Breathtaking progress in lens design and manufacturing technology has reached a landmark moment, realizing a cinematographer’s dream—the arrival of the Master Prime.

Master Prime lenses are super fast and super speed, offering an optical performance that surpasses any other standard speed prime lens available (as of 2017). Born from a collaboration between ARRI and Carl Zeiss, the Master Primes deliver breathtaking results with revolutionary features: high-speed prime lenses, speed matched at T1.3, with unprecedented resolution, incredible contrast, and virtually zero breathing.

Key Features:

  • Super Fast T1.3 Aperture: Allows shooting in very low light conditions and achieving a shallow depth of field.
  • High Optical Performance: Maintains quality across the entire T-stop range from T1.3 to T22.
  • Virtually Zero Breathing: Ensures consistent focus pulls.
  • Dual Floating Elements Technology: Achieves small minimum focus distances, almost like Macro lenses.
  • Undetectable Lens Breathing: Virtually eliminates lens breathing.
  • Outstanding Close Focus: Enables focus from within inches of the lens front.

Whatever your requirements, the ARRI Zeiss Master Primes open the door to new creative possibilities. They maintain their optical performance in any lighting condition, be it an exterior daytime commercial with vibrant colors and high contrast or an interior night feature film with a romantic candlelit dinner.

Master Primes deliver outstanding optical performance even wide open, which was previously unattainable. This achievement is due to state-of-the-art design, cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, and the use of new exotic glass materials. A breakthrough holographic measuring process was developed specifically for the Master Prime lenses.

The T1.3 widest aperture across the entire set allows for shooting in very low light, reducing lighting requirements and budget. This aperture also enables a very shallow depth of field. The lenses offer exceptional close focus capability, virtually eliminating lens breathing, making them almost like Macro lenses. This allows for shooting at fresh new angles, with previously impossible distances, angles, and focus pulls now achievable.
