New Lenses from Germany

Apparently a couple of new Zeiss lenses are just around the corner.



  • ZE 25 f/2

  • ZE 15 f/2.8


Both lenses are said to become available for ZE and ZF mounts.

Is the 15mm lens rumored to be rectilinear or a diagonal fisheye ?

Probably rectilinear just like the Zeiss ZM/Leica M mount: http://lenses.zeiss.com/photo/en_DE/products/ikon/distagont2815zm.html
Highly anticipated lens, and probably a matching price tag (M mount sells for USD 4500 :o).
1D IV, 5D III, 5D II, 16-35L II, 24-70L II, 24-105L, 70-200L IS II, 300L IS, Σ 50, Σ 85, 1.4x III, 580EX II, 600EX-RT

Noone can say how much but availability (or better announcement) is expected to be in Oct  or early November.

This is Zeiss, after all, so the answer is "If you have to ask ..."

What is it with Zeiss and odd nominal focal lengths?

Yes.

These are Pro Lenses so my guess would be $2000-4000.  I will never have one because they are not needed in my field; and I rather have a new body over an extra lens.

I guess we are all curious about the price. Will it be 4,000+ like the 15mm for the rangefinders, or maybe around 2k or so?

I'm in the market for a 18mm Zeiss, so I'll wait until I hear more about the 15mm... Zeiss rumours recently said that it might be a 16mm.
