Zeiss 12-120mm T2.4 Zoom

Compatible Cameras: Aaton/Arri 16mm, Sony F5/Sony F55 (crop sensor mode)  With Adaptor: Sony FS7 (crop sensor mode), Blackmagic Pocket/ Micro Camera

Our thoughts

This is a slightly unusual lens based on the well-respected Zeiss 10-100mm s16mm zoom lens. This lens was modified by Optex to turn it into a macro lens. To achieve this they changed the focal length from 10-100 to 12-120.

This is a useful lens if you’re shooting documentary in HD (or 2K) on the F5 in cropped sensor mode and the FS7 crop sensor with an adapter. It gives you a 10 times zoom range, much longer than you would get on most s35mm zoom lenses.

Also usful with the black magic pocket cinema camera with an adaptor and of course the Aaton XTR Prod.
