At the Bench: Zeiss LWZ.3 21-100 Lightweight Zoom

The LWZ.3 21-100mm Lightweight Zoom from ZEISS is an extremely versatile lens that's designed for Super 35mm and APS-C sensor based camera systems. It is well suited for corporate, documentary and narrative work – especially projects where both budget and high image quality are considerations.

In this video I break down the lens, its features and where I see it being used in production. I also include some sample footage throughout. Please also check out Matt Porwoll’s Behind the Lens episode where he talks about his experience with the LWZ.3 21-100mm from a documentary cinematographer’s perspective.

Zeiss has had a line of reasonably priced cinema zooms for a few years now, but the introduction of the Zeiss LWZ.3 21-100mm takes things up a notch. The 21-100 covers a much longer focal length range than any of their other lenses, and is more than a pound lighter than its predecessors.
