The Zeiss DigiZoom 6-24mm T1.9 continues the long, productive relationship between Carl Zeiss Optics and professional filmmakers. Built to the company's most exacting standards, this zoom lens is designed specifically for 3-chip 2/3" digital cinema cameras to provide the sharpest low-light imagery possible. Super fast at T1.9, this compact, rugged lens has the advantage of maintaining sharpness when wide open--which means no compromises, even in low light.
Equally important to a professional production are precision and control, and the DigiZoom provides both, with its highly accurate and easy-to-read focus scales, precise back focus, and internal focus design. Able to hold the most critical focus, the lens exhibits virtually zero shifting and breathing, so image size remains the same throughout the focus range. And because the 6-24mm is super color matched to every other Zeiss DigiPrime and DigiZoom, your production can maintain uniform color characteristics from lens to lens.
Small Wonder At just 9.8" (249mm), the Carl Zeiss DigiZoom is surprisingly compact and lightweight. So it's sure to fit the bill for handheld, remote and Steadicam work. Featuring all the standard cine-style accouterments--and then some--this zoom lens is equally advantageous in a studio situation, fully outfitted with cine mattebox, bridgeplate, as well as focus, zoom, and iris motors. Common Advantages For easy use and optimal compatibility with cine lens accessories, the 4x optic offers industry-standard pitch integral zoom, focus and iris gears, and brightly marked oversized windowed cine scales that are readable from either side of the lens. Focus scales are individually calibrated to each lens for pinpoint accuracy; and, like the rest of the family, the Carl Zeiss DigiZoom features a 95mm front diameter. Precision Back Focus It was DigiPrime lenses that set a new standard for precision back-focus alignment. So it is no surprise that the 4x zoom employs the ZEISS proprietary
