Duclos 70-180mm T3

by: Duclos Lenses

  • Based on the venerable Leica 70-180mm f/2.8. The all new housing designed by Duclos Lenses was done so with careful consideration for professional cinematographers and the motion picture industry. The body is machined from aircraft grade aluminum alloy, anodized black for a lightweight, durable finish. A precision ground stainless steel Arri PL or Canon EF mount allows the Duclos 70-180mm to be natively mounted to a wide variety of cinema cameras including imminent 35mm full frame and Vista Vision systems. Integrated 32-pitch (0.8 mod) zoom, focus, and iris gears and a threaded 3/8-16 lens support, and an 80mm front diameter allow for seamless operation with industry standard accessories.

  • Supplying your own lens? The Leica 70-180mm is a rather rare lens. Because of this, Duclos Lenses will accept customer supplied lenses for the conversion. However, we will strictly enforce a quality control policy. If you're preparing to send a lens in for the conversion, we will inspect and evaluate it upon arrival to ensure that it meets our standards. If we feel that the lens requires maintenance, the customer is responsible for managing service with a Leica specialist prior to the conversion. If you feel that your lens could benefit from some basic maintenance, we strongly recommend having it service by a Leica specialist prior to being sent in for the conversion. If you have any questions regarding the 70-180mm conversion process, don't hesitate to contact us anytime.
