ARRI Rental UK expands lens inventory with modern and vintage glass options

To ensure clientele have a varied and expansive range of lens options ARRI Rental UK has recently invested in expanding the company’s lens portfolio. New additions include the compact and lightweight Leica Summilux-C and Summicron-C lenses, renowned for bringing the image character and quality of Leica stills lenses to the medium of motion pictures. While new anamorphic choices include Cooke Anamorphic/i, Cineovision and Toyo Eiki lens sets, as well as the Angenieux Optimo Anamorphic 30-72 and 56-152 zooms.

Additionally, the company has entered into an agreement with Lester Dunton, under which Dunton’s collection of vintage glass will be made available for hire through ARRI Rental. These include Canon Xtal Xpress, Cooke Xtal Xpress and Zeiss Cinema Speedstar anamorphic lens sets, which are derived from vintage Canon, Cooke and Zeiss lenses that have been rehoused and modified with anamorphic elements. Each new option offers a different look and extends ARRI Rental UK’s existing anamorphic lineup to an impressive choice of 14 different prime lens sets.

Russell Allen, Operations Director of ARRI Rental’s UK camera and grip business, comments, “The agreement with Lester, coupled with our own acquisitions and exclusive technology such as the ALEXA 65 camera system, further demonstrates our mission to provide our clients with a greater creative choice through offering the best and most unique products."
