The Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 Super Speed

The Zeiss CP.2 Super Speed lenses are a line of fast-aperture cinema lenses within the CP.2 family. Compared to the standard CP.2 lenses, they not only offer the ability to shoot in lower light, but also have an improved optics system that features two aspheric and two abnormal partial dispersion elements. This corrects for optical aberrations, paving the way for even higher quality imaging.

Like the rest of the line of CP.2 lenses, the Super Speeds feature 14-blade aperture rings for smooth out-of-focus highlights and tight mechanical tolerances for precision adjustments. Across the board, the low distortion and color-matched optics make it simple to incorporate any of the CP.2 lenses into your shoot without worry of matching issues in post. They are built with standard Cine-style housing with standard focusing and iris gearing, manual iris control, and accurate imperial calibration scales.

Erik's Take

Zeiss’ Compact Prime CP.2 lenses combine the exceptional optics, color quality, and contrast characteristics that the Zeiss line of SLR lenses are known for, with fluid, protracted focus pulls. Geared focus and iris rings allow the CP.2s to integrate rapidly with follow-focus rigs, and uniform 114mm barrel diameters facilitate the use of clip-on matte boxes such as our Arri Clip-on and O’Connor O-Box. CP.2s are perfect for narrative work where precise and deliberate focus pulls are needed (such as work on a dolly or slider) and sharp, pristine images are desired. and the Super Speed lenses open up a stop or two more than their standard CP.2 counterparts, making them better for shooting situations with limited light, or where optimal bokeh is desired.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
