Please read VMI’s article, "E-Mount Lenses - perfect for the Sony FS7"

Lenses

Carl Zeiss DSLR Prime Lens set (ZF Distagon/ZF Planar Nikon Mount). Includes 5 x Zeiss 35mm ZF Distagon/Planar Stills Prime lenses -21/T2.9, 28/T2.0, 35/T2.0, 50/T1.4 and 85/T1.4 focal lengths.

Compatible with all DSLR and large sensor cameras using suitable adapters/lens mounts.

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.

We can provide lens adapters to allow these lenses to work with Canon EOS cameras such as the Sony A7S Mk II, EOS 1D Mk IV and 5D Mk III at no additional charge - please request this when ordering.

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!

These lenses are also available in uncoated form.

Zeiss ZF Distagon/ZF Planar DSLR Prime Set

  • 21mm/T2.9 Zeiss ZF Distagon Prime lens
  • 28mm/T2.0 Zeiss ZF Distagon Prime lens
  • 35mm/T2.0 Zeiss ZF Distagon Prime lens
  • 50mm/T1.4 Zeiss ZF Planar Prime lens
  • 85mm/T1.4 Zeiss ZF Planar Prime lens

Front Element screw-in adapters

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.
