The ZEISS 85mm T1.5 CP.2 T* Super Speed Compact Prime - Imperial, PL Mount features full-frame coverage, high-quality image, excellent flare suppression, and precise focusing thanks to a large rotation angle.

All Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are coated with ZEISS T* coating. The T* coating name (shown with a red T* branded on ZEISS lenses) is derived from anti-reflective (AR) coatings developed 80 years ago at the ZEISS plant in Jena. The T-optics or T-coating name comes from Transparency Optics. These single-layer coating T-optics developed over the years into multilayer coatings. These coatings enable the existence of multiple lens elements and complex optic zoom lenses. 


  • The CP.2 family accommodates the flexibility of user demands with 5 interchangeable mount types available: PL, EF, F, E, and MFT mount
  • Use the same set of lenses when you switch cameras by exchanging the mount type instead of utilizing adaptors
  • With the exception of the Macro lens, all ZEISS CP.2 lenses feature the same front diameter of 114mm
  • 14 blade aperture construction for a near-circular iris shape
  • Fast T1.5 max. aperture
  • These lenses feature a longer focus rotation and a manual focus and iris with standard focus and iris gear positions
  • Full Frame coverage (for focal lengths 21mm to 100mm)
  • Compatible with most follow focus devices
  • Consistent look across all lenses in the ZEISS Compact Prime family, across the whole T-stop range
  • These lenses produce little to no color casting when capturing images with flare
  • Reliable, smooth bokeh
  • Robust, cine-style housing for durability in the field and long life 

IMPORTANT NOTE: While it is possible for end users to change mounts, ZEISS strongly recommends that this work be completed at a lens service center. Contact your local AbelCine Service Department for details.
