Manufactured in Germany by Schneider-Kreuznach, this 50mm T2.0 EF-mount lens was designed with Digital Cinema in mind. Its 31.5mm image circle provides ample coverage for APS-C / Super35 sensors and support up to 2K/4K/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 III 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.
Please Note: The Cine-Xenar III lenses are designed for APS-C sensors. They will not work with full-frame Canon DSLRs.
