Schneider Kreuznach Xenon Full-Frame Primes

Schneider Kreuznach has launched a completely new series of full-frame lenses, the “Xenon full-frame primes.” Developed specifically for video enabled DSLRs (but also usable on professional cine cameras), the series initially comprises three fixed focal lengths: T2.1/35mm, T2.1/50mm and T2.1/75mm. The lenses support 4K Ultra HD video resolution and can also be used for stills photography. Cinematographers will be pleased to learn that they are all compatible with standard professional cine accessories like rigs, follow focus or matte boxes. Each Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon full-frame prime lens features a maximum aperture of T2.1, an iris diaphragm with 14 rounded blades, an M95 filter thread, robust cine-style lens mechanics and a focus ring with a 300° angle of rotation.

Press Release

New SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH DSLR Full-frame Lenses for Film-makers and cinematoghraphers

BAD KREUZNACH, 02 April 2013
Schneider-Kreuznach has launched a completely new series of full-frame lenses, the “Xenon full-frame primes” . They have been especially developed for DSLR cameras with full-frame sensors for video shooting and can also be used with professional cine cameras. The new lenses will be available from the second half of 2013.

The series initially comprises three fixed focal lengths: T2.1/35mm, T2.1/50mm and T2.1/75mm. All lenses are suitable not only for Nikon and Canon DSLR full-format cameras with corresponding F or EOS bayonet mounts, but also professional film cameras with a PL mount. The product series will soon be expanded with wide angle and telephoto focal lengths.

“This series of prime lenses has been especially designed for full-frame sensors and meets users’ exceptionally high demands in terms of optical performance and ease of use,” says Daniela Kesselem, product manager at Schneider-Kreuznach. The lenses are color matched. Whether for commercials feature films, Xenon full-frame prime lenses provide film makers with optimum performance and reliability in all situations.

The full-frame lenses are designed for 4K resolution (4096 × 2304 pixels). They can be used with standard professional cine accessories like rigs, follow focus or matte boxes. Special features required for filming such as minimized breathing, a harmonious bokeh or reduced stray light have been optimized in the Xenon full-frame prime lenses.

Further product features of all Xenon full-frame prime lenses include:

A maximum aperture of T2.1 as well as identical external dimensions and positioning of the controls in all models
A circular aperture with 14 blades to ensure a harmonious bokeh
Robust cine-style lens mechanics
Manual, precise and reproducible focus settings with a 300° angle of rotation
Larger focus and distance scales for easier focusing even with greater distances, readable on both sides
M95 filter thread
Exchangeable bayonet interface
