Reminder: The worldwide first Zeiss Loxia Full Frame E-mount lens preorder are now running at BHphoto:

Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar T* Lens for Sony E Mount (Click here)
Cinema5D had the new Loxia lenses in their hands and posted some image samples within their short preview.
For me, the two Loxias were the last missing pieces to make the A7s a perfect “go-anywhere-with-me” camera. They are built as nicely as the camera itself (metal housing) and the full package feels very much like a much more expensive Leica rangefinder camera. The nicest touch about the lenses is their very small size (apart from their built quality) – and I think that was the priority when they were designed. Typically for Zeiss, the lenses are extremely sharp and have hardly any noticeable distortion or vignetting (which can’t be said about all 50mm photo lenses on the market – I used the Canon f/1.4 50mm on the A7s before and while the image is very nice, the lens vignettes heavily when shooting wide open).
