The rarest, most desired and hard to find extreme wide angle lens ever made! The Ultra Prime 8R is an 8mm rectilinear lens and it is now available from Panny Hire L.A. If this lens was a watch, it would be a Paul Newman Rolex Daytona, that’s how special this lens is. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR ULTRA PRIME 8R TEST SHOTS: The Ultra Prime 8R creates a totally never seen before look based on the ‘rectilinear’ optical design. Usually an extreme wide angle lens suffers from the typical fisheye distortions, especially on the edges of the frame whereas this unique rectilinear lens design keeps the straight lines totally straight, rock solid straight with zero noticeable image distortion. The 8R is a very unique and special lens, and very rare and hard to find too. The Ultra Prime 8R lens design embraces the pinnacle of optical design technology and techniques, using special optical glass with anomalous partial dispersion with luxury glass materials, floating lens elements and a radical aspherical lens surface. The Ultra Prime 8mm delivers maximum contrast and maximised resolution, entirely consistent over the entire focus range, it also includes a macro quality close focus performance threshold. There is also no noticeable chromatic aberration or geometric distortions either. The highest quality extreme wide angle lens ever built, nothing anywhere near this level has been attempted before or since, the 8R is a one of kind. The 8mm Ultra Prime provides an extreme wide angle perspective, the straight lines stay straight – no barrel, no curving, no pincushion = no distortion. The 8R is perfect for music videos, epic extreme-wide establishing shots and sweeping vistas, perfect for action and chase sequences as the 8R perspective exaggerates speed and spaciousness. The 8R makes a small room seem huge. It is also great for shooting miniatures and underwater. The 8R is ideal for interior car shots, small rooms, unusual angles and perspectives – anything where a different and exciting look is required. The Ultra Prime 8R is also very small, nimble and lightweight – much smaller than a 10mm Ultra Prime (the 8R weighs 2/3rds of the weight of the 10mm UP). The rectilinear design says goodbye to the traditionally huge wide angle lens size. The Ultra Prime 8mm has a radical aspherical front element, with a unique rectilinear internal lens design. Because of the small size and weight of the 8R it can be used in small, tight and enclosed spaces. The Ultra Prime 8R rectilinear wide angle lens renders all straight lines in the scene as straight lines on the captured camera image.
