ZS lenses provide M42-mount cameras with the creative potential and phototechnical performance available so far only in the Contax system. In addition, ZS lenses incorporate new technical advances from the ZEISS Ultra Prime®, Master Prime® and DigiPrime® lenses for motion picture cameras. Results have been seen in feature films like "Lord of the Rings", "Alexander", "King Arthur", "Air Force One", "Collateral", "King Kong" and many commercials and music clips.
Like the ZEISS lenses for motion picture, ZS lenses feature unusually high mechanical quality, fixed focal length, very precise manual focussing, reliability, and exceptional durability. Special attention is paid to guarantee absolute color matching throughout the whole range of lenses resulting in state-of-the-art image quality.
The first ZS lens will be the Planar T* 1,4/50 ZS, which, in its Contax RTS version, was rated the world\'s best fast standard lens by "Popular Photography" in 1999.
