Arri/Zeiss MK2 Standard Speed lenses have been used on many feature films, TVCs and other productions for four decades. Feature films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Holy Motors, Fargo and A Beautiful Mind were all shot with these lenses.
Zeiss Standard and Super Speed lenses are often chosen these days to 'soften' what many consider to be a harsher digital look. If you're trying to achieve a look that more modern lenses can't give you, come and shoot some tests on the Zeiss Standards.
