The ARRI / ZEISS 8mm Rectilinear (8R) Ultra Prime Distagon T2.8 - PL Mount, Metric offers crystal clear color and contrast with excellent matching across all focal lengths. For technical clarity and sharpness, nothing compares to Ultra Primes.

The Ultra Prime 8R/T2.8 is an extreme wide angle lens with a unique look. Thanks to its rectilinear design, it provides an extremely wide angle of view without any of the commonly associated fisheye distortions. This unique perspective opens new creative opportunities.

The Ultra Prime 8R can be used for exhilarating high-speed point-of-view shots, amplifying the apparent speed of movement and putting the viewer right in the middle of the action. Since wide angle lenses exaggerate depth perception, this lens can make any space seem larger than it really is, without showing the telltale distortion of conventional wide angle lenses.

For grand establishing shots, walls will look straight even when they are at the edge of the frame. Because of its enormous depth of field and straight image geometry, it is also very useful for shooting miniatures. The Ultra Prime 8R is the ideal lens for sweeping vistas, car interiors, small rooms, unusual angles, wild music videos, underwater filming, and many other applications where a fresh, new look is desired.
