Cine Gear: VISTA-M Lenses by T M Camera Solutions

Modern mechanics and Vintage Look

A mix of modern optical performance and function with the character of a vintage lens. The all-new Masterbuilt VISTA-M lenses are Large Format lenses. The entire lens range has an aperture of T1.4 and a flair for flare.
