The Aurora 24-70mm T2.8 is a cinema zoom lens, made by TLS, a company that specializes in rehousing lenses for the film and television industry. The Aurora is based on a Nikon lens, that has been rehoused with a PL mount and gearing to make it suitable for professional use.
The lens is sharp across the frame, even at wide apertures, and it has very low chromatic aberration. It also has a very smooth creamy bokeh, which is ideal for portraits and other creative shots.
The Aurora pairs well with its sister lens the Morpheus 80-200mm T2.8. The Aurora's wide-angle range is perfect for capturing landscapes, interiors, and group shots, while the Morpheus's telephoto reach is ideal for shooting close-ups and portraits. The two lenses can be used together to cover a wide range of focal lengths, making them a versatile option for any filmmaker.
