18mm Arri/Zeiss Master Prime T1.3

18mm Arri/Zeiss Master Prime T1.3


The 18mm Master Prime is one in a set of 16 from ARRI/Zeiss featuring excellent resolution, advanced contrast, almost no breathing, and a fast T1.3 aperture for achieving shallow depth of field. Ranging from 12mm to 150mm, the Master Primes offer the skin tones and color rendition for which Zeiss is noted, and are color-matched for consistency across the set. These lenses incorporate an iris with at least nine blades for cinematic-looking bokeh with distinct focus fall-off. Dual floating elements provide optimal close-focus performance while minimizing breathing when focusing. The advanced T*XP coating reduces reflections and glare while improving contrast.

This 18mm Master Prime Lens features a 14" minimum focus distance, focus marks set in feet, a relatively light weight of 4.9 pounds, and a compact length of 8". This family of lenses feature consistent placement of focus, iris, and zoom rings for easier use with follow focus, zoom control, and F/I/Z wireless systems. Most of the lenses in the Master Prime family, including the 18mm, have a uniform 114mm front diameter, enabling the use of the same size matte box adapter, filter, etc.
