Zeiss CP3 Lenses Just Got an Impressive Update
No more waiting for the full-frame lenses with the right focal length to come out.
At its booth at NAB, Zeiss showed us the new update to its CP3 line of lenses. The CP3s can now be used on a wide range of full-frame cameras, like the Sony Venice and ARRI Alexa LF. Zeiss has you covered from 15mm-135mm, which are, available for purchase right now. In addition, the lenses now communicate metadata through the PL mount to your camera. You have all the usual metadata information a lens with this function provides plus two unique attributes. Available only through Zeiss, the CP3 can now communicate shading and distortion data and, with the click of a button, correct accordingly. Each lens with the metadata will cost you around $4700 each, but in a 3, 5, or 7-lens set, you can save anywhere from 7-15%. These lenses come in PL, EF, or E mount for versatility between cameras and can be switched out without destroying your bank account.
