(SR5) Zeiss next Batis lens will be a 40mm f/2.0 CF FE!

Rumors keep getting in in thes last days! Nokishita reports that Zeiss is testing a new Batis 40mm f/2.0 CF FE lens. These are the lens specs:

Distagon optical design
The shortest shooting distance is 0.24 m
With focus limiter (Full / ∞ ~ 0.4 m / 0.5 m to 0.24 m)
Filter diameter is 67 mm
Batis Size close to 85mm (40mm is slightly smaller)

I am not sure what “CF” stands for. But Zeiss made CF lenses for Hasselblad (here on eBay) and they had in lens shutter mechanism. But the best guess is that CF stands for “Close Focus”.

It is also unclear yet when this lens will be announced.

A source just sent me this image of the new RX100VI. The camera has a new 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 lens and “super fast AF”. I am yet not 100% sure this image is legit but I guess it is the real thing. Expect it to be announced wthin the next 24 hours.

(SR5) Sony RX100VI announcement at around 3-4 pm London time!

Today at 3.15pm London time Sony will announce the new RX100MVI. This image shows the new camera which will have a new 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 lens. Much faster autofocus with a new generation sensor. Also the EVF will be improved. I think this is a perfect Travel camera. Having 200mm instead of 100mm at the tele end makes a huge difference. And the amazing is the size will be about the same as the RX100V! – #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #sonyalpha #sonyphotography #sonyphotogallery #sonyalpharumors #sonyalphagear #SonyPhotoGallery #SonyAlphasClub #SonyMirrorless #sonyalphaphotos #sony  #sonyalphauniverse #sonyalphaclub #photogear #photography #photographer #bokeh #inspirational #mirrorless

(SR3) Will Sony announce the new RX100VI on June 6th?

I just got this:
There might be a RX100VI on June 6th but I am not 100% completely sure.
I think there is a fair chance this info may be right. Also because Sony indeed registered a new camera model last month with the code “WW771132”. Nokishita believes this is a new RX camera.
How will the RX100VI be?
I think we will have a lightly improved new generation sensor. The major improvement will be faster autofocus and improved EVF.
If you can confirm the June 6 launch and got some info about the new RX100VI please drop me < message at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. Or do use the anonymous contact form you see on the top of the right sidebar. Thanks!
