High quality EF lens adapters can be supplied without additional charge to allow these lenses to work with cameras with EF mount at no additional charge – please request this when ordering.
VMI Zeiss sets have been modified to include a follow-focus ring which will allow an ARRI MFF1 follow focus to operate without attaching an external gear and the fronts have been modified to give a consistent 80mm donut size.
Some people want to know why we have broken with tradition and do not supply a conventional 18, 25, 35, 50, 85mm set. This is because these are not a speed-matched set with a common F stop, so this will become 18mm/F3.5 (slow), 25mm/T2.9, then 35mm/T2.0, & 50/85mm both T1.4 . Instead a 21mm has T2.9, 28, 35mm are matched T2.0 and 50 & 85 are matched T1.4 which we find a better combination. Also the jump between an 18mm and 25mm is quite large, besides which the 18mm vignettes with the 5D MkII/MkIII, so 21, 28, 35, 50, 85 is a happy compromise!
Zeiss Uncoated ZF Distagon/ZF Planar DSLR Prime Set
Note that VMI supplies all Zeiss ZF prime lenses with 80mm front element adapters, to allow them all to have a standard 80mm donut fitting for ease of using matte boxes.
However, these are removable to expose the original screw-in thread to fit screw-in adapters like the Genus variable ND screw-in filters.
However, the Zeiss ZF lenses are really inconsistent. 21mm (87mm); 28mm (64mm); 35mm (64mm); 50mm (66mm); 85mm (77mm). So if clients want to use screw-in adapters, then we would recommend that they use Canon L_USM Prime lenses instead.
Designed specifically for DSLR Cameras such as the Canon EOS 7D and 5D MkII and also compatible with AF-101 and PMW-F3 with suitable adapters available from VMI and also Letus Ultimate 35mm adapter for small cameras.
