Rate & Review

One of the most important aspects of a successful production is the competence and diversity of your team. Whether you’re shooting a commercial where exquisite color rendition and high contrast is important, or a tense, dramatic sequence in low light situations for a feature film, Compact Prime lenses offer you the performance you need to get the scene right. With a wide range of focal lengths, full-frame coverage, fantastic image quality, great flare suppression and precise focusing through the large rotation angle, Compact Prime lenses give you a flexible set of tools to make your film shine. With its long history in both photo and cine lenses, Carl Zeiss is dedicated to supporting filmmakers and allowing you to benefit from the highest possible image quality in any situation.

The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 50mm/T2.1 Makro Cine Lens (EF Mount) is a second generation CP cinema lens that gives full-frame 35mm coverage of large sensor DSLRs. It features interchangeable lens mount, which allows the included Canon EF mount to be easily swapped out for an optional cinema-standard PL or Nikon F mount which makes it a single, affordable, professional quality lens suitable for both cinema and still cameras, opening up creative possibilities that keep your rig lightweight, versatile, and on budget. Based on the Makro-Planar design.

Switching between traditional film and digital PL cine cameras and HDSLR cameras is no longer an issue. The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses’ improved functionality means improved ergonomics compared to standard SLR lenses, standard housing dimensions, standard focus and iris gear positions, a consistent front diameter, a robust construction, longer focus rotation and a manual focus, thereby providing the flexibility users demand. With precision and speed - Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the perfect tool for Independent filmmakers, professional still photographers expanding their services or large studios using HDSLR’s as a second camera for TV and feature film productions.

  • Interchangeable Mount: The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the world's first cine lenses designed for use with DSLR cameras. The interchangeable mount guarantees high flexibility for present and future use in any situation and for a wide range of camera platforms. Allows a mix of DSLR systems with traditional cine cameras, for maximum flexibility on set, no need for adapter solutions anymore. Three different mounts available (PL, EF and F mount)
  • Close Focusing Capability: With the CP.2 50mm Makro you can go closer to the object you want to capture while still having a sharp image. The closest distance to the object with a CP.2 50mm Makro is 10" (24cm).
  • Ready for the Future: The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses cover a full-frame image format without vignetting. Combined with the interchangeable mount, the Compact Prime CP.2 offers the possibility to upgrade to any number of existing or future cine and still cameras while still utilizing the same set of lenses. Full-frame coverage (24 x 36 mm) for focal lengths 21 to 100 mm. Common aperture of T2.1 for the standard lens set. Sweet spot effect with APS-C sensors
  • Unique 14-Blade Iris: The iris opening of the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses is created by 14 high precision blades. It stays consistently round and symmetrical over the entire T-stop range. This translates into natural and pleasing out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh. Together they help create and capture special moments on film.
  • High Optical Performance: The modern lens design as well as the cine manufacturing process and tight tolerances ensure low distortion, high resolution and excellent color rendition for sharp, punchy images. High resolution and contrast, low distortion, color matched, great flare suppression through T* anti-reflex coating and internal light traps. Calibrated lens scales.
