Our Leaf Shutter lenses are designed together with world-renowned optics manufacturer, Schneider Kreuznach of Germany. Building on decades of experience in high-resolution optics and precision manufacturing, the Blue Ring lenses are some of the sharpest lenses in the world - built for today’s systems, as well as the future.
Medium Format Bokeh
The XF Camera System is made to use lenses offering breathtaking bokeh and dramatically shallow depth of field. Not only that, but the perspective retention and visual impression of a medium format capture is head and shoulders above alternative photography formats. When you see it, you know.
High Resolution Glass
Phase One lenses are designed to resolve well beyond the high-resolution medium format sensors available on the XF Camera System. Using large sensors, large pixels, and optics prepared to scale, the range of Phase One lenses is already capable of going beyond 100MP resolution.
Leaf Shutter Lenses
With an integrated Leaf Shutter, the Phase One Schneider Kreuznach lens range delivers flash synchronization speeds of up to 1/1600th of a second. Photographers can overpower the sun and gain complete control over ambient light using flash, in order to perfectly freeze motion or create beautiful lighting effects.
Focal Plane Lenses
The Phase One Focal Plane lens range is designed to deliver clean optical performance with fast apertures, at the lowest possible weight. For photographers needing outstanding image quality, easy portability, rugged design, and the fastest capture response of the available the lenses, the focal plane range is an ideal choice.
Zoom & Specialty Lenses
In addition to our range of fixed focal length prime lenses, the XF Camera System is compatible with both Focal Plane and Schneider Kreuznach Leaf Shutter zoom lenses, delivering optical performance that rivals equivalent focal length primes. For those photographers that require tilt or shift lens movement, the Schneider Kreuznach TS is a go-to choice.
Free Choice of Lens
Every professional application is unique, and the tools required are no exception. Phase One understands the individual demands of professional photographers, and because of that bundles each XF IQ3 Camera System with your choice of packaged lens. Our entire Blue Ring prime lens line is available for you to choose the focal length that best meets your needs when the XF Camera and IQ3 Digital Back are purchased together.
