ZEISS CZ.2 28-80mm T2.9 (ft) Overview

The ZEISS 28-80mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens with EF Mount is a standard 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 7.72" long and with a weight of 5.5 lb, the 28-80mm is relatively compact and lightweight, which makes it ideal for handheld and Steadicam applications. The lens features a built-in lens support post, with 3/8" threading for use with available lens supports.

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 28-80mm Compact Zoom a versatile and virtually "future proof" lens.

This zoom is excellent, sharp as a tack images..from what little i have used this product I plan to own all 3 cz2 zooms, if you can handle the weight of a zoom you cant beat having one at the ready..makes the shot so easy to get perfect...after owning a cp2 the cz2 makes life perfect! A perfect lens for the red epic, i love it!

Is there a Cooke/i or Zeiss XD port?
Asked by: Philipp
No this lens series does not have any data ports. They are not smart lenses and were introduced before XD technology was developed.

question

can i get a servo on this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The zoom is manual. You would need to use a 3rd party controller to add servo zoom.
