New High-Speed, Full-Frame Prime Lenses Added to the High-End ZEISS Supreme Prime Series
Three new high-speed, full-frame prime lenses – an 18 mm T1.5, 40 mm T1.5, and 200 mm T2.2 – have been added to the high-end ZEISS Supreme Prime series of cine lenses. The addition of the new 40 millimeter prime lens with a maximum aperture of T1.5 means that there is now a total of 14 prime lenses available in the series.
“By adding a 40 millimeter lens, we have introduced a surprise member to the ZEISS Supreme Prime family,” said Christophe Casenave, responsible for Cinema Products at ZEISS. “Since launching these lenses, we have been in constant contact with customers worldwide and will continue to work on further enhancing this family. We added the new lens in order to respond flexibly to our customers’ desire to close the gap between the 35 and 50 millimeter focal length.”

Eleven of the 14 lenses have a fast T-stop of T1.5. The lens family is known for its outstanding quality, light weight, and the versatile look of its images.
