p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · New Zeiss 70-200mm ZE?


Hi,

Carl Zeiss officially confirmed the release of new video lenses in 2012. But this might also be interesting to us, still shooters

In the FDTimes video journal, Zeiss confirmed we will see a lens wider than 18mm (I guess it will be the rumoured 16mm) and another, longer than 100mm, lens. Sure, these lenses will be CP2 video lenses, but CP2 are just reworked ZE/ZF2 lenses, aren't they?

What's even more interesting is that Zeiss announced a new line of "compact zooms that fit the small HDSLR" and which "will cover full still format 24x36 mm". There is a picture of the first video tele-zoom to be announced in the journal and on zeissrumors.com, but they removed the focal length and aperture. Still, you can see in FDT that it's fairly compact: "length: approx. 250 mm diameter: approx. 95 mm" (compact compared to the CP2 line of course).

So, anybody here thinks Zeiss would release new 24x36 lenses for dslr video but not for photography? I don't, I think we will see new ZE/ZF2 zooms next year

Nice, a series of new anamorphic lenses coming up too.

A manual focus 70-200 without stabilization would be a very very niche lens I must say. Especially as the newer Canon and Nikon ones with those fancy gizmos are pretty darn good optically as well.

And indeed, very nice to read people think 3D is going to decline and anamorphic is coming back!

They're a pretty diverse company these days, in many differentiated markets, so maybe not. I think a ZA 70-200/2.8 may happen to pair the ZA24-70/2.8.

Apparently the only AF lenses from them for some years must be ZAs. But you never know.

Regarding 3D, have you seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e-3i1ploR4

Pretty damn sophisticated, and it looks like they're using Zeiss' compact primes.

I love my contax n 70-200 AF lens!
Maybe they will use that design and improve on it.

I sure hope this is the pinnacle of 3D for now.
Couldn't see any compact prime. Zeis Ultra Primes and Cooke Angenieux DP zooms seems to be the ticket. Interesting as I seem to remember LOTR being shot with Master Primes. Fitting those in a 3D rig wouldn't be much fun I guess.

The lenses shown on Zeissrumours look huge, and probably cost and weigh accordingly too....
