NEX FF - SAR tipping Zeiss 24-70 zoom with release
Sep 19, 2013


There's another SAR rumor posted last night about the FF NEX and lenses, but an interesting one.  My apologies if mentioned before in this forum but I couldn't see it.

They're tipping (SR5) a Zeiss 24-70 in e-mount.  Aperture not disclosed.  Could be the same as the f2.8 A mount version with the alternative mount or possibly a smaller slower lens akin to the new APSC 16-70.  They're seeing the source as highly reliable, and are tipping an October announcement.  (It seems the rumor of a September announcement can now be taken as a dud.)

Adding the lens rumors together would give a 35/2.8, a 55/1.8 and a 24-70/?  to start.  So where's the WA prime?  Surely a lens around 24mm is an absolutely essential lens in the range, and the one that's potentially hardest to source from legacy glass and get excellent results (given as yet unknown possible issues with micro lensing/angles of incidence/corner IQ, etc).

To add to your rumor mill.....

Cheers, Rod
