ZEISS Dimension Lenses
High precision for greater efficiency.
ZEISS lenses need to operate perfectly in extreme conditions, withstanding everything from scorching heat and bitter cold to sandstorms and severe vibrations. The video shows how ZEISS researchers systematically submit lenses to extreme stresses in order to arrive at findings that can help in future lens design and development.

Exceptional image quality
ZEISS Dimension lenses’ outstanding image quality, even the smallest structures are clearly resolved. This reduces the demands placed on downstream image processing and makes shorter production times possible. In addition, the lenses’ extremely high image resolution is what makes certain measurements and the ability to collect some data possible at all.
Correct flange focal distance tolerances
Precision is crucial in industrial applications. For maximum image sharpness, the lens and camera must work perfectly together. The smallest deviations in the flange focal distance can have negative effects on imaging performance. This is why the ZEISS Dimension lens family is equipped with the innovative adjustment mechanism*. The benefit of this system is that it allows the back focus distance to be corrected by up to +/- 0.2 millimeters without having to disassemble parts of the lens.
ZEISS T* coating for high-contrast images without reflections
The ZEISS Dimension lenses feature all ZEISS T* coating. The careful selection of the layers deposited on the lenses ensures both the high and uniform transmission of light from the visible spectral range to the near-infrared wavelength range.
About this series
The new ZEISS Dimension® family meets the highest demands for industrial applications. The lenses developed for use with a C-mount are designed for image sensors up to a size of 4/3” and offer exceptional image quality in a compact, lightweight and rugged aluminum housing. The ZEISS Dimension® family consists of six focal lengths ranging from 8 to 50 millimeters. Almost all ZEISS Dimension lenses have the same outer diameter for reliable planning when mounting them in production facilities.
Precision and ease of operation are key factors that make the ZEISS Dimension family stand out. With the help of the innovative adjustment mechanism*, it is easy to compensate for tolerances at the camera mount. In addition to the C-mount’s stable screw connection, locking screws on the focus and aperture rings guarantee a high degree of stability and ensure that the settings remain in the correct position.
