The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 50mm/T2.1 Macro Cine Lens (PL Mount) is part of the second generation of CP cinema lenses that were the first to offer full-frame 35mm coverage of large sensor DSLRs (such as the Canon 5D Mark II). What distinguishes the CP.2 from its PL-mount-only predecessor is its 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. For the first time, a single, affordable, professional quality lens can be used on both cinema and still cameras, opening up creative possibilities that keep your rig lightweight, versatile, and on budget. Based on the Makro-Planar design, this fast "normal" lens allows for extremely close focusing up to 10" (24cm).

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.
