Good news folks! I just learned from a trusted sources that unlike the other Loxia lenses the new 21mm Loxia is not going to be a modified version of the current [shoplink 9804 ebay]ZM T* 2,8/21 Biogon lens[/shoplink]. Zeiss decided to make a real new design of the lens specifically made for E-mount:

  1. The lens has a Distagon and not a Biogon design. Just like the new Milvus 21mm lens.
  2. The lens has a 11 elements and nine group design (Milvus has 16 elements and 13 group design).
  3. The lens has high resolution on all the frame with low distortion and color fringing and appealing bokeh
  4. The lens will ship in December
