ZEISS Compact Prime CP.3 and CP.3 XD Lens Lineup Chart


ZEISS has rolled out a new line of high quality lenses: the Compact Prime CP.3 and CP.3 XD. With a compact new design, these lightweight lenses are perfect for any type of shooting, from handheld to drone. They also boast full frame coverage across the entire range, and the esteemed ZEISS look that matches with every other ZEISS cinema lens.

The biggest change is the new option for ZEISS eXtended Data (XD) technology, a unique technology that allows for real time information about your lens, speeding up your on-set and post-production workflow. Check out our CP.3 Lens Line Up chart, above, to see an overview of the key technical specs for each individual model.
