Distinguished by its low distortion and smooth, natural color rendering, the ARRI Master Anamorphic 180mm T2.8 is the longest lens in the series, featuring a narrow field of view, relatively compact size, and very high speed. The lens is super color-matched to other ARRI/ZEISS primes and ARRI/FUJINON zooms and its 15-blade iris produces cinematic-looking, oval bokeh with distinct focus fall-off. The exceptional optics ensure minimal breathing when focusing and no "fat face/anamorphic mumps" effect on your subjects.

Optical Performance
Utilizing signature ZEISS color precision and color matching to other ARRI/ZEISS prime lenses and ARRI/FUJINON zooms, the Master Anamorphic prime lenses produce top-notch images with a highly cinematic, immersive look. The 15-blade aperture helps to produce smooth, oval-shaped bokeh with characteristic out-of-focus highlights.

  • Cinematic bokeh with high contrast and smooth focus fall-off
  • Low-distortion optics, no distortion compensation in post necessary
  • Smooth and pleasant skin tones
  • Precise, natural color rendition 
  • Uniformally illuminated out-of-focus highlights 
  • Straight lines stay straight
  • No visible performance drop at corners, full 23.9:1 image format remains usable 
  • Large aperture of T2.8 for shallow depth-of-field, usable at any distance
  • No image breathing and no anamorphic distortions (anamorphic mumps/fat face effect)
Physical Design
  • Super 35 Cinemascope format 
  • ARRI PL mount with feet markings
  • Relatively compact size, minimal weight, very high speed
  • LDS electronic contacts for metadata transmission
  • Compatible with ARRI LDS Extender 1.4x and 2.0x for extending to 250mm and 360mm respectively 
  • 180mm focal length for capturing distant subjects 
  • Close focus distance of 4.9'
  • Smooth, manual focus and aperture rings 
Master Anamorphic Series
The Master Anamorphic series comprises nine high-performance prime lenses ranging from 28mm to 180mm, accompanied by 1.4x and 2.0x ARRI ALURA LDS Extenders that lengthen the telephoto reach to 360mm. Complementing the primes at the other end of the focal length scale is ARRI’s unique Anamorphic Ultra Wide Zoom AUWZ 19-36/T4.2, which allows extraordinary wide-angle shots with minimal distortion and uniform field illumination.

Perfectly combining compact size, minimal weight, very high speed, and exceptional optical design, the Master Anamorphics deliver beautiful out-of-focus backgrounds and a smooth, cinematic look, while being as fast and easy to use on set as other modern cine lenses.

ARRI Master Anamorphic Flare Sets
The ARRI Master Anamorphic Flare Sets are highly versatile and economical accessories for the ARRI Master Anamorphic lens series. Each of the nine Master Anamorphic focal lengths has its own specific flare set, comprising easily replaceable front and rear glass elements with a special lens coating that encourages flaring, ghosting, and veiling glare. The flare elements can be used individually or in combination to provide the lens with three additional looks for enriched on-set creativity.

By using the ARRI Master Anamorphic Toolkit, the front and rear glass elements can be exchanged with the regular Master Anamorphic elements in a matter of minutes, since each flare element is pre-aligned in a metal frame. A set of Master Anamorphics effectively becomes four different anamorphic lens sets, each suitable for different flaring requirements while maintaining the famously distortion-free optical performance.
