Zeiss Full Frame Lenses in the Works for Sony NEX E-Mount

The next big thing for Sony E-Mount is full frame – particularly so, given that the Sony VG900 and Sony RX1 have been making big waves as full frame cameras. Of course, the VG900 features is a NEX camera with an E-Mount; however, only Alpha-mount full frame lenses can take advantage of that sensor courtesy of an adapter. And then, there’s the RX1, which has a lens affixed to the camera in a rather compact package for a full frame shooter.

As SonyAlphaRumors points out though, full frame NEX options are coming and Zeiss is planning to deliver three new full frame prime lenses for Sony NEX E-Mount cameras.

While these lenses are purportedly on the road map, we won’t see them for over a year when they arrive in June 2014.
