Last week we reported that “Zeiss’s target is to have 5 Loxia and 5 Batis by end 2016“. That means Zeiss will announce two more batis lenses and two more loxia lenses by the end of 2016. Today according to the rumor coming out of SonyAlphaRumors, Zeiss will release one new Batis telephoto prime lens by the end of this year. The detailed specs and announcement date of this new lens are still unknown, but it is rumored to be a 135mm lens. The aperture of this Batis lens is expected to be f/1.8 or f/2.8. What do you think about this new Batis lens.
In addition, Zeiss is planning to update the current 135 f/1.8 ZA A-mount lens soon. The announcement date of this updated 135mm A-mount lens is expected to be around Photokina 2016 in September.
