At this year’s IBC show in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Zeiss will present two new cinema lenses: the 15-30mm T2.9 CZ.2 Compact Zoom as well as the ARRI/Zeiss Master Anamorphic MA 100mm T1.9 cine lens. Both lenses complement the existing lineups of CZ.2 and ARRI/Zeiss Master Anamorphic lenses respectively.
The 15-30/T2.9 will cover the full 36x24mm image circle and will deliver 4K UHD resolution. It will feature an interchangeable mount system, so that it can be used on cameras with PL-mount, EF-mount, F-mount, E-mount and MFT-mount. Weighing in at 2.5 kgs (5.7 lbs), the lens will be available for NAB in April of 2014, at a price “under €20,000” (US-$ 26,000). Pricing and availability of the MA 100/T1.9 have not been announced yet.
The full press release is available on the Zeiss website.
