Image courtesy: Fotointern

Ok this isn’t really a big news for us but for the first time since their foundation in 1846! Zeiss decided to drop their “Carl” name on lenses. The first lenses with the pure “Zeiss” mark only are the Touit. In their pre-production version they still had the full “Carl Zeiss” definition. But now it’s Zeiss only.

oth Zeiss Touit lenses, the 12 and 32mm primes are in Stock now at Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

Photoarena posted a rendering of how this could look (Image on top). And a blurred picture of the real camera has been posted by Svartling:

The S1 will feature a 1/2.3 inch Exmor sensor which is exactly the same size of Cybershot compact cameras.
