Is Zeiss still relevant in 2021?
2

Pardon the provocative title

I know when Sony FE launched they leaned heavily on Zeiss, with varied results. In time they pivoted away from Zeiss to launch their own flagship lenses with the GM line. Now with all the other 3rd party manufacturers in the mix... particularly Sigma & Tamron... the value proposition of Zeiss is less clear, at least from a purely objective POV. They have a lot of lenses in desperate need of updates too (my 24-70/4 and the 35 1.4 come to mind).

Am I off base?
