Now Shipping: Zeiss CZ.2 70-200 T2.9 Compact Zoom

Zeiss has begun deliveries of their first Compact Zoom, the CZ.2 70-200 T2.9. This lightweight lens is a sister to the Compact Prime lens family, which means that it shares versatile traits such as Full Frame 35mm coverage (it'll cover the Canon 5DM3 and 1D C) and professional cine style gearing and marking.

Additionally, it features interchangeable lens mounts (PL, Canon EF, Nikon, Sony E and Micro 4/3), and is quite affordable. It is also a Zeiss, which means that it is sharp with excellent contrast. Along with its soon-to-arrive mate, the Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80 T2.9, as well as the Zeiss lightweight zoom LWZ.2 15.5-45 T2.9, you could choose to forego primes entirely and instead use a small set of bantam-weight zooms for all common lensing needs. Watch my video to learn more about the new Zeiss 70-200 Compact Zoom.

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.
