If you like the idea of having am Drop-in Filter Adapter for E-mount cameras you can now join the crowfunding project at Indiegogo (Click here):

OWL combines camera adapter and exchangeable filter. User can change filters in a quick and convenient way during filming or photographing. It advances your workflow and cost saving. From now, you just need to prepare one filter to fit all your lenses. You will definitely have a total new experience in photography.

There are also two reviews of the OWL:
1. “The build quality looks and feels excellent and all parts are made from aluminium. The adapter lens mounts look high quality and durable, no lens wiggle here.” by Wim Arys https://www.wimarys.com/deo-tech-owl-filter-adapter-review/
2. “It has potentially less reflection and flaring than most front mounted filter ” by Nitsan Simantov https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL4JuXaCsc4

Zeiss FE 16-35mm review at Photozone: “not a perfect lens but a desirable one.”

Our severe German reviewer and friend Klaus from Photozone (Click here) tested the Zeiss FE 16-35mm lens:

It is capable of delivering sharp results at medium apertures. In fact it’s pretty much excellent around the 20mm mark especially considering the 36mp sensor of the test camera. The weakest spot is at 35mm where the corners could be better at f/4 and f/5.6 but beyond they are just fine actually.
Typical for most Sony-made lenses the build quality is impressive. The tightly assembled, weather-sealed metal body feels reassuring and it’s simply a joy to use it out there. While AF speed isn’t really an important value proposition on such a lens, it is decent although not outstanding.
