Now that I've actually spent some time with the Zeiss Compact Zooms, and fortunate enough to speak with one of the designers in the process, I have a new respect for what they have done with the 28-80mm and 70-200mm.
These aren't still lenses or still designs. The whole thing from the ground up was done. Prior to NAB 2013 I used damn near every 70-200mm you can get. Canon, Nikon, Leica's rather nice and pricey lens. And I own the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS as well. Which is why I sort of open my eyes wider when I saw that the Zeiss CZ really didn't breath that much. And when I got home to inspect the images I was even more impressed. The build quality, the options, the proper cinema mechanics, minimal breathing, and most importantly no image shift. These are bloody impressive. And currently the only cinema zooms designed from the ground up for FF35 coverage.
I'm having such a hard time not pulling the trigger on them right this second. I'd kill for that 28-80mm to be a 24/25-80mm. I told myself to make a decision within two months on these, but currently I have no problem saying that 70-200mm is likely the highest quality lenses of that range on the market.
