Re: The question is: ZE, ZM or new designs?

What interests me is whether these will be new designs for FE mount.

They could be the DSLR Ze/Zf etc series with a new mount; which would be fine (some lovely lenses) but loses a chance to make them a bit smaller (if that's possible without loss of quality)

They could also be ZM lenses with a new mount. Which is likely less fine, as at least the wide ones will have corner issues.

The best thing would be new designs that get some of the compactness of the ZM series while perhaps being a little less close to the sensor plane and avoiding the resultant problems.

Sadly I think this is least likely: it would be a huge commitment. But we can but hope!

Of course we might get both; say one new design and a few of the old ones remounted...

Don't forget that Zeiss did the contact G lenses too

Man, if we just had the Contax series with a new mount, that would almost be a drop in. All you need is helicoid focusing. But what about the Biogon in that series?
