Manufactured in Germany by Schneider-Kreuznach, this 50mm T2.0
EF-mount lens was designed with Digital Cinema in mind. Its 31.5mm
image circle provides ample coverage for APS-C
/ Super35 sensors and support up to 2K/4K/5K Cinema. The telecentric
optical design provides even illumination of the sensor, and the Special
Schneider-Kreuznach high performance coating allows improved image
performance and flare suppression. Its 18 blade Iris provides extremely
smooth and round bokeh for exceptional backgrounds.
Across the board, the Cine-Xenar III lineup
has an outside diameter of 104mm with a 100mm x 0.75 filter thread,
and they are all color-matched to allow simple changing of lenses.
There’s virtually no breathing/change in image size when focusing and
and all focus and iris gears are in the same position.
