Manufactured in Germany by Schneider-Kreuznach, this 95mm T2.0 PL-mount lens was designed with Digital Cinema in mind. Its 31.5mm image circle provides ample coverage for APS-C / Super35 sensors and support for resolutions beyond 5K Cinema. The telecentric optical design provides even illumination of the sensor, and the Special Schneider-Kreuznach high performance coating allows improved image performance and flare suppression. Its 18 blade Iris provides extremely smooth and round bokeh for exceptional backgrounds.
Across the board, the Cine-Xenar II lineup has an outside diameter of 104mm with a 100mm x 0.75 filter thread, and they are all color-matched to allow simple changing of lenses. There’s virtually no breathing/change in image size when focusing and and all focus and iris gears are in the same position.
The Cine-Xenar II lenses are designed for Super35mm sensors, they will not work with full-frame cameras.
