Zeiss Shows Off Cine Zoom Lenses That Can Cover RED's 8K Full-Frame Sensor

Zeiss made a decision a number of years ago that they were going to make their cine lenses as versatile as possible, and their newest cine zooms are all capable of easily covering RED's new 8K full-frame/vista-vision sensor. With their interchangeable mounts, it means that they can work with virtually any camera system and lens mount. We also talked about their other lenses, including their all-manual full-frame E-mount lenses:

Zeiss has two lenses so far in the Loxia full-frame E-Mount line:

You can find all sorts of Zeiss full-frame cine zoom options over on B&H:

  • Zeiss 15 to 30mm CZ.2 Compact Zoom Lens — $23,900
  • Zeiss 28-80mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens — $19,900
  • Zeiss 70-200mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens — $19,900
  • Three Lens Zoom Package — $59,900

Obviously the cine lenses above are rental items for the vast majority of us, but it's good to know that if you're looking for something to cover full-frame, Zeiss has you covered from primes all the way to the highest-end zooms.

Top of the line? Nope. There are cine zooms that cost more than this set of three.
Interchangable mounts make these great for a rental house.

Whoops! Didn't pay nearly close enough attention to what I was commenting on.

Mostly I meant any manner of cine zoom is not going to be an ownership scenario.

the author "NFS stuff" ? Really? Who is the author of the article behind such a poor name "NFS stuff"??? I can forgive NFS not being a film website but the website about the gear and adds, but "NFS stuff" is way too much. I want to read an author and his opinion and not the anonymous person which doesn't takes the responsibility for whatever he/she claims or writes in the anonymous article.

Ahh... now I get it. the author "NFS stuff" is a guy who gets to list the gear and specs. I hope I see Renee, Joe, Robert, Matthew and others around the blog more often.
