Zeiss MK III T1.3 “Super Speeds”

Set Options

5 Lens Set 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm

The name “Super Speed” is one familiar to nearly all cinematographers, even though it was never officially associated with a lens until 2012. The Zeiss MK III T1.3 high speed lens series built on the popularity of the 1970’s Zeiss B-Speed series and their 1980’s follow up MKII series. Featuring the same optical and mechanical design as the MK II’s, the MK III’s featured only a different focus scale, with more detailed markings. All MK III “Super Speeds” feature uniform 80mm front diameter’s, a compact, lightweight design and a fast T1.3 aperture. The MK III’s feature characteristics akin to other Zeiss lenses such as good contrast, high resolution and neutral colour rendering. With a gentle fall off, and pleasing sharpness, the popularity of the “Super Speeds” has risen in recent times with the increase in high resolution digital capture. The “Super Speeds” are a vintage classic and an industry favourite.
