Zeiss Loxia 50mm no more in Stock in almost any worldwide store. New review by Varietyoflight.


Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-01 um 11.14.14
This is very strange: For many weeks now the Zeiss Loxia 50mm lens is out of Stock in almost any US-EU-Japan store!
It’s not in Stock at BHphoto or Adorama. It’s not in Stock in Germany. Only Store having a small Stock of lenses left in-house is Digitalrev (Click here). Don’t know if the first production run has been sold out or if there is some issue on the production line. One of the dealers I am in contact with asked Zeiss many times about when they wills end them a Stock. And Zeiss answered that they still cannot say when. Strange!

In the meantime check out the Loxia 50mm lens review at Varietyoflight:

The image quality is very good. This lens indeed eliminates some of the typical flaws of older M-mount lenses adopted on E-mount (full-frame) and as a result sharpness wide open can not only be seen in the very center of the image but also to the sides. Overall it seems that a very balanced image quality has been achieved where none of the artifacts like CA or vignetting sticks out. The only artifact which appears a little bit more prominent is distortion which might be rather annoying when shooting architecture/geometry but which can be easily corrected in post production.

And Mirrorlessons posted a set of Sony A7s & Zeiss Loxia gallery pictures.

Sigma (finally!) is seriously considering to make lenses for the Sony FE system.


Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki has been interviewed at Imaging Resource. And he finally hints that the making lenses for E-mount system is possible because “there aren’t so many lenses”  in the system and “we get lots of requests” to make lenses for E-mount. He also said that taking current Sigma FF lenses and make them E-mount “would be very helpful“.

Still, Kazuto Yamaki also recently stated that “E-mount diameter is small and makes it difficult to design high quality Full Frame lenses” (Full SAR article here). So let’s ee if Sigma will take the final step and really make those FE lenses…
