RMA Electronics, Inc. has been in business since 1986 – primarily specializing in distribution of industrial video and high end video security products. We sell over 10,000 individual units of machine vision and CCTV lenses each year – with our main visibility through RMAElectronics.com. Our current customers are located in many countries throughout the world – comprising of single end-users, very large OEMs, and everyone in between. Over the past few years, demand has substantially increased in use of various C-Mount type lenses in cinematography and professional video / photography.
Many of these video and photography customers are using Micro Four Thirds mount (M4/3 Mount) cameras, which require the use of a special adapter for using C-Mount lenses. Some of these C-Mount lenses may also also require a minor modification to fit the adapter correctly (although the C-Mount lens models listed on the website do not require any such modification.)
The current Kowa PROMINAR series prime lenses are offered in three focal lengths: 8.5mm (super wide angle), 12mm (wide angle), and 25mm (standard angle). These lenses represent the next-generation of crystal clear optics producing ultra HD resolution by applying high precision aspherical lens elements. Particularly for the 8.5mm model, this design allows for very minimal optical distortion even though it projects a super wide angle of view.
As Kowa’s current largest distributor for their Industrial Lens Division in the U.S., we know the high quality of optics they offer, but we welcome you to also see what some independent third-party reviewers have to say thus far about the Kowa PROMINAR prime lenses.
