ZEISS CZ.2 70-200mm T2.9 (ft) Overview

The ZEISS 70-200mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens with PL Mount is a telephoto zoom lens that is optimized for motion picture production. The lens offers full-frame (36 x 24 mm) coverage and exhibits no focus shift over the zoom range. The cine-style housing features calibrated focus scales and industry standard gearing for focus, iris and zoom. At 9.84" long and with a weight of 6.2 lb, the 70-200mm is relatively compact and lightweight, which makes it ideal for handheld and Steadicam applications.

ZEISS Compact Zooms utilize T* anti-reflex coating and internal light traps to suppress flare, and a circular iris renders attractive bokeh. Interchangeable lens mounts are available in PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Micro 4/3, and Sony E, which means that users are not locked into a single camera system. A range of mounting options and 4K-ready optics make the 70-200mm Compact Zoom a virtually "future proof" lens.

question

Why is this lens 19000.00 in comparison to Sonys native lens of the same mm?
Asked by: Jennifer D.
Performance. That is what you are paying for. This is a Zeiss zoom, the finest in the world. With it you get unbelievable sharpness, flatness, lack of distortion, no vignetting, no breathing during focus, all in a rugged body that will work all day forever in the most demanding conditions for James Cameron. You do not want less than the absolute best in the world in such a camera situation. Think of your Ford Focus then think of a Formula 1 race car and you will start to see the difference in purpose and why the cost differential.

Can I use Canon TC TELECONVERTER iii (1.4 or 2x )or Sigma 1401 TC for EF lenses with the Zeiss 70-200 EF mount ?
Asked by: Joel
The Canon Extender EF 1.4X III and Canon Extender EF 2X III have only been tested and confirmed to work with Canon EF L-series lenses, we can not say if those adapters would work with the ZEISS 70-200mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens (EF Mount). The Sigma TC-1401 1.4x Teleconverter for Canon EF, like the Canon adapters, has only been tested and confirmed to work with with select Sigma lenses.

Asked by: Anonymous
The ZEISS Compact Zoom lenses are high-end cine zooms which are designed as companions for the UltraPrime and MasterPrime lenses. They offer similar color rendition and contrast, with the added benefit of having full-frame coverage. This means on super 35 sensors, you are imaging within the 'sweet spot' of the lens. Regarding the angle of view on different sensor sizes, please review the technical specs at: <a href= http://www.zeiss.com/cine. target= _blank >www.zeiss.com/cine.</a>
