  1. 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.

  2. Olympus 45mm f/1.8 MFT Lens


    45mm-mft-lens

    The Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 lens for Olympus and Panasonic Micro 4/3 cameras is a great choice for portraits and low light.  Field of view on MFT is equivalent to 90mm on a full-frame camera. Bokeh at f/1.8 is impressive, especially for  a lens so small.

    The 45mm lens is an ideal companion to cameras like the Panasonic GH4. It’s also compatible with  the Zenmuse X5 camera and other micro four-thirds mounts. Autofocus is nearly silent. The lens is sharp throughout. Aperture and focus are controlled electronically by the camera. The lens has 37mm front threads.
