(SR5) Zeiss will announce the three E-mount primes on May 7!


Good news folks! Zeiss is going to announce three E-mount primes on May 7! We will get the Zeiss Planar 32mm f/1.8 and the Distagon 12mm f/2.8 (with shipment in June) and the Macro Planar 50mm f/2.8 (shipment late 2013). All three lenses cover the APS-C sensor area and not will not cover the FF area of the current VG900 and future FF NEX. But they will of course work in crop mode on those cameras too.

I am still not sure about the exact price but it should be a little bit over $1000 like the current [shoplink 8450]Zeiss 24mm f/1.8[/shoplink] lens.

Woudl you love to get a High End A9r with new larger body design and this new 102MP sensor?
