Go to min. 2:30 to see the Cosina fab and how they make their (handmade) lenses.
While we are still waiting to get our hands on the upcoming new Sony NEX lenses (like the soon coming Zeiss 24mm f/1.7) there is also “hope” coming from third party lens makers. According to our very first and new “Cosina source” there will be a new all manual and ultra fast Voigtländer lens coming by end of the year 2011. Their current only lens for mirrorless cameras is the [shoplink 6619 ebay]Nokton 25mm for m43 (Click here to see it on eBay)[/shoplink]. The source is new so please take the rumor with a grain of salt. But It might not be casual that at the end of the video on to the Cosina Designer talks about the NEX system… :)
And now the big question for you:
P.S.: What you might don’t know is that Cosina also produces many of the current manual Zeiss lenses.
P.P.S: A while ago there was a [shoplink 5973 ebay]Nokton 25mm with NEX adapter on eBay[/shoplink].
