Zeiss Canon Mount Compact Primes. Spring 2010.
By: Jared Abrams
In response to the demand for cinema style lenses for the new breed of DSLR’s, Zeiss is working on a prototype Canon mount Compact Prime Set. The Compact Primes are similar to the Zeiss ZE/ZF line of still photo lenses favored by film makers for their manual focus and image quality. The Zeiss Compact Primes are made in Germany with hand picked glass. Unlike the Zeiss ZE /ZF line which is made by Cosina of Japan. Zeiss is also working on a support mount for the new line of cinema lenses to work seamlessly with any Canon DSLR. The planned shipping date is May 2010. Vincent Laforet does a great job of breaking down the Zeiss Compact Primes on his blog. Check it out Here.
