The Standards are 35mm format f2.0 lenses developed by Carl Zeiss for ARRI (then Arriflex), and predate the original Zeiss f1.2 High Speed series (Super Speed in the U.S.) Information on when the original set was introduced is hard to come by. A safe estimate is after 1964 and before 1975. It is likely that this set was called “Zeiss Primes for Arriflex”, and once the High Speed lenses were introduced in 1975, they became the “Standard Primes”.
When introduced, the Standards had the original Zeiss single layer anti reflective coating and were marked as T2.2 except for the 16mm, which was a T2.4.
