Arri/Zeiss Ultra Primes have the widest focal range of any prime lens set available to cover every cinematic need: from the unique Ultra Prime 8R extreme wide angle lens to the best telephoto lens designed specifically for motion pictures, the Ultra Prime 180 mm, giving you the flexibility to get the coverage you want.
Ultra Primes retain their excellent image quality even at close focus across the whole Super 35 frame. The Ultra Primes are lightweight standard speed lenses that are a perfect optical match to the high speed Master Primes.
With the ULTRA PRIME lenses, Carl Zeiss introduced and perfected an effective means against floating elements. This is a design principle in which lens groups move in relation to each other during focusing, thereby correcting image area curvature. This principle must be taken into account not only in the optical design but also in the highly precise construction of the mechanical components. Both were achieved for the new ULTRA PRIME lenses allowing for close-up setting possibilities almost up to the front element of these lenses.
