Building on the well-regarded CP.2 lenses are Zeiss’s CP.3 Compact Prime Lenses. These lenses offer full-frame coverage with the classic Zeiss look. Finally, they utilise an updated form factor with new mechanics and lens coatings.

These lenses build on the same classic optical formula as the CP.2. This includes focus and iris gear positioning. Also physical length is consistent throughout the entire CP.3 focal range. Finally, all lenses share the same 95mm front diameter. This makes fitting accessories such as matte boxes, follow focuses and lens support easier.

Signature Zeiss Look

The CP.3 features the classic Zeiss clean and crisp image rendering. For example, they will accurately colour-match other Zeiss cinema lenses. Additional features include an improved lens coating and anti-reflection masking for increased contrast and reduced flare.

New Ergonomic Design

The CP.3 lens barrel has been redesigned to be similar to the Zeiss Ultra Prime lenses. Consequently they are easier to handle and take up less physical space than the original Compact Prime lenses. Finally, the CP.3’s feature even weight distribution. Therefore are much easer to use handheld, with tripods or flown on a Steadicam or gimbal.
