The Zeiss CP.3 100mm T2.1 Compact Prime Lens - E Mount offers full-frame sensor coverage presented in the signature Zeiss look, giving you clean and crisp image rendering. The Zeiss CP.3 100mm T2.1 Compact Prime Lens - E Mount has improved mechanics and lens coatings compared to its CP.2 predecessor and shares the same physical length as the 135mm CP.3 lens, all while maintaining identical focus and iris gear positioning with the rest of the CP.3 lenses, relative to the mount. The Zeiss CP.3 100mm T2.1 Compact Prime Lens - E Mount shares the same 95mm front diameter as the other CP.3 lenses, and similar physical attributes across the line makes it easy to mix and match lens accessories such as matte boxes, follow focuses, lens supports, and lens control motors.
Another feature handed down from the preceding CP.2 lenses is the interchangeable mounts. This lens comes with an E mount installed. Though, if you wish to fit your CP.3 lens to a different camera, the lens mount can be swapped by the user for a separately available mount of a different kind. If you like the bokeh in your images to be round, even after stopping down, you will be pleased to know that the 14-bladed iris, made famous by the CP.2 lenses, has been retained.
Please Note: While the CP.3 lenses are designed for a degree of user-serviceability regarding the mount, for ideal performance and calibration, we recommend that mount swaps and other lens adjustments be done by a trained lens technician at a service center.
Signature Zeiss Look
Zeiss lenses are known for their clean and crisp image rendering. The CP.3 series of lenses is no different. This CP.3 lens will accurately color-match to other ZEISS cinema lenses inside and out of the CP.3 range. The CP.3 lenses feature improved lens coatings and anti-reflection masking over the CP.2 range for increased contrast and reduced flare, important for capturing content with the intent of an HDR-format release.
New Ergonomic Design
For enhanced ergonomics over the previous-generation CP.2 lenses, the CP.3 lens barrel has been reshaped to be more similar to the renowned Zeiss Ultra Prime lenses. This new shape is easier to handle, and takes up less physical space than the original Compact Prime design. An even weight distribution ensures that these lenses will be at home handheld, locked down on a tripod, or flown on a Steadicam or motorized gimbal.
