The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 Seven-Lens Kit (PL Mount) from B&H offers the full range of Zeiss's professional PL-mount cinema lenses. The award-winning optics of the company's ZF DSLR lenses are present; for these lightweight primes, the functionality and handling are enhanced to satisfy the exacting demands of professional motion-picture production. The lenses' 14-blade irises ensure natural and pleasing out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh.

This kit, which includes Two hard Zeiss Transport Cases that features foam cutouts for six lenses, ranges from the wide-angle 18mm f/3.6 to the wide telephoto of the 85mm T/2.1. All of these lenses feature Zeiss's Interchangeable Mount System, which means that with optional kits the primes can be modified to fit DSLR and Micro Four Thirds cameras.

Note: All lenses offer coverage of full-frame 35mm sensors (such as the Canon 5D Mark II), with the exception of the 18mm f/3.1.

  • Zeiss 18mm/T3.6 CP.2 Compact Prime Cine Lens with PL Mount

    The Zeiss 18mm/T3.6 CP.2 Compact Prime Cine Lens with PL Mount is an 18mm fixed focal length lens with a flexible design compatible with separately available interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, E and MFT mounts, allowing you to use the cine lens with movie cameras and HDSLR cameras. The lens covers the ANSI Super 35 and Normal 35 image formats, and is suitable for HDSLRs with APS-C and APS-H format sensors.

    Featuring 14 high-precision blades, which create a consistently round and symmetrical iris opening over the entire T-stop range, the lens ensures uniform out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh. T* Anti-reflex coating and internal light traps help suppress disturbing flares. The Compact Prime Cine Lens features a unique lens design that helps provide enhanced contrast, resolution and color rendition, and reduces distortion. Markings for distance are given in feet.

  • Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 21mm/T2.9 Cine Lens (PL Mount)

    The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 21mm/T2.9 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 standard-cinema 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.

    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)
    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.

    • High resolution and contrast
    • Low distortion
    • Color matched
    Great flare suppression through T* anti-reflex coating and internal light traps
    Calibrated lens scales
    Standard focus and iris gear positions
    Stable exposure due to manual operated aperture
    Robust and reliable cine style housing
    Longer focus rotation and a manual focus
    Consistent front diameter from lens to lens
  • Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.1 Compact Prime Lens (PL Mount)

    The Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.1 Compact Prime Lens with PL Mount is a wide angle, prime lens that Zeiss has optimized for motion pictures. This wide angle lens supports full frame format cameras, with coverage for up to 36 x 24mm. The cine-style housing features industry standard gearing for the focus and iris barrels, and the longer, cine-style focus "throw" enables more precise adjustments.

    In order to facilitate easy lens changes, most Zeiss Compact Prime lenses share matching dimensions for front diameter and length. Interchangeable lens mounts are available in PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Micro 4/3, and Sony E. A range of mounting options and 4K ready optics make the 25mm T2.1 Compact Prime a virtually "future proof" lens.

    Full-Frame, 36 x 24mm coverage
    Cine housing with geared focus and iris barrels
    Longer, cine-style focus rotation
    Front diameter and length match most CP.2 lenses
