Can anyone name any movies that were filmed either totally or mostly using Zeiss Variable Prime lenses?
Thanks.

(Tsotsi is one of them.)

Pan's Labyrinth comes to mind.

from what I recall Michael Balhaus used them on Uptown Girls. I think he owned the set and probably used them on most films he did recently.

He used them on most of his projects starting with "Air Force One" - I think only "the Departed" was mostly shot with Master Primes.

Eyes Wide Shut used them.

I noticed there are 2 on ebay for sale. I sold them to the guy for $10,500 for both lenses a couple of years ago. He's now wanting over $14,000 for each one. I told him if he changes his mind I'd gladly buy them back for the $10,500 I sold them for.

Haven't heard back from him.

I don't know if these are as good as the ones you sold but here's 4 for 15K so far:

Might be worth taking a look just in case they are. :)

My set were in feet not meters. Still a very good price for 4 Variable Primes mind you. They also look a bit more beat up than the ones I had.
