Master Prime Lenses

The Master Prime Lenses are both fast and have an optical performance surpassing that of all standard speed primes. There are new creative opportunities with these lenses, making shots possible that would have been considered impossible before. The Master Primes have been co-developed by ARRI and ZEISS, are manufactured by ZEISS, and are sold exclusively by ARRI.

Features

  • 16 high speed prime lenses (T1.3)
  • 12 - 150 mm
  • Higher resolution & contrast
  • No geometric distortion
  • Dramatically reduced flare
  • Virtually no breathing

Quotes

I love the way the Master Primes are – one of the best lenses probably ever made…they allow you to have clean images, and that I like very much.

Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki ASC, AMC (known for: The Revenant, Gravity, Birdman, Children of Men and many more)

The ARRI/ZEISS Master Primes are the best lenses I have ever worked with; there seems to be no breathing at all through the focus range.

Cinematographer Karl Walter Lindenlaub, BVK, ASC (known for: Independence Day, Stargate, Moon 44 and many more)

I've long been a fan of ARRI Master Prime Lenses, their optical quality is superb.

Cinematographer Danny Cohen BSC (known for: Les Misérables, The King's Speech, Brexit: The Uncivil War and many more)

The image quality is absolutely beautiful. It is sharp without feeling clinical and neutral in tone.

Cinematographer Roberto Schaefer, ASC (known for: The Kite Runner, The Host, Finding Neverland and many more)
