At the CAMERIMAGE International Film Festival in Toruń, Poland, ZEISS is set to unveil their Supreme Prime Radiance lenses, a new set of seven high-end cinematography lenses based on the high-speed ZEISS Supreme Prime lens family with the benefit of the new T blue coating. This special coating is said to offer a distinctive look with consistent flares across all focal lengths. The Supreme Radiance Primes are available as a set of seven focal lengths of between 21 and 100 millimeters, all with a maximum aperture of T1.5. They feature a front diameter of 95 millimeters with consistently positioned focus and aperture rings weighing around 1,500 grams on average.
With an image circle diameter of 46.3 millimeters, they cover the current large-format cinematography sensors and are compatible with camera models such as the Sony Venice, ARRI Alexa LF and Mini LF, and RED Monstro. The lenses are equipped with the ZEISS eXtended Data metadata technology to provide frame-by-frame data on lens vignetting and distortion in addition to the standard metadata provided using the Cooke /i technology1 protocol. This simplifies and speeds up workflows, particularly for VFX and Virtual Production.
The ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses are available to order from announcement until March 31st, 2020. The seven focal lengths – 21 mm T1.5, 25 mm T1.5, 29 mm T1.5, 35 mm T1.5, 50 mm T1.5, 85 mm T1.5 and 100 mm T1.5 – are available exclusively as a set from ZEISS Cinema dealers and will be delivered from April 2020 after the end of the ordering period.
