(SR5) Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 to be announced too!


This is the leaked Zeiss 35mm FF NEX lens. But there will be another 55mm prime too!


I am back with rumors from my old long time sources! These source told me months ago a Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 Full Frame E-mount lens would be released. And on Saturday the manual of these lens has been leaked (article here). The lens design can be seen on top of this post. Now, the same sources also said a new 55mm f/1.8 FE Zeiss lens will come! No word on pricing yet. I just hope they did it f/1.8 instead of f/1.4 to keep pricing low :)

The Sony Germany site that leaked the Zeiss 35mm pancake lens removed the content. Just a reminder, the Zeiss pancake text clearly stated this:

The Sonnar T FE 35mm F2.8 ZA is compatible with the range of a 35mm format image sensor. The other lenses are compatible with the range of an APS-C  sized image sensor. A camera equipped with a 35mm format image sensor can be set to shoot at APS-C size. For details on how to set your camera, refer to its instruction manual.


Note on previous A7000 fake image: The site that sent me the wrong picture didn’t send me the NEX-FF or other rumors. So this is the only fake you saw on SAR. Needless to say that sites that post or send fakes for purpose will no more linked on SAR.
