    Arrow Zeiss announces DSLR lenses for high MPX DSLR's

    Start saving folks this maybe killer.


    After the 50mm f/1.4, 135mm f/2 and a new set of mirroress lenses, Zeiss made another big announcements at Photokina today: they are introducing a new high-end SLR lens product line specially designed for high resolution, full frame DSLR cameras with resolution more than 30MP (Nikon D800, D800E):


    "This is about lenses for full-frame (36x24mm) SLR cameras with manual focusing capability. This family of lenses is geared towards delivering uncompromising image quality for demanding users. The lenses are perfect for high-resolution, full-format digital cameras with more than 30 megapixels such as D800. The combined performance approaches that of medium format systems. If you shoot with the largest aperture, cameras with smaller number of pixels also benefit from much better image contrast."

    The new lenses will come in both Nikon and Canon mounts and are expected to costs around 3,000 EUR. The first set will contain three prime lenses, more are currently in the planning stage.

    Re: Zeiss announces DSLR lenses for high MPX DSLR's

    There certainly are numerous news releases regarding Zeiss lenses..... and I'm liking all of them! Am very curious what the Zenon lenses are all about and if they are included in the above post. The announcement about the 55mm f1.4 seems to be a separate announcement about a new family of lenses. Time will tell but this is very exciting...

    This might be inefficient, seeing how so many of us would love to get our hands on these new Zeiss"s. Maybe just organize a group heist of the ships container as it docks late into the night. Maybe we can code name our Getdpi posse "The Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight" . (Hmm, wasn't that the title to a movie?)

    I'm wondering if these newly designed lenses are less about raising the bar for absolute resolution but instead focusing on improving edge to edge performance on these higher mp cameras?

    Makes you wonder what Zeiss knows about Canon plans?
    (And Sony's A900 update, A99, stays at 24mp.)
