  1. Zeiss 50mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    Comments Off on Zeiss 50mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    The Zeiss CP.2 50mm T1.5 Super Speed lens with EF mount is an excellent all-purpose lens, and reads as a “normal” focal length on full frame or Vista Vision sensors like the Canon 5D mark III.  Zeiss CP.2s have become a standard for film and television productions.  The Compact Prime family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP.2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP2 lenses can be reserved and rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

    Looking for a more affordable Zeiss 50mm? Our Zeiss cine-modded 50mm Planar T* is a popular option.

    Insurance or a deposit is required for this rental.
