The ZEISS 15-30mm CZ.2 Compact Zoom Lens in PL or EF mount is a short wide-angle zoom lens optimized for digital cinematography, suitable for formats from Super35 to Full-Frame and Large-Format sensors. Supporting beyond 8K resolution, this lens is color matched to ZEISS primes, allowing seamless intercutting between zoom and prime lenses.

The CZ.2 15-30 zoom lens features internal mechanical adjustments built into a rugged cine-style housing that minimizes focus shift across the zoom range. Built-in lens gears on the zoom, focus, and iris rings enable compatibility with available follow focus and zoom motors, such as the ARRI Hi-5. The lens has a circular iris for natural-looking out-of-focus highlights and easy-to-read focus scales calibrated in feet.

Absolute Flexibility

The ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses are versatile and powerful, incorporating features never seen before on lenses of this kind. They are compact, ready for 8K and beyond, and offer full-frame coverage. The zoom lengths of 15–30mm, 28–80mm, and 70–200mm provide a wide range of creative options. Full frame coverage allows usage on various formats from Four Thirds to Full Frame and Large Format.

Precision & Versatility

ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses feature exquisite optics in a robust package. They offer interchangeable mounts, providing the possibility to upgrade to existing or future cine cameras while using the same set of lenses. Additionally, they cover a full-frame image format without vignetting. The nearly 300° focus rotation provides extremely accurate focus pulls.

Lens Coatings

The T* anti-reflex coating and internal light traps suppress flare, providing a sharp image with good contrast. The size and weight of the ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses make them perfect for high-end music videos, feature film productions, and documentaries. All three zoom lenses are color-matched to each other and fit perfectly with all ZEISS cinema prime lenses such as the ZEISS/ARRI Master Prime lenses and ZEISS/ARRI Ultra Prime lenses.
