The SLR lenses (ZEISS Otus, ZEISS Milvus and ZEISS Classic lens families) offer filmmakers a precise and smooth focus pull, a solid metal barrel, high contrast and an amazing bokeh, while the CSC lenses (ZEISS Loxia lens family) are the perfect companions for Sony PXW FS7, PXW FS5 and for the mirror-less Alpha cameras due to the small size and robustness.
