Along with the new CZ.2 28-80mm cine lens, Carl Zeiss announced a new CP.2 25mm T2.1 cine prime lens – not to be confused with the current Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.9 lens.  The CP.2 25mm T2.1 lens will be available with interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E mounts.  It is a full frame lens, covering a 36 x 24mm image circle, so it works with cameras like the 5D Mark III, as well as Super 35mm cameras like the C300.

The Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.1 cine lens will be available in October for $4,500.
