The Zeiss 28-80mm T2.9 Compact Zoom CZ.2 Lens with EF Mount is a standard zoom lens that is optimized for motion picture production. The lens offers full-frame (36 x 24 mm) coverage and exhibits no focus shift over the zoom range. The cine-style housing features calibrated focus scales and industry standard gearing for focus, iris and zoom. At 7.72" long and with a weight of 5.5 lb, the 28-80mm is relatively compact and lightweight, which makes it ideal for handheld and Steadicam applications. The lens features a built-in lens support post, with 3/8" threading for use with available lens supports.

Zeiss Compact Zooms utilize T* anti-reflex coating and internal light traps to suppress flare, and a circular iris renders attractive bokeh. Interchangeable lens mounts are available in PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Micro 4/3, and Sony E, which means that users are not locked into a single camera system. A range of mounting options and 4K ready optics make the 28-80mm Compact Zoom a versatile and virtually "future proof" lens.
