Zeiss ZE Classic and CP.2 are the same line. there are many articles on net regarding that. Yes the mechanics are different and designed for cine use, and maybe the quality control.
I have personally compared ZE 50mm1.4 and 85mm 1.4 with CP2s 50 and 85mm side by side on set.
Milvus is a new line(weather sealed). 15, 35 are the same optics
Milvus 25mm 1.4 , 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 are new optical designs.
So is the 50mm and 85 mm in CP3.
Personally when i checked set of Milvus (25,35,50,85) all f1.4 i loved them. felt better than cp2. Even the Cp3 is all T2.
Just install Gears to Milvus lenses. Zeiss also is selling them. but you can get them made cheaper outside.
I have spoken to many zeiss representatives reconfirming.
I would suggest ask Zeiss to Demo Milvus (1.4Set). they are keen to sell them. and compare them with CP2/CP3 . at least you won't find that quality in other brand lenses. here the set sells for about 6000$ plus taxes. including the shipping case and some freebies. Its a steal for quality full frame glass. it will cover Red Monstro Sensor too.

Or is it just gossip?
I'm pretty sure that they're not.
