(SR3) New source says 16-35mm GM to be announced within one month. 135mm FE also coming soon.

The following rumor is from a new source (Thanks!). I had no time to verify the reliability of the info yet so take it with a grain of salt. But I figured I should post this now because the source says a new Sony announcement is imminent:
New portrait lens is coming. It will be FE 135 G Master lens. Definitely faster than latest Batis – f/2 or even f/1.8. It is in deep development state now so specification is not known yet.
16-35 f/2.8 is ready and will be presented very soon – less than the month
All we know so far from trusted sources is that the 16-35mm GM is ready for announcement. The 135mm FE rumor is also not really new and of course it makes sense for Sony to launch an E-mount version of their glorious [shoplink 48572]A-mount Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 lens[/shoplink].
But let me repeat again: So far trusted sources did not confirm the rumored May launch of the new GM lens or the development of a new 135mm FE lens.
