Okay, so I have to ask....

1) If this one is "compact", what the heck does the regular-sized version look like?

2) Why on earth is it so big?  Now granted...size matters...but what requires a 35mm f/2.1 lens to be so huge

1- The Compact Prime Super Speed, Master Prime and Digi Prime series are bigger and heavier.

2 - It's partly for standardizing on the same size and shape among all focal lengths in the CP line, so when you swap lenses, you don't have to change the position of the follow focus or aperture controls, they all are in the same position whether it be a 15mm or a 135mm prime. Also, everything is calibrated to exacting cinema standards: focus distances are accurate, greatly reduced vignetting and lens flare, and also they all fit the same matte box for shading the lens.
