Leica Summilux-C lenses are widely regarded as some of the very best glass you can shoot on. A set of 8 Summilux-C lenses are worth a whopping half a million dollars!

Unfortunately this past Sunday, an entire lens set was stolen off of a shoot in Los Angeles. Because the lenses are so rare an expensive, even the FBI has gotten involved.

The set of stolen Summilux-C lenses are owned by CPT Rentals in NY. They’ve put out all the serial numbers for the lenses in hopes that the filmmaking community can help find them.


If you know anything about the theft, or some guy in Griffith Park offers you a great deal on some Summilux Cs, please contact CPT & the authorities.
