As everyone said on the changes. Also the focus ring rotates about 200 degrees from near to far, making precise focus easier when pulling focus, and the distance scales are very accurate. If you set focus at 12 feet, 12 feet is exactly what's in focus.
The coatings on the elements are a bit different, giving it a slightly warmer look, which is more in line with most Cine lenses. Not of particular interest for photographers, but I've used the CP.2 Macro lenses several times just for the absolute joy of manually focusing so accurately. It's really amazing to feel the difference in the focus ring. Not that I'd pay $5k out of my pocket for one, since I don't shoot video.
