ZEISS Cinema News for February

Introducing the ZEISS Nano Primes

Introducing ZEISS Nano Primes - cinema lenses designed for modern full-frame mirrorless cameras - initially available with Sony E-mount. These lenses offer the highest performance and cinematic look in a small package.

With six focal lengths ranging from 18mm to 100mm, all featuring a consistent high speed of T1.5, the Nano Primes are the go-to choice for diverse cinematic needs. The lenses come with a small and robust real cine lens housing with professional ergonomics, and also have an interchangeable mount, facilitated by the trusted ZEISS IMS. And with a small and lightweight design, they're perfect for shooting on the go or in tight spaces.

The ZEISS Nano Primes can be ordered immediately. The six focal lengths are available individually or as a complete set, including a lens case, at $25,950 from ZEISS Cinema dealers. Deliveries begin in May 2024.

ZEISS Nano Primes are the go-to lenses for everyday: True Cinema. For All.

Versatile cinematic look

ZEISS developed the optical design of the new Nano Primes specifically for mirrorless film cameras. Christophe Casenave, responsible for Cinematography Products at ZEISS explains "Thanks to the close focusing distance and the high speed of T1.5, Nano Primes enable images with an extremely shallow depth of field, even in the wide-angle range. The elegant bokeh and the harmonious focus fall-off ensure a versatile look that meets different artistic requirements, whether for indie productions, documentaries, commercials, series, or feature films." The universally applicable look can also be combined with the high-end lenses of the Supreme Prime family. Casenave adds, "With a similarly gentle sharpness and aesthetic focus fall-off, the Nano Primes are an ideal complement to the Supreme Primes and, in combination, are also ideal for B and C cameras and lower-budget productions."
