New Zeiss lenses announced at IBC 2012

Carl Zeiss has announced the latest additions to it's cine lens lineup at IBC 2012; the Compact Zoom CZ.2 and Compact Prime CP.2 25/T2.1

Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80/T2.9

The new Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80/T2.9 by Carl Zeiss is a cine zoom lens ideally suited to a wide variety of shooting situations. It is easy to handle, compact and versatile. It takes pictures in 4K resolution — in full format. This is the second Compact Zoom CZ.2 lens from Carl Zeiss, complementing the Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200/T2.9 presented in April at the NAB Show 2012 in Las Vegas for the longer focal length range. For color rendition, contrast and other parameters such as great flare suppression, calibrated focus scales, consistent aperture over the zoom range, round iris the new CZ.2 family is closely aligned to one another, making these lenses ideal for attaining a consistent optical performance when changing lenses.

With a length of 196 millimeters and weighing in at 2.5 kg (5.5lbs), the Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80/T2.9 is sleek and lean. Thanks to the five different mounts (PL, EF, F, MFT and E), this new zoom lens from Carl Zeiss can be easily adapted to numerous camera systems both now and in the future, as well as on HDSLR cameras, HD video cameras and professional cine cameras.

The Compact Zoom CZ.2 28-80/T2.9 will be delivered in the second quarter of 2013.

Compact Prime CP.2 25/T2.1

The introduction of the new Compact Prime CP.2 25/T2.1 lens means all eight lenses in focal length range 25-135mm now have aperture T2.

By using the interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E, these lenses can be easily adapt to numerous camera systems, ensuring compatibility with future cameras as technology changes. Thanks to the interchangeable mounts and the 36 x 24mm image-circle illumination the Compact Prime CP.2 lens family is versatile to use — on HDSLR and HD video cameras as well as on professional cine cameras. The lenses are characterized by their robustness, a standard focus rotation angle of 300 degrees and uniform measurements. This combination makes the lenses ideally suited for every demand on the film set. All Compact Prime CP.2 lenses have a standard cine-style housing with gearing that allows the attachment of any standard follow-focus system.

Carl Zeiss will start shipping the new Compact Prime CP.2 25/T2.1 on October 1st, 2012.
