Carl Zeiss announced the Distagon T* 18mm f/3.5 ZE lens for Canon DSLRs (EF-mount) today. Zeiss already produces an 18mm f/3.5 Distagon T* lens for Nikon F-mount and Pentax K-mount cameras. Canon users should be pleased that Zeiss is continuing its comitment to the EF-mount.
The new ZE lens should be available Fall 2009 at an initial price of EUR 1049.00. No official word on US prices yet; however, if it matches up with the existing Nikon and Pentax mounts, expect it to be around $1250 in the US. Check availability on Amazon.com.
