The latest mystery is revealed. Band Pro and RED hosted a press conference at Band Pro’s booth this morning, on opening day of NAB.
Band Pro–through their offices in Munich, Israel, New York and Burbank–will package a set of Leica Summilux-C Prime Lenses with a RED Epic camera. There will be 5 lenses in the set, and the package will provide savings. These will be the same prime Leica lenses being shown at NAB as ready for production models.
Amnon Band said, “This will combine superb, greater than 4K lenses with a superb, greater than 4K camera.” I imagine cigar smoke filled the room in mogul fashion after Amnon and Jim Jannard agreed on this cooperative effort and what could be, as Louis said to Rick in Casablanca, “the beginning of a new relationship.”
