A lot of folks want to see actual footage instead of just numbers when it comes to the practical look and feel of a particular lens. And as usual, Zeiss delivered. Here is a small collection of short videos that feature different primes and even a few zooms that Zeiss currently offers. The first video is a “Sizzle Reel” with a lot of quick takes from different scenes using different lenses. Zeiss used a range of focal lengths including the 15mm T2.1, 21mm T2.9, 25mm T2.1, 28mm T2.1, 35mm T2.1, 50mm T2.1, 85mm T2.1, 100mm T2.1 CF, 135mm T2.1, and lastly the 70-200mm T2.9 and shot a nice panning shot and a static rotating shot with each focal length. Take a look and gather all you can from this collection of results.

Possibly my favorite of the bunch which showcases a variety of CP.2 lenses is a video titled The Foundry. Pay close attention to the range of focal lengths used, from wide encompassing shots, to tight close focus shots.

Another quick video showcasing the CP.2 100mm Close Focus abilities. While not a true Macro, the CP.2 100mm is an impressive lens for specialty shots.
