Sony’s goal for 2015.
Sony still has a long way to go to win the Full Frame battle against Nikon and Canon. And if Sony engineers are reading this they may check out these two articles to learn what should be done:
I agree on 99% of what these two guys wrote :)
Zeiss “tweets” that there is no delay on Loxia 50mm shipment. It’s out of Stock because of the high demand!
@CarlZeissLenses well I’ve been waiting for mine for one-and-a-half month now.

Carl Zeiss posted that tweet to deny that the Loxia 50mm lens could be out of Stock for the next months. And on Facebook Zeiss writes:
There are rumors out there stating that our Loxia 2/50 will be out of stock for months. Let us state that this is not true! While it is out of stock with some dealers at the moment due to high demand, we are constantly producing new batches and shipping them to distributors and dealers. So please, don’t worry!
Fact is that no EU and US stores has them in Stock now (and they were supposed to be in Stock back in October). So let’s hope the lens will indeed ship soon as promised by Zeiss. By the way, Thanks Zeiss for officially giving us an answer!
