Anyway, to get to your question. The main difference between them is that the glass on GP.2 is color matched and hand picked by Zeiss. The iris control on the CP.2 is also manual, so you can do iris pulls. Iris and focus barrel are ready for a follow focus. Different front housing. You will also have a common aperture of T2.1 from 28mm to 100mm. And I read somewhere that the GP.2 have a small baffle over the rear element to control lens flare.
These are the differences, so they don't really differ that much optically but mainly on the housing. And yes, you can mix them at same stop.

The ZE series have 9 blades and the CP.2 is 14 blades. I will say this, the CP.2 have great ft markings.

Hi Nolan and Drew!
I was just doing a search on the internet and it brought me to my own old (3 yr old) post, which I had forgotten about and now see that Nolan and Drew both replied.
In case anyone else finds themselves reading this old post...
I bought a set of ZE lenses back in 2010 for a feature. I'm very happy with the glass.
