Zeiss’s eagerly anticipated CP.2 lenses, with interchangeable lens mounts, are here!
These revolutionary lenses offer Zeiss’s superior optical quality in an EF mount that makes them the ideal choice for HDSLR shooters, and the new lenses are more affordable than ever. For maximum versatility, the CP.2 lenses are switchable between EF and PL mount. To see the Compact Primes in action, watch the short film The Bicycle and then check out the two-part Behind the Scenes interview with the DP, John Inwood.
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 Director, Andy Shipsides, worked together and created the following short, The Bicycle.
