In the midst of their merger with Division Camera, President of The Camera House, Rufus Burnham commissioned a special project with the engineers and technicians at Duclos Lenses. The result is the Leica Classic-Crons. A customized set of Leica Summicron-C primes with highly modified coatings. The result is a classic, velvety image reminiscent of vintage hollywood optics of yesteryear. Enhanced flares, blooming highlights, and reduced contrast give the Classic-Crons a unique look desired by many cinematographers.
