Zeiss sent Compact Prime lenses for evaluation

Zeiss sent over a set of CP2 Compact Primes with Canon EF mounts for us to evaluate.  I'm shooting a commercial spot tomorrow and I will try these lenses on a Canon 5D.  The CP2s were designed for film-style shooting so they have film-style gears and focus markings, cover the full frame of the 5D sensor (no vignetting), are made in a cine style housing and connected to a EF mount, PL mount or F mount depending on your application.  Best of all, they are not that expensive compared to other quality film lenses.

I'll post my evaluation after the shoot and those coming to workshop on Saturday can see the lenses first hand: http://www.canonbootcamp.com
