Ilovehatephoto interviewed Zeiss managers and got those interesting answers:
1) About future FE lenses: “we can expect about 5 new Full-Frame E-mount lenses, including 2 to 3 new ones in 2016.”
2) About macro and tilt shift lenses: “We are well aware of the lack of specialty lenses in the FE-mount system and we are working on developing some for this system. ”
3) About the Batis backorder issue: “We have to admit that we have been surprised by how popular the A7 markII series (A7II, A7rII and now the A7sII) has become over the past few months. The demand for the Batis lenses have been a lot higher than expected. We are working on this to reduce the waiting time as quickly as possible.”
4) About wide angle lens development: “The short flange distance between the sensor and the rear element is an engineering challenge for ultra wide-angle lenses.”
Furthermore Zeiss stressed to say that their focus is on the Full Frame E-mount system and they do not plan to release any new Touit lens for the ASP-C system any time soon.
