We always got reliable rumors about the Loxia and Batis lens specs and launch date. But it looks like Zeiss delayed the next upcoming Batis lens launch. Sources didn’t tell us the reason. We can only speculate: Easiest guess is that Zeiss wants to use production resources for the already available lenses first. Also note that the new Loxia announced in September is set to ship in late December only.

There is now some chatter that Sony will unveil “something” this week (Correction: announcement in 2-3 weeks!). I am now sure we will not get a new A7 or A9 camera but rather something else.
Let’s speculate: This could be a new E-mount camcorder, E-mount lens or E-mount accessory (LAE adapter?). Or maybe a major firmware update? Or what else could it be?
Tamron keeps patenting designs for Full Frame mirrorless system cameras (aka Sony FE). Egami spotted a new 60mm f/2.8 FE lens design patent. The recent months Tamron published five FE lens designs:
It’s not clear if Tamron planes to introduce these lenses with their own name or if they will sell the design to Sony or Zeiss.
