CW Sonderoptic represents the highest quality available for the most demanding motion picture environments. Founded in 2008 to design, manufacture and market Leica-branded cine lenses for film, television and commercial production, the “CW” stands for “Cine Wetzlar”, a reference to both the company’s mission and legacy. It is based at Leitz Park in Wetzlar, Germany, the original hometown of Ernst Leitz and Leica Camera.
