IBC '13: Zeiss Announces Their New CZ.2 15-30 T2.9 Compact Zoom

This year at IBC, Zeiss is previewing the newest member of the Compact Zoom family. Joining the award-winning CZ.2 70-200 T2.9 and the CZ.2 28-80 T2.9, the new CZ.2 15-30 T2.9 features a compact and lightweight design at just under 10" long and weighing in at 5.7lbs.

Like the existing Compact Zooms, the new 15-30mm will cover full-frame (24 x 36mm) sensors. Additional features include interchangeable PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, and MFT mounts, and a close focus of 1'10".

All three of the Compact Zooms are color-matched and 4K capable, with great flare suppression and low distortion. Their robust, cine-style housing is geared for follow-focus and remote FIZ systems.

The CZ.2 15-30 T2.9 is expected to be available around NAB 2014. For more details, read the full press release on Zeiss's website.

Zeiss has just starting shipping their new CZ.2 28-80 Compact Zoom lens. This lens joins their family of Compact Zooms, which also contains the 70-200 CZ.2 and their newly announced 15-30 CZ.2. The Compact Zoom lens family is similar to the Compact Primes in that these zooms cover the large full frame sensors that are found on cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III, 1D C, and also the large sensor area of the Red Epic Dragon at 6K. They also have interchangeable lens mount systems (PL, EF, F, MFT, E). These features make the lenses unique in the zoom world, as well as future-proof.
