The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 18mm f /3.6 Distagon T NIkon F Mount Lens is a cine lens designed for use with movie-capable HDSLR cameras. Featuring the F-mount, the 18mm lens is mountable on Nikon cameras with APS-C (0.99 x 0.66 / 25.1 x 16.7 mm) sensors. An aperture range of f/3.6-22 makes the lens suitable for professional-quality movie recording in varied lighting conditions. Made of 14 high-precision blades the lens iris remains round and symmetrical over the entire f-stop range, and helps reproduce pleasing out-of-focus highlights and a smooth bokeh. With a minimum focusing distance of 12 (300mm), the lens allows you to shoot objects from close, with a wide perspective. Featuring interchangeable mounts, the 18mm lens can be used with traditional cine cameras (Super 35 / Normal 35) as well. Using optional mounts, you can use the wide-angle lens with cameras based on APS-H and Micro Four-Third sensors. A special anti-reflex coating and internal light traps suppress flaring, thus reproducing enhanced images. Made with the cine manufacturing process and featuring tight tolerances, the lens ensures low distortion, high resolution and excellent color rendition for sharp, punchy images. The Compact Prime CP.2 18mm has a robust and reliable cine style housing.
