For the first time, a perfect combination of compact size, minimal weight,
very high speed and exceptional optical design with minimal distortion
has been achieved in a set of anamorphics. With beautiful out-of-focus
backgrounds and a smooth, cinematic look, the Master Anamorphic
lenses are as fast and easy to use on set as other modern cine lenses.


  • Low distortion for uncompromised Cinemascope
    - straight lines stay straight
    - no distortion compensation in post necessary
    - low distortion even at close focus
  • Cinematic bokeh with high contrast and nice focus fall-off
    - very smooth out-of-focus image
    - immersive look
  • Beautiful skin tones and precise color rendition
    - smooth and pleasant skin tones
    - crisp, natural color rendition
  • Characteristic out-of-focus highlights
    - oval and uniformly illuminated out-of-focus highlights
    - smooth iris shape because of 15 aperture blades
  • Large image field for full freedom in composition
    - full 2.39:1 format is useable for image composition
    - no visible perfomance drop at the corners
  • Large aperture of T2.8 for shallow depth of focus
    - T2.8 useable with any focal length at any distance
    - overcomes the old rule: “anamorphics need to be stopped down to T4.5”
  • Virtually no image breathing
  • No anamorphic mumps (fat face effect)
  • Super color matched to other ARRI/ZEISS primes and ARRI/FUJINON zooms
  • ARRI Lens Data System (LDS) for lens metadata
  • Optimized to be used together with the ARRI LDS Extender 1.4x or 2.0x
    to extend the focal length to 250 mm or 360 mm
