<p>The <strong>ZEISS Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 21-100mm T2.9-3.9 T* - PL Mount, Imperial</strong> offers superior performance in any imaginable production situation. Whether you are shooting a short film, TV movie, commercial, corporate video, TV drama, soap, or a documentary under the most difficult conditions, the Zeiss LWZ.3 is a powerful optical solution.<br><br>A sophisticated lens design results in a tremendously lightweight form factor that does not sacrifice outstanding Zeiss optical performance. Your shots will stand out with pin-sharp structures, vibrant colors and high contrast. Nicely shaped out-of-focus lights, a lovely bokeh and focus roll-off produce the desired cinematic look and feel of a scene. The focus is steady over the entire focal length. There is no shift of focus while zooming in and out, as is common with still photography lenses.<br><br>The focal length range between 21mm and 100mm offers a wide scope for choosing the perfect angle, and the ability to capture unexpected moments without having to spend time changing lenses. Even at 21mm the image has extremely low distortion, is free of vignetting, and the MTF curves confirm sharpness from edge to edge.<br><br>A rugged, splash-proof housing provides freedom even in ambitious shooting conditions, both indoors and outdoors. Each Zeiss LWZ.3 has individually calibrated, continuously precise scales. The robust gears and fixed gear positions enable the user to easily attach follow focus or wireless lens control systems. The completely lightweight and resilient design is ideal for drone, gimbal, and Steadicam applications.</p> <p><em>NOTE: </em>This lens features a PL Mount and imperial (feet) focus scale.
