Carl Zeiss joins the HD DSLR party

Carl Zeiss has been quick to see the direction HD DSLR filmmaking is heading and announced last week at the NAB show in Las Vegas a set of cine style lenses designed specifically for HD DSLR cameras.

The Compact Prime CP.2 lenses will fit directly to HD DSLR’s without adapters, allow for extreme accuracy of focus and greater aperture control and will also cover the full sensor area of cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark II.

Richard Schleuning from Zeiss talks to Cinema5D at NAB 2010 about the new line-up of cine style lenses.
