We are planning to use REDONE MX for our feature film. I would like to know what may be the difference in the quality if I use Zeiss Compact Prime lenses (CP2) instead of Arri Ultra prime lenses.

There is a good amount on this across the internets. Cp.2 are pretty much the SLR still lenses rehoused for cinematography...not to say that is a terrible thing though they are pretty good lenses still... there is minor breathing, they are slower and have a less consistent t stop through the range, and I'm not sure about how good the coverage is for 4.5k ws if that is something you are doing. If money is a consideration I would also think about standard speeds as an option.

I'd look into the Cooke Speed Panchros personally, or maybe the new Leica lenses coming out for cine work.... I love the Compact Primes, though but they are nowhere NEAR the quality of Ultra Primes or proper cinema lenses... those extra thousands of dollars to make a difference... But still, good lenses FOR THE PRICE.
