Supreme Prime Radiance Lenses

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.

ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses are available in eleven focal lengths: 18 mm, 21 mm, 25 mm, 29 mm, 35 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm, 65 mm, 85 mm, 100 mm and 135 mm – all T1.5. Although being slightly warmer than regular Supreme Primes, they pair very well with them.

    A new coating for a new look: T* blue

    A new coating for a new look: Once we had defined what we wanted to achieve with the look, instead of just uncoating lens elements, we revisited our T* coating formulae and reworked them: the birth of T* blue. By that we not only made sure that the resulting flares can be planned and reproduced but were also able to maintain contrast and avoid transmission loss that one normally experiences with uncoated lens elements.

    Adding more character to your images

    The ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses enable cinematographers to create beautiful and consistent flares but with one key ability – control. This is made possible by our newly developed lens coating T* blue. Under regular lighting, Supreme Prime Radiance render like modern and versatile cinematography lenses. With appropriate lighting however, the lenses start to flare. Cinematographers can decide and plan when they want to create flares rather than relying on unforeseen effects. Overall, Supreme Prime Radiance are a touch warmer than Supreme Primes but still retain all the other features that one might have experienced from using the regular Supreme Prime lenses.Cinematic large-format coverage and high speedThe ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses are designed for cinematic large-format sensor coverage, making them the ideal choice for current and future camera systems.
