Rental outfit MovieTech has purchased a set of Canon K35 PL Mount lenses that are more than 30 years old.

The lenses were used on numerous feature films, including Aliens, and are intended for use with MovieTech’s Arri Alexa and Sony F55 and F65 cameras.

Managing director John Buckley said: “This was a valuable investment for us.

“These lenses have a look and feel that can’t be replicated, and we’re seeing huge appetite among film-makers and creatives seeking to achieve a different look.”

The purchase was arranged through Azule Finance.
