The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 100mm/T2.1 CF Cine Lens (PL Mount) is part of the second generation of CP cinema lenses that were the first to offer full-frame 35mm coverage of large sensor DSLRs (such as the Canon 5D Mark II). What distinguishes the CP.2 from its PL-mount-only predecessor is its interchangeable lens mount, which allows the included cinema-standard PL mount to be easily swapped out for an optional Canon EF or Nikon F mount. For the first time, a single, affordable, professional quality lens can be used on both cinema and still cameras, opening up creative possibilities that keep your rig lightweight, versatile, and on budget. Based on the Planar design, this fast telephoto extends the reach of your camera while also allowing for close focus up to 2.5 ft (0.7m).

Interchangeable Mount
The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the world's first cine lenses designed for use with DSLR cameras. The interchangeable mount guarantees high flexibility for present and future use in any situation and for a wide range of camera platforms.

  • Allows a mix of DSLR systems with traditional cine cameras, for maximum flexibility on set
  • No need for adapter solutions anymore
  • Three different mounts available (PL, EF and F mount)
Close Focusing Capability
With the CP.2 100mm you can go closer to the object you want to capture while still having a sharp image. The closest distance to the object with a CP.2 100mm CF is 2.5 ft (0.7m).
Ready for the Future
The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses cover a full-frame image format without vignetting. Combined with the interchangeable mount, the Compact Prime CP.2 offers the possibility to upgrade to any number of existing or future cine and still cameras while still utilizing the same set of lenses.

  • Full-frame coverage (24 x 36 mm) for focal lengths 21 to 100 mm
  • Common aperture of T2.1 for the standard lens set
  • Sweet spot effect with APS-C sensors
Unique 14-Blade Iris
The iris opening of the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses is created by 14 high precision blades. It stays consistently round and symmetrical over the entire T-stop range. This translates into natural and pleasing out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh. Together they help create and capture special moments on film.
High Optical Performance
The modern lens design as well as the cine manufacturing process and tight tolerances ensure low distortion, high resolution and excellent color rendition for sharp, punchy images.

    Comments about Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 100mm/T2.1 CF Cine Lens (PL Mount):

    Bought wrong adapting rings from other supplier to adapt the lens to Canon 5D and 7D Cameras. Couldn´t get proper focusing at different ranges. Need now proper adapting rings. Any help from your side?
