Zeiss has announced its third Compact Zoom lens, the CZ.2 15-30mm T2.9 lens, to go along with the current CZ.2 28-80mm T2.9 and CZ.2 70-200mm T2.9 lenses.

As with other Zeiss CZ.2 lenses, the new 15-30mm T2.9 has an interchangeable mount system for compatibility with PL, EF, F, MFT and E mounts. The lens is compatible with full frame (e.g., 5D Mark III) and APS-C (e.g., EOS C300) cameras.
Pricing for the new CZ.2 15-30/T2.9 will be under €20,000. Based on the US prices of the other CZ.2 lenses, the new lens will probably land at $19,900 in the US. It should be available to buy in April 2014. Start saving now.
The new Rokinon T2.2 cine lens is available for pre-order for $529. Like other Rokinon cine lenses, the 16mm T2.2 lens features standard gearing for both focus and iris rings. The aperture is de-clicked for smooth aperture adjustments and includes depth of field markings on the lens barrel.
The Rokinon 16mm T2.2 cine lens is built for APS-C and smaller sensors, and is available for Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, Sony A and Micro Four Thirds mounts. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
