Hello Everyone,

 

I'm doing some research to get the best option quality/price for DSLR cinematography lenses.

 

Zeiss CP2 looks great but they are quite expensive for my budget. But I found this Zeiss SLR lenses on their cinematography section http://lenses.zeiss....slr_lenses.html

 

So here are my questions: Has someone already used this SLR lenses? Is there a big difference with the CP2s? Are any other good options (on other brands) similar than those? 

 

Thank you very much !! 

 

Greetings from Ecuador !

I haven't used the standard still ones, so I can't directly attest, but I've read/been told that it's the same glass essentially, just in different housing.

 

With the CP.2s, you're getting a standard sizing, gear teeth, etc.

Not sure if there's a difference with breathing or anything though. You'd probably have to google around. I'm sure someone has done a comparison.
