Distagon? I'm not familiar with Zeiss manual lenses. Check out Zeiss team reply dated March 28, 2014, 2:40pm way down this Touit article


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



Distagon is a lens design by Zeiss (like Tessar, Sonnar, Planar). It is primarily a DSLR design so I am not sure if it will be used for E-mount.

Within Sony-Zeiss collaboration, note the differences (A-mount followed by E-mount):
Sony DT 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 ZA Vario Sonnar
Sony E 16-70mm f/4 OSS ZA Vario Tessar

Sony 24-70mm/2.8 ZA Vario Sonnar
Sony FE 24-70mm/4 OSS ZA Vario Tessar

Sony 24mm/2 ZA Distagon (FF lens)
Sony E 24mm/1.8 ZA Sonnar

Sony 50mm/1.4 ZA Planar
Sony FE 55mm/1.8 ZA Sonnar

Sony A-mount 85mm/1.4 and 135/1.8 are Planar and Sonnar respectively. If I were to guess, the E-mount version for both will likely be Sonnar (I haven't looked into it but it is said that one of Sony's trio of plastic fantastics, Sony 85mm/2.8, uses Sonnar formula but of course not marketed as a ZA lens for good reasons, including pricing target of about $300).
