Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 50mm T2.1 Makro (MFT)

Available Today

The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses are the world’s first cine lenses designed for use with dSLR cameras. They are manufactured to even higher standards than standard Zeiss ZE and ZF lenses with 14 blade aperture rings, and tighter tolerances with low distortion and color matching. They are built with standard Cine style housing with standard focusing and iris gearing, manual iris control, and accurate lens calibration scales.

This is the 50mm T2.1 Makro in MFT (micro 4/3rds) mount. It’s a sharper lens than the standard 50mm CP.2 lens, and of course has closer focusing capability (as close as 10 inches). Please note it’s also a somewhat larger lens. Due to the weight of the lens, we recommend using a lens support such as the Zacuto Lens Support (not included) when mounting to a Micro 4/3 camera or camcorder.

Please note: If you change the mount on our CP.2 lenses (yes, we can tell, we seal them) there will be a $250 per lens fee on return.

Zeiss’ 50mm Makro Compact Prime CP.2 lens combines the exceptional optics, color quality, and contrast characteristics that the Zeiss line of SLR lenses are known for, with fluid, protracted focus pulls. Geared focus and iris rings allow the CP.2s to integrate rapidly with follow focus rigs. Moreover, the lens’s Makro moniker indicates it’s ability to focus from as close as 10” away making it a go to lens for extreme close-ups. Unlike the other CP.2 lenses, the 50mm Makro’s 134mm barrel diameter makes it incompatible with any of our clip-on matte boxes. CP.2s are perfect for narrative work where precise and deliberate focus pulls are needed (such as work on a dolly or slider) and sharp, pristine images are desired
