Master Zoom

One of the sharpest zooms ever made for Super 35.

The Master Zoom 16.5 - 110 covers the whole Super 35 frame over the entire zoom range, while displaying very little breathing. Ensuring the highest optical performance due to a sophisticated design and manufacturing techniques. The Master Zoom is a joint development of ARRI and Carl Zeiss.

  • Focal range of 16.5 to 110mm with a max. aperture of T2.6
  • No ramping
  • Virtually no breathing
  • Provides superior damping of stray light and flare
  • Active temperature compensation
  • Almost no geometric distortion, even up close
  • Built-in Lens Data System (LDS)
  • Super Color Matched with all ZEISS cine lenses


Special light absorption techniques and the ZEISS T* XP multi-layer, anti-reflection coating keep veiling glare to a minimum, while the novel optical design reduces spherical aberration and keeps the image geometry free of distortions – so straight lines stay straight, from infinity to close focus.
