There will most likely be a native fast FE 85mm-ish sony Zeiss lens out by Photokina this fall. I'd expect it to be revealed in August.

Just to clarify. There is no such thing as FE mount. There is only one mount, which is the E-mount. Then you can get E (aps-c crop) or FE (full frame) lenses for it.

Remember also that Zeiss will unveil a range of full frame glass for the E-mount at the Photokina. I believe they have planned 5 lenses. They will be manual focus but with electronic connection for EXIF data and probably also aperture control. It will be stills glass, so not super expensive cine glass.

I'm looking forward to that announcement too about a new Zeiss 1.8/85 AF. I really don't care if it is a Sonnar for full-frame or Touit for APS-C.
