadata like focus setting, T-stop, and depth of field. Synced to timecode, this data is invaluable for post-production and enables on-set crew resources to be assigned elsewhere.
