The ZEISS Supreme Primes were designed to provide consistent coverage, color rendering, aperture, size, weight and ergonomics. All the lenses across the family cover sensors from Super 35 and smaller to full frame and beyond (FF+). The Supreme Prime lenses are color matched across the full range and most feature a fast T-stop of T1.5.
Most of the lenses feature a 95mm front diameter, however, the 15mm, 18mm, 135mm, 150mm, and 200mm all have a larger 114mm front. All the lenses have standardized positioning of the focus and iris rings that allow for fast and easy equipment changeout.
