Zeiss has revealed the next-generation of its popular CP.2 Compact Prime lenses – the Zeiss CP.3 and CP.3 XD range.
The lenses are smaller and more compact than the CP.2s and come in focal lengths from 15mm to 135mm. T-stops are T2.9 from 15 to 21mm and T2.1 from 25 to 135mm. All focal lengths now also cover full frame sensors where the 8mm CP.2 doesn’t.
The sizes of the new optics lenses are more consistent to make swapping between them on rigs easier.
All the CP.3s have a 95mm front diameter where the CP.2s were 114mm. There are 14-blade apertures for smooth out-of-focus areas and the focus rings all have 300° of focus rotation.
The XD line provides metadata to enable automatic correction of distortion and vignetting in post production, and are ideal for films using special effects. The full press release says:
