ZEISS Supreme Prime lenses means consistent coverage, color rendering, aperture, size, weight and ergonomics. All the lenses across the family cover full frame and even bigger sensors with an image circle of 46.2 mm. The Supreme Prime lenses are color matched across the full range and most feature a fast T-stop of T1.5.
The small front diameter of 95 mm on almost all lenses and standardized positioning of the focus and iris rings across the whole family facilitate fast and easy equipment changeout. The compact and lightweight design means you enjoy easy and comfortable handling. The ultra-smooth focus rotation of the Supreme Prime lenses even in extreme temperatures allows for small motors to make sure you have an easy setup that's enjoyable to work with.

Efficiency and reliability throughout the entire production
The unique ZEISS eXtended Data technology offers lens metadata critical for VFX-intensive productions and workflows on set. It unifies two data sets: key lens data based on the open Technology standard and supported by a wide range of cameras and accessories, plus ZEISS-specific lens data that contains precise shading and distortion characteristics of the lens. The frame accurate information about focal length, focusing distance, T-stop and depth-of-field enables the camera assistant to work more precisely and eliminates guesswork for the DIT. The ZEISS specific distortion and vignetting data makes shooting grids redundant and accelerates compositing and stitching in post-production.
