Hope they're working on 85/1.8 AF FE mount too

This is sort of old news; they stated in their blog late last year that they are working on manual FE lenses that provide exif to camera. 3 should be announced this year. The AF lenses are gonna have to come from Sony with Zeiss badges on them.

Thanks but I didn't see that. So, if that is the case, the 85/1.8 I am waiting for might be a Sonnar Sony-Zeiss and not a Touit. It does not matter to me just as long as it has AF and hopefully with OSS.

Here's the old info on this from last year. The latest entry seems to confirm this is on track.
