Zeiss_CP3_lineup_062817ZEISS has rolled out a new line of high quality lenses: the Compact Prime CP.3 and CP.3 XD. With a compact new design, these lightweight lenses are perfect for any type of shooting, from handheld to drone. They also boast full frame coverage across the entire range, and the esteemed ZEISS look that matches with every other ZEISS cinema lens. The biggest change is the new option for ZEISS eXtended Data (XD) technology, a unique technology that allows for real time information about your lens, speeding up your on-set and post-production workflow. Check out our CP.3 Lens Line Up chart, above, to see an overview of the key technical specs for each individual model.

I had ZEISS’ Snehal Patel over for a lively discussion about the new Compact Prime 3 and Compact Prime 3 XD lenses from ZEISS. This exciting new series of professional cinema lenses feature smaller and lighter housings than their CP.2 predecessors, consistent 95mm front outer diameters, and an updated focusing mechanism for a consistently smooth feel, even in cold weather.
