(SR4) Three new Zeiss FE lenses will be announced in October 2016?



Two sources told us there will be three new Zeiss branded FE lenses in October at the PhotoPlus show in NYC. I am yet not sure if these are all Sony “Zeiss branded” lenses or a mix of Zeiss branded and Zeiss Batis/Loxia lenses.

One source added some info on this. He said Zeiss managers didn’t tell them exactly what’s coming but just as an indication they said these “kind of” lenses are requested by photographers:

Zeiss Batis 35mm f/1.8,
Zeiss 24-70mm f/2 (similar compact size to f/4 version)
Sony Zeiss 16-35mm f/2.8.

Sounds really impossible to get a 24-70mm f/2.0 or f/2.8 zoom with the same f/4.0 size. But as I wrote this are just “requested” lenses and probably do not match the exact specs of the “real” lenses that will be announced at PhotoPlus.
