ZEISS SUPER SPEED MKIII RENTAL
The Zeiss Super Speed MKIII T1.3 lenses are the result of a decade of experience the German brands Zeiss and Arri have had. The MKIII lenses are very similar to the previous series, but with important improvements.
The MKIII have high-speed, great sharpness and contrast. These lenses set a standard in the industry for following lens versions, like the "Ultra Prime" or the "Master Prime"; these last two and the MKIII have the same 7-blade iris and focus ring system as the MKII.
Way before the MKIII, in the mid 70's, the same manufacturers had a first lens set version (the MKI). At first, these lenses had a bayonet-type mount, which was changed for a PL mount a bit later. The main and most characteristic feature of these lenses is the triangle-shaped iris, and its effects become visible at T2.8 or above. The main flaw of this lens set's first version was the lack of rotation in the focus ring, which was around 180º. This was improved in the next versions, the MKII & MKIII, that have a 270º focus ring rotation.
The MKII and the MKIII lenses also have improved focus ring mechanics and focus marks on both sides of the lens.
The MKIII version added an extra lens to the set: the 65mm, that shares the same features and maximum aperture the rest of the set has.
As the MKI and MKII, the MKIII lenses suffer image sharpness and contrast loss when the iris is more open than T2.8. They also become less resistant to flashes and veils, despite their anti-flare covered optics.
