Zeiss Lenses for Sony NEX and Fuji X-Series Coming Soon

Carl Zeiss unveiled plans at Photokina 2012 to build lenses for the Sony NEX and Fuji X-Series mirrorless cameras.

Zeiss has three prime lenses in development now – a 2.8/12, 1.8/32 and 2.8/50 macro.  What’s more is that the lenses will be AF lenses.  The Fuji X-Series versions will also feature a manual aperture setting.

Pricing is said to be similar to the Zeiss Sonnar 24mm f/1.8 for Sony Alpha cameras, which runs about $1100 USD.  Expected availability on the new Zeiss lenses is in the Spring/Summer of 2013.
