Introducing the Compact Zoom CZ.2 15-30/T2.9 and ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic MA 135/T1.9
OBERKOCHEN/Germany, THORNWOOD/USA , 27/03/2014.
At NAB Show 2014 in Las Vegas (April 7-10), ZEISS will be showing its entire portfolio of lenses at booth C9042. Everything from SLR lenses, such as the high-end Otus 1.4/55, to the Compact Prime CP.2 and Compact Zoom CZ.2, to the ARRI/ZEISS Ultra Prime, ARRI/ZEISS Master Prime and ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic lenses will be on display. The booth will also have the 3D-multimedia video glasses ZEISS cinemizer OLED, which functions as an electronic viewfinder for video cameras.
A highlight will be the first-ever unveiling in North America of both the ZEISS Compact Zoom CZ.2 15-30/T2.9 and the ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic MA 135/T1.9, the seventh focal length that now completes the successful Master Anamorphic family. The MA 135/T1.9 now completes the successful Master Anamorphic family jointly developed by ARRI and ZEISS and exclusively distributed by ARRI. ZEISS looks forward to presenting the new focal lengths of these two cine lens families to visitors to the NAB show. In addition, alongside other ZEISS lenses, the new products can be tried on the latest cameras at the ZEISS booth. Visitors will also be able to experience the cinemizer OLED. For the ambitious cinematographer, the cinemizer OLED also opens up fascinating shooting possibilities when connected to camera drones.
ZEISS is bringing two experienced DOPs to the NAB show to serve as application specialists: August Bradley from the US and Den Lennie from the UK. Lennie’s film “Escape”, captured with the ZEISS Compact Zoom and ARRI/ZEISS Ultra Prime and ARRI/ZEISS Master Prime lenses, premiered at the ZEISS Cine Lens Day 2013. Visitors are welcome to pose their questions and share their experiences with them, whether those experiences concern ZEISS lenses, the photography business in general, or how to gain a foothold in the film industry.

Canon press release:
Canon celebrates 11th straight year of No. 1 share of global interchangeable-lens digital camera market
TOKYO, Japan, March 27, 2014—Canon Inc. today announced that the Company’s interchangeable-lens digital cameras (digital SLR and compact-system cameras) have maintained the No. 1 share worldwide in terms of volume within the interchangeable-lens digital camera market for the 11-year period from 2003 to 2013.1
In addition to the interchangeable lenses, Canon also develops the key components—the CMOS image sensors and image processors—employed in its interchangeable-lens cameras. The most advanced of these technologies are incorporated in the Company’s flagship EOS-1D series. By applying these technologies to other models as well, Canon has successfully created a powerful product lineup that effectively responds to the needs of a wide range of users, from professionals to entry-level users, which has enabled Canon to maintain the top global share.
