Today Zeiss announced pricing for their new Compact Prime Series 2 lenses. With mount interchangeability between PL, EF and F, these lenses are not only more versatile, but also the price has been significantly reduced, making them even more affordable. See the new pricing information for the CP.2 lenses here. You can also place a deposit on two of the lens sets on our CineStore. Of course, to truly appreciate the lenses, you have to see them in action…
A few months ago, Zeiss approached us to do some testing of the Compact Prime lenses, and we jumped at the chance to put them through their paces. After considering all the scenarios to test them under, we decided the best way to evaluate them was in the hands of a real cinematographer. So we approached DP John Inwood and asked him if he would shoot a short film with the Compact Primes. John and I worked together and created the following short, The Bicycle. Watch and enjoy the film, and then check out the two-part Behind the Scenes interview with John.
