The Ultra Prime Lenses have the widest focal range of any 35mm prime lens set available to cover every cinematic need: from the unique Ultra Prime 8R extreme wide angle lens to the best telephoto lens designed specifically for motion pictures, the Ultra Prime 180 mm, giving you the flexibility to get the coverage you want.
Ultra Prime Lenses retain their excellent image quality even at close focus across the whole Super 35 frame. They are lightweight standard speed lenses that are a perfect optical match to the high speed Master Prime Lenses.

The Ultra Prime Lenses have been co-developed by ARRI and ZEISS, are manufactured by ZEISS, and are sold exclusively by ARRI.
This unique perspective opens new creative opportunities. The Ultra Prime 8R can be used for exhilarating high-speed point-of-view shots, amplifying the apparent speed of movement and putting the viewer right in the middle of the action. Since wide angle lenses exaggerate depth perception, this lens can make any space seem larger than it really is, without showing the telltale distortion of conventional wide angle lenses. For grand establishing shots, walls will look straight even when they are at the edge of the frame. Because of its enormous depth of field and straight image geometry, it is also very useful for shooting miniatures. The Ultra Prime 8R is the ideal lens for sweeping vistas, the interiors of cars, small rooms, unusual angles, wild music videos, underwater filming and many other applications where a fresh new look is required.
