Sony Lens Designer Motoyuki Ohtake made this presentation in Malaysia where he explained the design of the new Alpha Lenses (like the Zeiss 50mm). He also told us “We’ll make more lenses. Please wait for a while”

Personal Note: I like the honest and spontaneous being of Motoyuki Ohtake a lot! He is definitely not a marketing guy spreading void slogans. I want to see him more in future
UPDATE on Zeiss: Damn, Zeiss delayed the 50mm lens release and it is shipping in July only at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and SonyStore USA (via AlphaCameraDeals). In Europe at Wex UK and Amazon DE.
