(SR5) First image shot on the new Meyer Optik Görlitz Sony lens!

Fashion Shoot Meyer Optik Görlitz Los Angeles, California

I just got this from a Meyer “internal source”:

The image above from photographer Firat Bagdu is the first image you see that is shot with the upcoming new Meyer Optik Görlitz prime lens with native Sony mount (not clear if A or E). The lens will be announced on April 14 at 11am London time (yeah same time as the Zeiss announcement!).

The lens is a mid range prime with “near-macro” capability. The look of the lens is historic but the internal lens design is new. This will be Meyer’s most technologically advanced lens. I have been told the specs are the same of one of their historic lenses. You take the guess which one it could be:
Primoplan 25mm f/1.9
Lydith 30mm f/3.5
Primagon 35mm f/4.5
Trioplan 50mm f/2.5
Primoplan 58mm f/1.9
Telefogar 90mm f/4.5

P.S.: The lens will also be available for Canon-Nikon-MFT-Fuji-Leica mount…

Sony launched a new teaser for their press conference at the NAB show on April 17 at 2pm Las Vegas time.I have been told Sony will announce plenty of new products. You can follow the video live stream here on SonyAlphaRumors! Mark the event on your calendar!

What can we expect? New camcorder of course, maybe an FF E-mount camcorder and also first 8K camcorder prototypes. A surprise could be the launch of a new A7III but I that’s just a pure guess for now…

The Zeiss teaser at Zeiss Lens Russia (here on Facebook).

We got a confirmation that Zeiss has scheduled a product announcement event on April 14 at around 11am London time. It’s yet not 100% confirmed but it’s highly likely they will announce at least a new Batis 18mm lens!

Just least hope Zeiss will increase the production of all current Batis lenses too!
