Re: No Sonnar

Whatever the name, Zeiss surely made some design decisions for this lens that pushed it more in one direction than another. They could have developed a 35/2 Biogon style lens too.

In addition to any other characteristics the Sonnar designation for the RX1 35/2 may mean this lens will have some character shot wide open rather than going for the ultimate in distortion free reproduction such as you see on a 35mm equivalent field of view ZM25/2.8 shot on APS-C, a combo which can come off looking somewhat sterile.

Different topic, an interesting interview with Mark Weir, Senior Manager of Technology and Marketing for Sony Electronics Inc. A99, RX1, NEX and NEX-VG900 discussed.
