This year at IBC, Zeiss is previewing the newest member of the Compact Zoom family. Joining the award-winning CZ.2 70-200 T2.9 and the CZ.2 28-80 T2.9, the new CZ.2 15-30 T2.9 features a compact and lightweight design at just under 10″ long and weighing in at 5.7lbs. Like the existing Compact Zooms, the new 15-30mm will cover full-frame (24 x 36mm) sensors. Additional features include interchangeable PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, and MFT mounts, and a close focus of 1’10”.
All three of the Compact Zooms are color-matched and 4K capable, with great flare suppression and low distortion. Their robust, cine-style housing is geared for follow-focus and remote FIZ systems.
The CZ.2 15-30 T2.9 is expected to be available around NAB 2014. For more details, read the full press release on Zeiss’s website.
