Band Pro Film & Digital announces the addition of the upcoming Carl Zeiss Telephoto DigiZoom? 17-112mm T1.9.

The second zoom in the company?s renowned line of precision optics for electronic cinematography, it joins the popular ZEISS DigiPrime® series of prime lenses from 3.9mm (T1.9) to 70mm (T1.6) CF, the DigiZoom 6-24mm T1.9, and the Sharp Max? back-focus alignment device. Carl Zeiss lenses are acclaimed for their unsurpassed optical performance and unequalled image clarity.
The Carl Zeiss Telephoto DigiZoom focuses to just 22? from the image plane -- 11? from the front of the lens. Plus, it has the ability to focus tightly on objects as small as 66mm x 117mm, bringing them fully into frame in precise focus.

The new optic shares many of the same design innovations employed in the popular ZEISS DigiPrime series. Industry standard-pitch zoom, focus and iris gears, and brightly marked, oversized windowed cine scales are employed for ease of use and optimal compatibility with cine lens accessories. Individually calibrated focus scales provide pinpoint accuracy. It also features a 95mm front diameter.
Carl Zeiss? back-focus mechanism provides highly accurate calibration across the focusing range. The company?s proprietary Internal Focus Design ensures top performance, center to corner throughout the entire focus and zoom range. Plus, it facilitates a consistent center of gravity, minimum balance shift, and no breathing.

Like the other lenses in the family, the ZEISS 17-112mm has been engineered for optimum performance in low light situations with the aperture fully open. The design produces unsurpassed contrast control by minimizing flare, veiling glare, and internal reflections -- well below other zoom lenses. It offers superior relative illumination and high resolution over the entire screen edge-to-edge, throughout the focal range.

For exceptional color characteristics, the manufacturer carefully selects superior quality optical glass, and then applies proprietary coatings. The new zoom accurately color matches and seamlessly intercuts with images made with the ZEISS DigiZoom 6-24mm T1.9 and the DigiPrime lenses.

The new Telephoto will be manufactured at the Carl Zeiss Optics factory in Oberkochen, Germany and marketed worldwide exclusively by Band Pro Film & Digital. First deliveries are scheduled for late 2006.
