The ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses enable cinematographers to create beautiful and consistent flares but with one key ability – control. This is made possible by our newly developed lens coating T* blue. Under regular lighting, Supreme Prime Radiance render like modern and versatile cinematography lenses. With appropriate lighting however, the lenses start to flare. Cinematographers can decide and plan when they want to create flares rather than relying on unforeseen effects. Overall, Supreme Prime Radiance are a touch warmer than Supreme Primes but still retain all the other features that one might have experienced from using the regular Supreme Prime lenses.
We wanted to understand what is so appealing about lens flares and the look that comes with them. We talked to cinematographers and experts, we watched countless feature films and simulations, received feedback from around the world and asked ourselves: how do we define beautiful flares? It wasn’t about reproducing this beauty; we know what causes them and how. It was more a question of deconstructing a lens flare and creating it from scratch – the ZEISS way. Once we had defined what we wanted to achieve, instead of just uncoating lens elements, we revisited our T* coating formulae and reworked them: the birth of T* blue. By that we not only made sure that the resulting flares can be planned and reproduced but were also able to maintain contrast and avoid transmission loss that one normally experiences with uncoated lens elements.
ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses come as a seven-lens set: 21 mm, 25 mm, 29 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, 85 mm and 100 mm – all T1.5. Although being slightly warmer than regular Supreme Primes, they pair very well with them. That’s why we chose to go without the more extreme focal lengths on both ends of the range that the regular Supremes offer. Just mix and match as you see fit. In addition to their controllable flare behavior and warmer touch, they retain all the wellknown Supreme Prime features: an image circle of 46.3 mm to cover full frame sensors and beyond and a small front diameter of 95 mm with standardized positioning of the focus and iris rings on all lenses. Despite this, they are compact and lightweight and focus smoothly making it easy for you.

Taking consistency to the next level
ZEISS Supreme Prime lenses Consistency is one of the key elements offered by the ZEISS Supreme Prime lenses: that means consistent coverage, color rendering, aperture, size, weight and ergonomics. All the lenses across the family cover full frame and even bigger sensors with an image circle of 46.2 mm. The Supreme Prime lenses are color matched across the full range and most feature a fast T-stop of T1.5. The small front diameter of 95 mm on almost all lenses and standardized positioning of the focus and iris rings across the whole family facilitate fast and easy equipment changeout. The compact and lightweight design means you enjoy easy and comfortable handling. The ultra-smooth focus rotation of the Supreme Prime lenses even in extreme temperatures allows for small motors to make sure you have an easy setup that’s enjoyable to work with.
