The new Schneider FF primes are a unique set of lenses. The 18mm FF Prime has a max aperture of T2.4, utilises a 35mm Full Frame image circle (24x36mm), and are offered in PL, Nikon F, and Canon EF mount. At approximately 3.5 lbs each, these primes are perfectly sized for handling and portability. The integrated focus, and iris gears are all arranged in the same position from the mount making lens swaps a breeze while shooting. Don't be held back by mount options and image circle requirements. The Schneider FF-Primes can handle almost any format on any camera.
In today’s fast moving world the last thing you want to slow you down is your optics package. That’s why Xenon FF-Primes were custom designed from the ground up to be versatile enough to work with an array of cameras and accessories you may need for various projects today and tomorrow. So whether it is RED Dragon, Canon C100/C300/C500, Arri Alexa, Black Magic, Sony F5/F55 and HDSLR cameras, these compact lenses provide 4K resolution and cover the full 43.3 mm image circle usable on Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 cameras.
Each compact lens offers all new optical and mechanical design for outstanding operation and performance as well as rugged reliability. The circular 14-blade aperture is specially engineered for a smooth and consistent bokeh. The precision constant volume focusing design ensures that breathing is minimised - and with a 300-degree barrel rotation , the manual focus markings offer accuracy and repeatability. Additionally all lenses are colour-matched for consistency.
Engineered for compatibility with industry-standard cine-style accessories like follow focus rings and matte boxes, the Xenon FF Primes feature identical external dimensions and positioning of focus and gear rings in each focal length. Operators will appreciate using the oversized focus and distance scales that are readable on both sides of the lens.

Purpose Built for Today’s Full Frame Sensor Cameras
Designed especially 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 optimised for 4K sensors and greater and deliver outstanding results under 4K as well. They elegantly cover the full 43.3 mm image circle that’s usable on Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 cameras. With an all-new optical and mechanical design that combines leading edge technology, combined with time-honoured expertise, 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 135 mm T2.1 that is 10 mm 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 lens has a 100 mm front diameter with standard 95 mm thread (only 18 mm has no thread)
Cam Driven Constant Volume Focus
Incorporating the most up-to-date optical and mechanical design features, the FF-Primes utilise a cam driven focus instead of the helical thread commonly found on photo-based lenses. The cam 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 specialty camera support equipment like Steadicam and MōVI stabilisers. Cam driven focus and precisely calibrated focus scales provide accuracy and repeatability you can rely on.
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 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 minimised when the image is acquired through a Schneider-Kreuznach prime. Each Xenon is colour matched to the others in the set thanks to Schneider-Kreuznach’s expert optical engineering and proprietary lens coatings.
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 Optimisation and “Film Look”
Engineering a lens from the ground up is a delicate balance of mechanics, glass and coatings. Schneider-Kreuznach’s outstanding engineers have specified and selected the finest glass and applied propriety anti-reflection coatings to suppress unwanted flare. Most cinematographers agree that FF-Primes have a pleasing “film look” and the near telecentric design minimises breathing while pulling focus.
Xenon FF-Prime Lenses are available in Canon EF-, Nikon F-, and PL-mounts. For those who work with different cameras, Schneider-Kreuznach offers interchangeable bayonet mount kits that may be readily installed by a competent lens technician.
Robust and Reliable, Guaranteed
Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon FF-Primes are built for action. With 100 years in the photography field Schneider-Kreuznach understands the rigors of life on the set. So FF-Primes are built to move with you through repeated focus and iris changes. The lens’ mechanics are built to stand up through the shoot and over the years.
