The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the latest members of the ZEISS family of lenses for digital and film cameras. This second generation of the Compact Prime lenses now delivers even greater flexibility by introducing interchangeable mounts that allow the lenses to be used with a wide range of cameras from traditional cine to HDSLR systems. This new generation also offers a wide choice of lenses from wide-angle to tele lenses (18 to 100 mm, including a 50 mm macro lens). Affordable, flexible, yet of the highest quality, the new Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are a valuable edition to any film set and any level of cinematographic equipment.
The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the world's first cine lenses designed for use with HDSLR cameras. The interchangeable mount guarantees high flexibility for present and future use in any situation and for a wide range of camera platforms.
• Allows a mix of HDSLR systems with traditional cine cameras, for maximum flexibility on set
• No need for adapter solutions anymore
• Five different mounts available (PL, EF, F, Micro 4/3 and E mount)
Ready for the Future
The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses cover a full-frame image format without vignetting. Combined with the interchangeable mount, the Compact Prime CP.2 offers the possibility to upgrade to any number of existing or future cine and still cameras while still utilizing the same set of lenses.
• Full-frame coverage (24 x 36 mm) for focal lengths 21 to 100 mm
• Common aperture of T2.1 for the standard lens set
• Sweet spot effect with APS-C sensors
Unique 14-Blade Iris
The iris opening of the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses is created by 14 high precision blades. It stays consistently round and symmetrical over the entire T-stop range. This translates into natural and pleasing out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh. Together they help create and capture special moments on film.
