UPDATE: Steve Huff, Sansmirror FE lens info are FAKE.

The info shared yesterday by Steve Huff  (50mm f/1.2 Zeiss) and some time ago by Sansmirror (FE lens roadmap) is almost certainly completely FAKE. They took for real that FAKE roadmap posted by a Chinese readers (See article here). YOu see the roadmap info he posted on top. So their info is wrong unless I am wrong and Steve and Thom got info from their own sources…

P.S.: Just to be clear: I don’t bash on Thom and Steve. It happens to myself to post wrong rumors from time to time :)
