After almost a year of their first launch of cine lens line-ups, ZY Optics have started shipping their Speedmaster Cine 50mm T1 lens in a new housing design. The team has preserved the ideal optical quality yet modify the housing which will live up to the industries’ standards, also fitting all the PL cameras. It is the first-ever full-frame 50mm T1 lens in a native PL mount. EF mount is also available. A protective case will come along with the purchase.

It took almost a year for the team to optimise the design of the Speedmaster 50mm T1 Cine Lens. The lens is now equipped with the filmmaking industry’s standards: 0.8 Mod Gear which helps the precise working of follow focus gadgets; 105mm filter thread and 114mm outer diameter. They are the common specifications of cinema lenses in the market. Having the same specification with other lenses will help save the trouble when changing lenses in real production. Operators can be free from frequent re-adjustment of the settings. The seamless lens gear and long focus throw with precise scale dual markings (Imperial and Metrics) allow accurate control of focus point even with extremely shallow depth of field at T1.0.


Buttery Smooth & Refined Bokeh Rendering

The ultra-fast T1 aperture and close min. focusing distance enables the lens to produce buttery smooth and refined bokeh rendering. 9-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to a pleasing round bokeh when the lenses are used wide-open. Perfectly separating the subject from its background, the lenses enable a creation of a look unparalleled by conventional lenses.


Minimal Focus Breathing

The Zhongyi T/1.0 series lenses are designed to suppress the focus breathing to the minimal, allowing focus pull without compositions changed. The ultra-fast T1 aperture also facilitates shooting at low-light condition.


Extraordinary Mechanical Built

A unified front diameter and gear position of the 17 / 25 / 35mm lenses make the work with focus motor and matte box much easier. Operators are thereby free from frequent re-adjustment of the settings. The internal focus design means the physical
size of the lens stay unchanged throughout the entire focus throw. The seamless lens gear and long focus throw with precise scale markings allow accurate control of focus point even with extremely shallow depth of field at T1.0.

The 50mm has a relatively bigger form factor with its full frame coverage and longer flange design. It is specially designed to match with professional large format cinema cameras in PL / EF mount.


Premier Image Quality and Cinematic Look

The colour contrast and sharpness of the images are much more well-defined than other lenses with similar specification and price range. The T1.0 lenses offer pleasant rendering of cinematic look. This series strikes to give natural colours with a hint of vintage vibes. And the color is consistent for different focal lengths.


First Ever T1 Native Lens for Red Komodo & C70 Users

The 35mm T1.0 in canon RF mount is the world’s first ultra-fast cinema lens on the market, standing out especially in the limited amount of native RF cine lenses. The Zhong Yi 35mm T1.0 RF perfectly covers the entire sensor of Red Komodo and Canon C70 cinema cameras, making them a handy combo for run-and-gun shooting.
