Zeiss stated many times that the new Batis lenses are manufactured in Japan without to mention the exact company. And of course we already highly suspected Cosina is the one making those. One more proof of that is that the first Batis lenses are now for sale on eBay Japan (Click here) and they come with a 1 year Cosina(!) warranty.
Last week Zeiss also promised that they will increase the production of Batis lenses. Let’s hope you can get your preorder soon! I already spent my $$$ on the 90mm FE…
