That's a good question but remember one thing: Zeiss doesn't make the "Zeiss" lenses for Sony cameras.

Sony makes the Zeiss branded lenses for Sony cameras.

According to Sony & Zeiss these lenses are built to Zeiss specifications (whatever that means) but they aren't made by Zeiss.

You are right that his is the case for lenses like the 24mm 1.8 for NEX or all the ZA lenses for Sony alpha. But these new lenses are different, they are not being released by Sony, they are going to be released by Zeiss themselves and they target both Sony and Fuji X system. These are not Sony lenses.

Then I stand corrected. Thank You.
