The Zeiss 28-80mm Compact Zoom CZ.2 T2.9 LF Zoom lens is a versatile and high-performance standard range zoom lens optimized for cinema and motion picture production. It offers full-frame LF/FF coverage, zero focus shift over the entire zoom range, and a robust cine-style housing. Available with PL or EF mounts.


The exciting new 28-80mm Compact Zoom CZ.2 T2.9 LF Zoom from Zeiss, Germany, is now available. The Zeiss CZ.2 28-80mm is a standard range zoom lens perfectly optimized for cinema and motion picture production, uniquely offering full-frame LF/FF coverage (36 x 24mm) to cover cameras like the Alexa Mini LF, Sony VENICE, and RED Monstro 8K Vista Vision sensors. This lens is future-proofed for any full-frame or Super35 sensor.

A special feature of this zoom lens is the ‘Zero Focus Shift’ over the entire zoom range, which is rare. The cine-style lens housing body includes calibrated focus scales and industry-standard gearing for the ‘pulling’ of focus, iris, and zoom. At 7.72″ (196mm) in length and weighing only 5.5lbs (2.5KG), this zoom lens is relatively compact and lightweight for its range and speed, making it ideal for handheld, Steadicam, and Ronin applications. The lens also features a built-in lens support post with a 3/8″ thread for use with lens supports.

Zeiss CZ.2 Compact Zoom lenses feature the T* lens coating, identical to Ultra Prime and Master Prime lens coatings, providing anti-reflex, anti-reflective benefits, and light traps to reduce flares. The 28-80mm Compact Zoom features an 18-blade aperture design, rendering a perfectly circular and beautifully attractive out-of-focus bokeh.

The lens is available with either a PL mount or Canon EF mount, providing a range of mounting options. Its 4K/6K/8K future-proof optics make the Zeiss CZ.2 Compact Zoom 28-80mm T2.9 an instant classic.
