    Five Fundamental Facts about the NiSI F3 Range of Full-Frame Prime Cine Lenses

    Since the announcement of the NiSi F3 range of full-frame lenses, NiSi's headquarters have been inundated with questions and queries. In order to address some of these, we have compiled a list of answers around five key subjects. Read on for more, and to discover news in our announcement of the new NiSi Allure Mist Black/White Filters

    Where does the name F3 come from?

    The 'F' in F3 stands for 'Full-Frame'. The lenses are all designed for full frame cameras and are extremely versatile, coming complete with PL, Canon EF and Sony E-Mounts. Mounts for other systems will need to be purchased separately, although NiSi will provide shims to ensure consistent filmmaking.

    The number '3' simply means 'third generation' and also refers to the range's three key design characteristics, i.e. high resolution, low dispersion and retro flare.

    What exactly is the relationship between the NiSi F3 range and Bokkelux?

    Let's be clear; the F3 prime lenses belong solely to NiSi since the company took ownership from Bokkelux. Since this time, NiSi are pleased to report that numerous improvements have been made and, being based on the original Bokkelux design, NiSi's optical and mechanical design engineering experts have re-optimised some key elements to deliver the excellent new range.

    These include:

    • Improved accuracy with assembly and improved supply chain for the optical elements
    • Improved physical attributes, i.e. the weight and calibre of the lenses have been improved with reliability and user assurance being of primary importance
    • Along with these significant improvements, NiSi has developed a new and innovative design for an optical accessory for F3 range. Once this is completed, we will release information, but you can be assured that it will meet the unique needs for many filmmakers.

    OK, so what about the relationship between the NiSi F3, Kinefinity and Mavo Prime?

    That's simple, really. Kinefinity is partner of NiSi. Our specialist engineers have modified the industrial design for the Mavo Prime while retaining the same performance and quality. The new F3 range and Mavo Primes are manufactured exclusively by NiSi.

    Will the NiSi F3 Primes come with both imperial and metric markings?

    Absolutely. Markings will be in feet and metres.

    What are the details for the F3 sales warranty policy and can we expect additions to the focal lengths this year?

    NiSi is currently in the process of setting up special service centres, specifically for sales warranties. Bases will be in Europe, North America and in South Asia. We will make further announcements about the details of the certified sales warranty suppliers after the third quarter. You can expect to see 18mm and 135mm primes coming to light in the second half of this year.

    F3 Lens Range Highlights

    • Covers Full-Frame Format
    • PL Mount/Canon EF Mount/Sony E-Mount
    • T2.0-T22 Click-less Aperture Range
    • Ultra Low Dispersion
    • High Resolution
    • Retro Cinema Style Housing
    • 12-Blade Iris
    • Same physical attributes across the lens range
    • Geared Focus and Iris Control Rings
    • Pure Performance in Film

    Launching in 25mm T2.1, 35mm T2.0, 50mm T2.0, 75mm T2.0 and 100mm CF T2.0 formats, the new range of premium lenses from NiSi debuted during NAB 2018, which took place between the 7th -12th April in Las Vegas.

    Compatibility

    The new F3 prime lenses cover full-frame format which is compatible with ARRI Alexia LF, Red Monstro VV, Panavision DXL2, SONY Venice and Canon C700FF, along with 'future-proofing' for other cameras that we will see arriving in the future. They cover 46.5mm format sensors, allowing filmmakers full creative control, opening up a wide range of cinematic possibilities.

    Pure Performance in Film

    The new F3 lenses offer filmmakers advanced resolution and perfect dispersion control, image contrast and flare; all optimized by their stylish, retro housing.

    The entire F3 series of lenses share the same physical attributes, allowing for the simple and time-efficient fitting of lens accessories, along with the native 'Sensed presence' technology, which provides users with the ability to shoot with a beautiful bokeh. The native apochromatic optical design results in excellent ratio/axial dispersion performance, giving a pure and natural colour, with almost no purple/green fringing within focus and in bokeh.
