These lenses are very good choice for low-light settings, and they will give you a sharp image when shooting at low apertures.

 

This is the first and oldest generation of the now legendary Zeiss “Super Speed" lenses, commonly referred to as “B-Speeds.” Introduced in the 1970s the original housings had ARRI Bayonet Mounts. They share a lot of DNA with the later versions of Super Speeds. Their incredible optics are made of “rare earth element glass,” (which lens manufacturers are no longer allowed to use).

 

The thing that sets B-Speeds apart from nearly any other lens ever made is their unique 9-blade iris that results in an aperture that has the shape of a triangle with rounded sides. This iris design not only gives the lenses a gentler focus roll off, but it also produces one of the most striking bokeh effects of any other lens.

 

Breathing is minimal. Flares are very nice thanks to the vintage coatings. Shooting wide open results in a beautiful flattering look with a slight glow to highlights. Stop down and the look is sharper and has more contrast.
