Overview

ZEISS CZ.2 28-80mm Compact Zoom Lens

  • F Mount (Meter)

Absolute flexibility and truly stellar performance.

The Compact Zoom CZ.2 lenses are as versatile as they are powerful and incorporate features never seen before on lenses of this kind. They are handy, compact, ready for 4k and even offer full-frame coverage. With their zoom lengths of 28-80 and 70-200 mm, they give you a wide range of creative options.

Their compact size and light weight make them the ideal companions for even the most ambitious applications, including handheld, Steadicam and projects in confined spaces. And thanks to their robust, cine-style housing (which also allows for the use of a follow-focus system), their full-frame coverage and interchangeable mounts, they will be reliable partners for years to come.

Key Features:

  • Interchangeable mount
  • Full-frame coverage (36 x 24 mm)
  • No focus shift over the zoom range
  • Robust cine-style housing
  • Circular shape of iris
  • Great flare suppression
  • Calibrated focus scale
  • 4K capability
  • Colourmatched with all ZEISS Prime lenses.

Application

The size and weight of the Compact Zoom CZ.2 make the lens perfect. Both Zoom Lenses are colormatched not just to eachother, they fit perfectly to all ZEISS prime lenses.

The Zoom lenses are ideal for top-quality movies, feature films productions and documentaries. With their outstanding color matching, typical for ZEISS, they make an optimal addition to the Master Prime, Ultra Prime and Compact Prime.
 
A highly precise mechanical adjusting concept is used to compensate this negative effect with the Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200mm T/2.9. The goal is to stabilize the image position while zooming. Three independent lens movements are necessary to achieve this. You have a sharp crisp image without refocusing.

Why should I go for the Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200mm T/2.9 or the CZ.2 28-80mm instead of a photo zoom lens?

The Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200mm T/2.9 comprises all the features of a cine-style lens. Extra-long focus throw, constant T-stop of 2.9 across the entire zoom range and easy-to-read markings. But the main difference to a regular photo zoom lens is a phenomenon called “focus shift”. When zooming in on an object with a photo zoom lens you always have to adjust focus. As soon as you change the image frame the position of the sharp plane of focus changes as well. In still photography this is not a problem. But in motion picture it is a big issue because your details might be out of focus. Your scene is ruined.
