Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar Lens Rumored to be Announced in 2016

In September 2015 Zeiss announced a completely new “Milvus” lens line for Canon EF-mount and Nikon F-mount DSLR cameras. And now it is said that Zeiss will add a new 135mm telephoto prime lens to their Milvus lineup.

The Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar Lens is rumored to be announced in 2016, as early as May. The older Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar lens is currently $400 off.

Milvus lenses are manual focus only and they are the company’s answer to towards high-resolution sensors in modern cameras which require higher image quality examples like the Canon EOS 5DS R and Sony A7RII models.

The current Zeiss MILVUS lens lineup consists of 6 new lenses. And here are the detailed info and store links at B&H Photo:

    Are they eventually replacing the Classic line? Seems that way. Many companies start out with 3 lines in 3 different price ranges such as the BMW 3, 5 and 7 Series or the Mercedes C class, E class and S class.
    It would be nice if they kept the Classic series, for a more affordable alternative, although the 18 mm needs to be updated asap, it looks like a lens from the 1960′s. I snapped up the 135 f/2 apo sonnar 4 months ago, when it was on sale. The phoblographer calls it the best portrait lens he’s ever used. Someone said it’s basically an Otus lens released before the creation of the Otus line.
