Carl Zeiss mirrorless system lenses at photokina
Another highlight will be the presentation of a design study, with which Carl Zeiss will offer a sneak preview of a new family of autofocus lenses for mirrorless system cameras (CSC) that will most likely be available in mid-2013. Due to their performance and high speed, these new lenses will be ideal for deliberate photo composition, making them perfect for more sophisticated photographers as well. Carl Zeiss plans to initially offer fixed focal lengths in the wide angle and standard range as well as a macro. „The trend toward mirrorless system cameras has accelerated since 2010 and we notice growing interest for them among ambitious photographers. We are convinced that as a result of the new and very high-quality cameras and lenses that are coming onto the scene, this market will become even more important. We see lots of potential, which is why we will offer more products for this target group in the future,” said Dr. Winfried Scherle, Senior Vice President of the Camera Lens Division of Carl Zeiss AG.

Thank you David
I read the provided link but there was no indication of which mirrorless camera mounts they would be manufacturing for. I feel certain that there will be more E-Mount (NEX) lenses as a result of their partnering with Sony. But if they don't also build glass for the Micro Four Thirds mount, they are going to miss out on a lot of future business. Photokina 2012 is only a week off, maybe we will find out then. Photokina is going to be really interesting this year, things have been way too quiet.
