At the Bench: Zeiss CP.2 Super Speed Lenses

Zeiss has carried on the tradition of the Super Speed family with its latest additions to the CP.2 line. These new T1.5 lenses come in 35mm, 50mm and 85mm focal lengths and share many of the same features as the other CP.2s, including a 114mm front diameter and interchangeable mounts.

Additionally, the focus barrel has an angled finish, so focus marks can be easily read by the operator. These lenses also cover full sensor, meaning that one set of lenses works for everything from an HDSLR to a high-end digital cinema camera.

For more details on the new Zeiss CP.2 Super Speeds, watch my video above. If you're interested in learning even more about the ins-and-outs of Zeiss lenses (and others), Mitch will be traveling to the LA area to present a special Secrets of Optics class on March 25th.
