The Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 18mm f /3.6 T PL Bayonet Mount Lens is a cine lens designed for use with movie-capable HDSLR cameras. Featuring the PL mount, the 18mm lens is mountable on Super 35 and Normal 35 cameras with 0.98 x 0.73 (24.9 x 18.7 mm) and 0.86 x 0.63 (22 x 16 mm) size sensors respectively. 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. Interchangeable mount system allows compatibility with optional mounts for using the wide-angle lens with HDSLR cameras and Micro Four-Third systems. 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.
