According to a “Zeiss source” there is no plan to release another new Batis lens in 2015. Their first goal now is to see how good the current two Batis lenses will sell and get a feedback from readers about the prefered future focal lengths. I will do a Poll about that on SAR very soon!
But there will be one wide angle Loxia announcement soon. I have beent told the lens will be shown at the PhotoPlus show in October. The current FE Loxias are based on the ZM line. So the wide angle lens could be too based on one of those:
