Vantage Kowa Cine Prominar Spherical Prime Lenses

Rehoused by True Lens Service (TLS) these lenses were manufactured in the late 1960’s, and are known as the Japanese version of the Super Baltars. Optically, they are sharp with low contrast, and have a cooler colour transition and warmer flare than the Super Baltars.

The Oscar winning Rocky was shot with these beautiful lenses, as well as The Godfather II, and numerous Japanese features.
