I'm gonna throw out a wacky guess. Since Andrea (I believe that's how his name is spelled) mentioned 'unusual specs', I'm guessing this mystery lens will be a tilt-shift zoom, something like 16-21mm/F4. I have no idea if a tilt-shift can be a zoom, just spit-balling.

I can't think of any reason that a zoom couldn't be designed as a tilt/shift, it would just have to have a larger image circle, worst case scenario, it's a bit bigger than normal.

I for one would be very interested in a T/S zoom.

I have a Canon FD SSC 35/2.8 Tilt/Shift, I love it, and would love the TSE 17, but the size and weight are significantly higher than I'd like, a compact T/S Zoom would be so very tempting to me.

And for the love of all that is holy, Sony please announce a 35mm sister lens to the FE 55/1.8--similar size/weight, optical/mechanical excellence. I think many FE shooters would line up to buy that lens, myself included.


A nice 40-45mm prime would be popular I think, I myself do like the FOV from lenses in this FL range.

I don't have any AF lenses, so if I want a picture, I have to do more than squeeze a button.
