The ARRI Master Anamorphic lenses are the result of a cooperation with ARRI’s long-term lens partner Carl Zeiss. The
new anamorphic lenses offer a unique optical performance, with optimized flare and bokeh as well as state-of -the art
lens barrels featuring improved dust and water protection. All nine Master Anamorphic lenses (28, 35, 40, 50, 60, 75, 100,
135 and 180mm) are super color matched to other ARRI/ZEISS primes and ARRI/FUJINON zooms as well. They provide
revolutionary new optical technology in anamorphic lenses for virtually no image breathing, no distortion and no
anamorphic mumps (fat face effect). Their near telecentric optical design reduces color fringing and shading at the image
corners. These are the first anamorphic lenses to be designed from the scratch for modern digital cameras, although they
will work with analog film cameras as well. However, they benefit from the combination with ARRI ALEXA 4.3 cameras for
outstanding overall image quality. ARRI Master Anamorphic lenses are optimized for aesthetic look and feature evenly
illuminated oval out-of-focus highlights without any sharp edges due to the newly developed iris with 15 aperture blades.
The lens barrel is based on the same reliable mechanics as the industry-renowned ARRI Master Prime lenses but with
even better sealing against dust and humidity, the completely new focusing mechanism overcomes time-consuming
mechanical readjustments on the set.
