The Zeiss Compact Zoom’s Focus shift – a precise mechanical adjusting concept which uses three independent lens movements, with the goal of stabilizing the image position during zoom.
Used to compensate for the loss of clarity on small details when focus is adjusted, Focus Shift provides a sharp image without refocusing.

ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses feature exquisite optics in a robust, durable package – two characteristics that will surely remain desirable for decades to come. And thanks to their interchangeable mounts, Cinema Zoom lenses offer the possibility to upgrade to any number of existing or future cine and still cameras while still using the same set of lenses. Additionally, they all cover a full-frame image format without vignetting.
