ZEISS recently announced their new Supreme Prime Radiance lenses, a series of lenses based on their high speed Supreme Prime lens family with a new T*blue coating, which offers a distinctive look and consistent flares without any compromises. We stopped by the ZEISS Cinema Demo Lens Center here in Los Angeles to speak to Snehal Patel for a full rundown on the new lenses and see for ourselves their striking new look.
ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses enable cinematographers to create beautiful, consistent and controlled flares in the image while maintaining contrast and avoiding transmission loss. Yet, they offer all attributes of a modern cinema lens: large-format coverage, high speed, robustness and smooth and reliable focus – all in a small, light-weight package.
ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses come as a seven-lens set: 21mm, 25mm, 29mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 100mm – all T1.5. Although being slightly warmer than regular Supreme Primes, they pair very well with them. That’s why Zeiss deliberately went without the extreme focal lengths on both ends of the range that the regular Supremes offer. Just mix and match as you see fit.
The ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses are available to order right now 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. The lenses will be delivered from April 2020 after the end of the ordering period.
