The Zeiss Lightweight Cinema zooms are exactly that: lighter and more cinema-ey.  But how do they stand up with a RED 8K camera?  

What do you choose if you want cinematic quality but don't want the expense or physical overhead of working with primes? What do you do if you need to respond quickly to what's happening in front of the camera? These are both questions that the Zeiss Lightweight Cinema Zooms could be a very good answer to. 

Price is £9,000 including VAT

RedShark's Creative Director, Bas Goossens has been trying the lenses out. He seems to like them. 

Here's his report.
