(SR4) Zeiss has no plan to release any new Touit lens this year.

According to “Zeiss insiders” the company has no plan to release any new Zeiss Touit lens this year. And it’s yet unclear if Zeiss will launch any new Touit lens in 2016. As stated officially by Zeiss weeks ago their focus now is on Full Frame lenses. Zeiss will launch a wide angle Loxia FE lens in September/October. Just let’s hope Zeiss will increase the Loxia lens production because it’s still impossible to find them in Stock in USA (see BH).

P.S.: Zeiss US dropped the price on the APS-C E-mount Touit lenses:
$300 off on the Zeiss 12mm f/2.8 Touit at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
$221 off on the Zeiss 32mm f/1.8 Touit at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

Sony A6000 firmware 1.21 coming to the rest of the world soon (already available in Japan).


Image via SonyAlphaForum.

Some of you may remember that the Japanese A6000 cameras already got a firmware 1.21 two months ago. The firmware fixes some slow AF bugs. But outside Japan A6000 camera owners still rely on the “older” 1.2 firmware version. One source just told me the 1.21 firmware will be available outside Japan soon too (and he sent me the picture on top).
