Cine Gear 2016: Zeiss Lenses & The Importance Of Full Frame Coverage

With ever climbing camera resolutions comes the need for full frame lenses that actually cover their sensors. We spoke with Snehal Patel of Carl Zeiss about their Compact Prime and Compact Zoom full frame lens families, the real benefit of large sensors and the importance of full frame coverage.

One of the most important aspects of a successful production is the competence and diversity of your team. Whether you’re shooting a commercial where exquisite color rendition and high contrast is important, or a tense, dramatic sequence in low light situations for a feature film, Compact Prime lenses offer you the performance you need to get the scene right. With a wide range of focal lengths, full-frame coverage, fantastic image quality, great flare suppression and precise focusing through the large rotation angle, Compact Prime lenses give you a flexible set of tools to make your film shine. With its long history in both photo and cine lenses, ZEISS is dedicated to supporting filmmakers and allowing you to benefit from the highest possible image quality in any situation.

  • Interchangeable Mount
  • Full frame coverage (CP.2 18mm only APS-H)
  • Robust cine style housing with the ability to utilize follow-focus
  • Standard focus and iris gear positions
  • Five different mounts available (PL, EF, F, E and MFT mount)
  • Consistent front diameter (except of 50 Macro)

ZoomsMerged1200px

Lightweight and compact zoom lenses featuring the Interchangeable Mount System (PL, EF, F, MFT, E).

The new Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses are as versatile as they are powerful and incorporate features never seen before on lenses of this kind. They are handy, compact, ready for 4k and even offer full-frame coverage. With their zoom lengths of 28-80 and 70-200 mm, they give you a wide range of creative options.

Their compact size and light weight make them the ideal companions for even the most ambitious applications, including handheld, Steadicam and projects in confined spaces. And thanks to their robust, cine-style housing (which also allows for the use of a follow-focus system), their full-frame coverage and interchangeable mounts, they will be reliable partners for years to come.

  • Interchangeable mount
  • Full-frame coverage (36 x 24 mm)
  • No focus shift over the zoom range
  • Robust cine-style housing
  • Circular shape of iris
  • Great flare suppression
  • Calibrated focus scale
