This year Zeiss showcases its power in full-frame cine lenses : The latest full-frame prime lens family Compact Prime CP.3 and CP.3 XD, as well as the Cinema Zoom CZ.2 lenses, which are full frame zoom lenses.
There are a total of ten CP.3 lenses available with fixed focal lengths from 15mm to 135mm. The three Cinema Zoom CZ.2 lenses offer zoom ranges of 15-30mm, 28-80mm, and 70-200mm. All of the lenses are available with the five most common mounts for motion picture cameras (PL, EF, E, F & MFT).
Besides the full frame coverage, the CP.3 XD lenses provide Zeiss eXtended Data. It is a unique technology which is based on the /i * technology and provides information about the lens’ distortion and shading characteristics in real time. With the Zeiss CP.3 XD lenses, even small productions on a limited budget gain access to the advanced techniques common in state-of-the-art, big budget films, commercials and television shows.
