Carl Zeiss lenses have since time immemorial been synonymous with quality build and wonderful sharpness and fidelity, and they don’t show any signs of letting up.
We met with Richard Schleuning of Zeiss at NAB to discuss the latest range of prime and zoom lenses for photo and filmmaking coming from the company.
The ZE and ZF mount 25mm f/2 and ultrawide 15mm f/2.8 for DSLRs come in Nikon and Canon mounts. The five new CP.2 cinema lenses, with interchangeable mounts, including the 15mm full frame, fill out the range of cinema-optimized lenses. The “Superspeed” 35mm f/1.5, 50mm f/1.5 and 85mm f/1.5, allow for new creative possibilities. And the first CP.2 zoom lens, a small and light 70-200mm which covers the full frame sensor, makes its debut.
