A99 with the Zeiss 135mm lens (Courtesy of Adalbert).
A new source told me the current Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 A-mount lens would get replaced at Photokina. The new version will have “SSM” focusing mechanism. There will be no optical change as the current 135mm f/1.8 is already close to perfection (and also $100 discounted at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto and SonyStore).
