Schneider Xenon FF 18mm T2.4 Lens - Canon EF

Canon EF Mount Lens with choice of Metric or Imperial Measurements

The Schneider Xenon FF-Prime lens family are German-made lenses that offer outstanding image quality yet are ruggedly built to withstand the daily rigors of a working set.

Purpose Built for Today’s Full Frame Sensor Cameras
Designed for digital cinematography with today’s HDSLR and other cameras, the new Xenon full-frame lenses are the first fully professional, affordable primes that are optimized for 4K sensors and greater and deliver outstanding results under 4K as well. They elegantly cover the full 43.3mm image circle that’s usable on Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 cameras. With an all-new optical and mechanical design FF-Primes facilitate outstanding images tailored to top digital cinematography cameras today and beyond.

Uniform Size, Weight and Balance
Except for their bold focal length markings, each FF-Prime in the set looks the same. They share the same external dimensions, gear location, and similar weights. The only exception is the new 135mm T2.1 that is 10mm longer but is identical in all other respects. The uniform size and gear positions assure easy compatibility with existing cameras and accessories.

Quick Change Artist
Focus and iris gearing is uniformly positioned from lens to lens so that follow focus mechanisms, motors, and other accessories needn’t be painstakingly repositioned each time a lens is changed – a real time-saver. And to accommodate standard filters and other accessories, each FF-Prime has a 100mm front diameter with standard 95mm thread.

Cam Driven Constant Volume Focus
FF-Primes utilize a cam driven focus that permits more evenly spaced focus marks so focus is easier and more intuitive. The relatively uniform weight of the lenses greatly simplifies setting counterbalance on both tripod heads and support equipment like Steadicam and MōVI stabilisers.

Accurate and Visible Markings
FF-Primes feature oversized, bright and clean, easy-to-read focus and iris marks on both sides of the lens so they can be easily read regardless of where the Assistant is positioned. The distinctive focal length numerals are bold and san serif – for quick viewing in any light. With a 300° barrel rotation, the manual focus markings support precise accuracy and dead-on repeatability.

Colour Matching Throughout the Line
Costly colour correction is minimized when the image is acquired through a Schneider-Kreuznach prime. Each Xenon is colour matched to the others in the set.

Proprietary 14-Blade Iris on Every Lens
Fourteen identical precision honed blades form the meticulously precise circular aperture that lets the light into each FF-Prime. Every T stop on every lens in the family provides a pleasing and consistent bokeh that rivals the finest film lenses.

Flare Optimization and Film Look
Schneider-Kreuznach’s outstanding engineers have specified and selected the finest glass and applied propriety anti-reflection coatings to suppress unwanted flare. Cinematographers agree that FF-Primes have a pleasing film look and the near telecentric design mini-mizes breathing while pulling focus.
