Last Updated: Mar 19th 2020


18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm T1.4 - PL Mount - 80mm Front Diameter Recently serviced at Duclos Lenses Beautiful set of legendary vintage Zeiss Super Speed "B-Speed" lenses. These are the original run of Super Speeds, developed by Zeiss in the mid-70s and used on such classic films as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and The Terminator, as well as newer productions like The Walking Dead and American Hustle. These low contrast Super 35mm lenses are perfectly paired with the Alexa/Amira cameras as well as RED cameras up to 6K FF. They're even small / lightweight enough for most gimbals. Their look is a fantastic compromise between a more idiosyncratic vintage feel and ultra-sharp modern optics. At 2.8-4 they're crisp and clean. But wide open at 1.4-2, things become gorgeously stylized with a subtle almost diffused quality. And the unique 9-blade iris gives the out-of-focus highlights an unmistakable triangular bokeh that sets the "B-Speeds" apart from the rest of the Zeiss Super Speed line. Check out the Gold Room bar scene in The Shining or many of the nighttime driving sequences in Taxi Driver to see what I mean. These are the only lenses I know that can operate equally well on heavily stylized music videos and documentary interview shoots, on impressionistic narrative projects and formal corporate gigs. Easy to see why they've stuck around for over 40 years! ARRI Amira Package also available for rent. See listing:
