The Lense
that Changed

the World

The Pioneer optics

The first W. series in production uses the Hasselblad medium format glasses. It was these pioneering lenses that were used by the Apollo mission, resulting in space photography that has changed the way we see the world and ourselves.

Multi-Format Lenses

The focal lengths of the lenses range from 30 – 500mm, catering from to Super35 to the Arri Alexa 65, Red Vista Vision, Sony Venice and other large format and full format imaging sensors without vignetting or distortion. WPO ts70 series image circle is 82mm. The lenses are available in PL, EF and E-mount.

The set comes as prime or additional Tilt-Swing mechanism (max. 9 degrees) which is simple to lock and release. The front diameter of the lenses throughout the set maintains the same consistency making it ideal for accessory use (114mm). The set offers a sharp yet pleasingly balanced and smooth look that is only possible from using handmade legendary glass.
