Zeiss Introduces Two New Compact Cine Lenses

Today, Carl Zeiss announced a new Compact Zoom and Compact Prime. The Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80 T2.9 is less than eight inches long and weighs just 5.5lbs.

Along with the previously announced companion lenses, the Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200 T2.9 and the Lightweight Zoom LWZ.2 15.5-45, Zeiss will offer handholdable zooms ranging from 15.5mm-200mm. The Compact Prime CP.2 25mm T2.1 replaces the CP.2 25mm T2.9, and with the introduction of this lens, all Compact Primes in the 25mm-135mm range will have an aperture of T2.1.

In addition, the Compact Primes and Compact Zooms offer two unique elements. They have an image circle of 43mm, which translates to Full Frame 35 stills format (36mm x 24mm, aka VistaVision) sensor coverage. They also feature the Zeiss interchangeable mount system for attaching to PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, MFT and Sony E mount cameras. No other lenses support this versatility.

The CZ.2 28-80 T2.9 is listed at $19,900 and will be available in the first half of 2013. The CP.2 25mm T2.1 will be available in October at a list price of $4500.
