    New Batii & Loxias

    It seems we will get more Zeiss goodies this year:

    Zeiss to Release 2 More Batis and 2 More Loxia Lenses in 2016, Report

    I am hoping for a 15mm f/2.8 Loxia for astro work...

    I would welcome a shift lens.. just shift to keep it small, something between 21 and 24mm.

    No chance. Think about the loxia case, they released a few months ago. It has four spares. first for the 21, second for the 35 and third with the size of the 50. The fourth is still missing and would be something higher than 50 to complete the row. And if they worked on five loxias, they would have made a box for five lenses.

    from briansmith.com:


    Or if I'm wrong with the row, a 15/2.8 would be too big for the small spare.

    Very technical point: should the plural be Loxiae?

    I also think that a revival of the 15mm focal length in the loxia family is possible.

    alternatively i would welcome a loxia 100mm F2
