High Speed Lenses
Firstly, Zeiss introduced a high speed lens series where all focal lengths were specifically designed as cine lenses, and with the second generation, where all lenses were f1.2. The Carl Zeiss High Speed lenses were first featured in the Planar 0.7/50mm lens commissioned by NASA in 1966. This lens was not, furthermore used on the Apollo 8 mission. This lens is also known as the “Kubrick Lens” for its use shooting the candlelight scenes in ‘Barry Lyndon’.
The Zeiss High Speed lenses were series produced in various generations from 1975 to 2004. Consequently, they were replaced by the ARRI/Zeiss Master Prime series in 2005.
Original High Speed Lenses -1975

They were among the first Zeiss lenses (super Speeds T1.3) to have the Zeiss T* multicoating, which increases contrast and overall light transmission (T-stop) and reduces flare. Finally, they were only available with ARRI bayonet mounts.
