NAB 2014: Zeiss Servo Controller for Compact Zoom Lenses

At their NAB booth this year, Zeiss showed off an interesting new option for their Compact Zoom line of lenses.

This new servo controller gives users the ability to control focus and iris, plus it is designed to work with all CZ.2 lenses via baseplates that are specific to each focal length. Watch my video above for more details and a closer look.

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.
