It will be interesting if they are just taking their existing ZF lenses and building in the e-mount.

In this case, the optics would be exactly the same, but, the communication would be a bit different.. this also means that they will just as big as a ZF/ZE lens with an adapter to e-mount. But, Fuji has indicated that they are going FF as well.. so, it may be worth the investment for Zeiss.. it would be like their Tuoit lenses in FF.

You point is very valid.. a Zeiss for Nikon or Canon has a much larger potential in the second hand market if you ever decide to sell it.

fwiw, I wasn't just talking about the ability to sell it -- I was also thinking, what if other vendors make appealing bodies -- so, not just about resale (I'm more of a buy-and-hold kind of guy), but also about system-agnostic flexibility with "keeper" lenses.
