The Zeiss CZ.2 28-80mm T2.9 Compact Zoom Lens is now available for purchase through Camera Hire. The Zeiss 28-80 comes standard with PL Mount, but is able to be changed to Canon EF, Nikon, or Sony E-mount. This standard-range zoom lens is optimised for motion picture production. The lens offers full-frame (36 x 24 mm) coverage and exhibits no focus shift over the entire zoom range. The cine-style housing features calibrated focus scales and industry standard gearing for focus, iris and zoom. At 19.5cm long and with a weight of 2.5kg, the 28-80mm is relatively compact and lightweight (hence Company Zoom), which makes it ideal for handheld 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.
