The Zeiss Contax line was a legendary set of optics from the seventies. Featuring the classic punchy Zeiss look, without the clinical cleanliness of its modern contemporaries, this glass will make your images pop - and with wonderful organic character. Built at the same time and sharing the same coatings, these are essentially full frame counterparts to the famous Zeiss 'Super Speeds'.

Originally designed for stills photography use, these lenses have undergone meticulous cine-modding for use as cinema lenses. They have been converted to Canon EF mount, the aperture de-clicked for smooth iris pulls and all are fitted with geared aluminium focus rings. The front diameters have been stepped up to all share an 82mm thread for use with common screw in filters. An 85-114mm clamp on ring or 114mm Black Hole Mini rubber donut can be supplied upon request (at no charge) for use with matte boxes.

These are among the most exciting sets of lenses available in Canon EF mount, and we are the only place in the UK with them available to rent!
