Compact Prime CP.2 Lenses

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.

In order to use the Compact Prime and Zoom lenses on various cine style cameras, we developed an interchangable mount set (PL, EF, F, Micro 4/3, or E mount) to offer you maximum flexibility on set – no need for adapter solutions anymore.

  • Interchangeable mount set consisting of: mount, shims, rear cap, support bracket (except for PL mount) and screws
  • Siemens star test chart
  • Pre-adjusted Torx torque wrench

To keep your Compact Prime and Zoom lenses safe and ensure uncomplicated transport, we developed a carrying case which is as flexible as the lenses themselves. It has been tested to guarantee maximum protection and can be used for all focal lengths and combinations. Also, the lenses are stored on their sides, making it easy to see their aperture rating, allowing for a quick change when necessary.

  • Three versions: 4 lens case, 6 lens case and one for a Zoom lens
  • Convenient hand recess for easy handling
  • Individual inlays to customize transport case
