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

  • 1Description

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.

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

    70-200mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens (PL Mount) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Glass, great form factor Extremely lightweight and completely another type of beast if comparing with either Nikon or Canon plastic lenses. Interchangeable mount makes it a really cool lens for many situations. In PL version, you can also add a 2x Extender and get a 140-400mm with still a extremely good quality and very useful for wildlife as well as other appplications. Mount is very solid and weight helps to move quickly as well. Wether you want to shoot a film, a comercial, a concert or music video, having this lens will open you to a whole new world of possibilities due to its characteristics. The quality of this lens surpassed my expectations honestly but since it is not a rehoused still lens, but a whole new cinema lens design it makes sense. Many grumpy cinematographers would still say this is neither a DSLR lens nor a High End cinema lens, but I can tell you this lens is up to compete with bigger and more expensive lenses anytime for a much lower price, which still is not low but worth each penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zeiss Quality at a competive price Perfect zoom range starting at 70mm. Will be perfect for 4k applications as well. Excellent image quality and color balance. But you expect that from a Zeiss lens

    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>
