Fix This is a fixed focal length lens. Unlike vario lenses (zooms), image scaling is performed by the photographer's feet.

Among cinematographers, this type of cine lens is called a discrete lens, while photographers often use the term fixed-lens or simply “fixed”. Discrete lenses have historically appeared much earlier than zooms and form the basis of the optics park for cameras and cinemas, including digital ones. In video cameras, varifocal lenses are often used. Permanent focal length greatly simplifies the design lens, including the number of lenses and air / glass boundaries.

Therefore, discrete optics provide much higher image quality than zooms. However, one of the most important advantages of discrete optics is considered to be significantly higher aperture ratio, which is most pronounced with increasing frame size. So, if the aperture of a zoom lens designed for a small frame does not exceed f / 2,8 in most cases, prime lenses allow you to get f / 1,4 and even f / 0,95. The main disadvantage of discrete optics is the invariability of the angular field and perspective display. In professional photography and cinematography, this necessitates a set of several interchangeable lenses with different focal lengths.
