At NAB Las Vegas 2014, LockCircle will premiere the new line of Prime Circle XM cinema lenses with manual aperture control.

The new line of lenses is designed for the high demanding of EF-Mount (Canon) and F-Mount (Nikon) with cine-style expanded focus mark spacing and aperture index on both sides of the lens barrel!

These lenses are built around Zeiss high quality optics for extra-sharp color matched images and harmonious (real cinema look here!) bokeh for magic "out of focus" pastel backgrounds.

Focus barrel is really smooth and consistent to offer great focus feeling and the aperture ring is geared for dynamic exposure control. 

Every Prime Circle XM lens is calibrated and engraved (one to one) in LockCircle optical lab (Lake Como - Italy) to offer ultra precise follow focus work.

Nine spectacular focal lengths are available:  15/2,8 -  21/2,8 - 25/2,0 - 28/2,0 - 35/1,4 - 50/1,4 - 85/1,4 - 100/2,0 Makro - 135/2,0 Apo.

The XM Series features cinema standard 95mm front mount and 90mm filter thread (step down rings are available), full-frame 24 x 36mm coverage and "velvet-black" or "silver magic" (matching exactly BMCC) finish. Stainless steel high-grade bayonet precision manufacturing for many years of heavy-duty filmmaking.

The mount is interchangeable between EF-Mount and F-Mount in less than 2 minutes.Available in metric or imperial scales.
