Compact Primes
Welcome to the Family
Compact Primes
The Compact Primes are a new set of high quality PL mount lenses for digital and film
cameras. They are based on the award-winning optics of ZF still photography lenses,
which ARRI and ZEISS have further optimized and built into completely new
lens housings designed specifically for cinematography. Benefiting from the
uncompromising standards of motion picture equipment manufacturing,
the Compact Primes are an affordable set of primes that deliver high
image quality as well as the ergonomics and robust construction
demanded by the rigors of life on the set.

Welcome to the Family
The long and highly successful collaborative relationship between ARRI
and Zeiss has resulted in an expansive family of products including the
Master Primes, Ultra Primes, Ultra 16 lenses, Master Diopters and the
Lightweight Zoom LWZ-1 - lenses that have raised the bar of
cinematography optics to unprecedented heights.
The newest member of this family, the Compact Primes, are made
specifically for a growing niche in the market: they offer professional
quality on a budget and have been designed for both film cameras and
the emerging generation of digital motion picture cameras, covering
the Super 35 as well as the full frame stills format.
Improving on the ZF Design
The Zeiss ZF lenses are recognized
as being optically unsurpassed in
the world of stills photography;
they have superb stray light
suppression and a more
three dimensional look than
other professional stills
lenses.
The Compact Primes
take the very best elements of the ZF lenses
and improve upon them,
with tighter mechanical
and optical tolerances,
a more precise optical
adjustment during manufacturing and stricter quality
control. A unique 14-blade
iris, not present in the ZF design,
ensures precisely repeatable iris
settings, a pleasing bokeh and organic,
perfectly circular out-of-focus highlights.

Consistently Sharp, Punchy Images
In terms of their optical quality, the Compact Primes are equally at home on the
new crop of digital motion picture cameras as they are on film cameras.
The modern lens design and the cine manufacturing process produce high
resolution, high contrast and excellent color rendition for consistently sharp,
punchy images. New manufacturing techniques greatly reduce geometric
distortion, a feature especially important for special effects productions.
The T* lens coating, special internal light traps and proprietary matte
black paint on the lens housing interior result in excellent flare
suppression for images with high contrast, clearly defined
highlights and deep, rich blacks.
To speed up grading in post, all Compact Primes are
closely color matched, not only to each other but
also to the Master Primes, Ultra Primes, Ultra
16 lenses, Master Diopters and Lightweight
Zoom LWZ-1. This means the cinematographer is able to concentrate on creating a
look rather than matching lenses.

The positive locking (PL) lens mount, used on all ARRI cine lenses,
ensures a safe and solid connection between lens and camera.
Made for the Set
When you hold a Compact Prime in your hand, you can
immediately feel that it is a lens made for the rough world of
professional filmmaking. The housing is rugged and durable,
and its solid construction helps when using lens motors.
Compact Primes will remain rock-steady in the PL mount;
they will not wobble like many stills lenses do when used
for cine work.
The experience gained in designing professional cinematography lenses over the last 90 years has been applied to the
design of the Compact Primes. Their handling on the set
and in the rental house has been ergonomically optimized
for a fast and safe production workflow. The calibrated focus
ring turns in the direction all other cine lenses turn and the
purposefully chosen larger diameter provides a substantial
rotating circumference for more precise focusing and plenty
of room for clear lens markings.
Fast and easy lens changes are ensured since all Compact
Primes have the same dimensions and have the focus and
iris rings in the same position. When you take off one focal
length and put on another, you don’t have to waste any time
adjusting accessories before you carry on shooting.

The Compact Primes and Ultra Primes contain a number of flare suppressing measures, including the T* lens coating,
internal light traps and housing interiors painted with several types of proprietary black paints with different refractive
indices. These measures ensure a high contrast image with clearly defined highlights and deep, rich blacks. For the
absolute minimum in flares and internal reflections, the Master Primes are equipped with the T*XP lens coating and
additional, strategically placed light traps.
(2)
Master Primes contain special moving elements (Dual Floating Elements, patent pending) and aspherical lens surfaces
to eliminate geometric distortion. This is especially noticeable on wide angle lenses.
(3)
Master Primes contain special moving elements (Dual Floating Elements, patent pending) that virtually eliminate breathing
(an unwanted shift in image size when focus is changed).

The Ultra Primes are available both in a non-LDS and in an LDS version.

All Ultra Primes have a widest aperture of T1.9 except for the extreme wide angle lenses: UP8R (T2.8), UP10 (T2.1) and
UP12 (T2). All Master Primes have a widest aperture of T1.3 except the Master Macro 100 (T2.0).
