Some big news is coming down the pipe for Sony A7 shooters. In a new rumor posted today, it was revealed that Zeiss will be announcing a new line of lenses, called “Loxia,” specifically for Sony Full Frame E-Mount cameras.
According to the rumor, posted over on Sony Alpha Rumors, the new line of lenses will be native full frame e-mount lenses, and will be 100% Zeiss. They will not be Zeiss branded lenses, like others in the Sony lineup. They will be designed and manufactured by Zeiss themselves. This also means the price will be that of “normal” Zeiss glass, so start saving your pennies.
Details also include that the lenses will have physical aperture rings, will be manual focus (not surprising given the manufacturer), and will be primes. They will also feature some sort of high quality, but small and compact design. The rumor states that we should expect to see these released over the next 12 months.
Overall, this is great news for A7 series owners! You are getting more native e-mount lenses!
