Canon K35 Primes
Beautifully rehoused by TLS (True Lens Service), these vintage primes are one of the most sought-after lens sets on the market. The K35s were made in the 70's and 80's as Canon's response to the Zeiss Super Speeds, and they won an Academy Award in 1977 for their optical design. The K35s were used most notably on the films Aliens, American Hustle, Manchester by the Sea, and Barry Lyndon to name a few. Fast and small, the K35s are widely renowned for being absolutely beautiful. They are sharp and have lower contrast than modern primes and have a unique smooth focus quality and color palette with gorgeous purple and orange flares, as well as uniquely striking bokeh and falloff.
We also carry vintage Canon FD lenses that share a very similar optical design and look as the K35s.
