Zeiss Super Speed MKII Lenses

Zeiss Super Speed MKII Lenses

These vintage Zeiss Super Speed Lenses offer a super fast T1.3 aperture and produce magenta and blue lens flares. They are small and lightweight, making them a  great choice for handheld and gimbal setups. We carry the Mark II, which are somewhat easier to use than the classic Zeiss Super Speeds..

The Super Speeds have vintage Zeiss coatings that add personality and mildly reduced contrast to an image, making modern sensors look more filmic and creating cinematic images. Zeiss Super Speed lenses have been used on hundreds of cinema classics, including The Shining, Terminator 2, Taxi Driver, and A Beautiful Mind.

Zeiss Super Speed lenses cover more than Super 35, giving complete open gate coverage on ALEV III sensor cameras like the Arri Alexa Mini. They will give mixed coverage on larger sensor cameras like the Alexa Mini LF. With many focal lengths covering UHD and 2.4:1 crop modes, a camera prep day will answer all your questions about the ideal resolution and sensor coverage for your particular production.

Our Zeiss Super Speeds range from 18mm to 85mm. If more expanded lengths are needed, the Zeiss Standard Speed lenses match the Super Speed look, and range from 10mm to 135mm.

Be advised: Zeiss also made Super 16mm Super Speed lenses, which are not for Super 35 sensors. Zeiss CP.2 lenses with T1.5 apertures are branded as “Super Speed,” but the “Zeiss Super Speed” name is an informal one, and typically refers to the T1.3-T1.4 lenses from the 1970s to 90s.  We also carry Zeiss Standard Speed lenses.
