The choice of lenses – both old and new and everything in between – is impressive. I was able to find and adjust the right line of lenses for each of my shows, and Panavision’s support and expertise have proven to be an incredible asset, making the production process both liberating and creatively stimulating.” – Manuel Billeter (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the upcoming Iron Fist)

I have a wonderful set of lenses, the G Series anamorphic prime lenses from Panavision (on Animal Kingdom). We get incredible flares. The way the light behaves when it hits the lens, things that people might consider a flaw, is really wonderful.

They help me to achieve the look I want for each project by suggesting the best gear for the job. That assistance in formulating my approach is invaluable, and fuels my creative process.

Panavision is an icon to us. Just saying we were shooting on Panavision made us (director Jeff Nichols) grin and tremble in fear all at the same time. We knew we had to bring our 'A-Game' to Mud, because we were about to shoot on some hallowed equipment.

The 70mm Primos are beautiful – just amazing! I have never seen lenses that hold their sharpness and contrast across the entire frame. … They are also light, fast and the lens sizes in the kit are perfect. The two zooms we used are excellent -- incredibly close to the primes.

It’s the glass. No matter what camera body or format I choose, Panavision glass has always been the best. I’ve never worked with anything that comes close to what they do with their lenses. And Dan Sasaki is a lens genius. He can explain the mechanics and tweak the glass in ways I’d never imagined.

This was my first big gig with Panavision. Being at Leavesden, there was a great deal of logic to selecting them, and it turned into an incredible experience! Having them right there helped because everything was on hand and I could do my testing while figuring out how I wanted to shoot things.
