    Will we ever see leaf shutter lenses for the A7R II?

    With the A7R II being similar in quality to "some" Medium Format digital, is there any chance of Zeiss ever releasing a set of leaf shutter lenses for the Sony A7 series?

    They have the technical know ho to do so right? Or would this eat into RX1/RX2 sales?

    For me, the RX1/RX2 is a no go for incorporating leaf shutter flash work as the focal length is too restricted.. If they made a series of conversion lenses for the RX2 that enabled a wider FOV and a longer FOV (24mm/28mm, 35mm, 50mm) then I would be in fa shure!

    With EFCS and electronic shutter features, this is redundant. You might ask about higher sync speeds- you use system flashes with HSS feature.

    I do not see any chance of leaf shutter happening.

    I agree with Vivek. There's a very limited market for leaf shutter lenses but I'd welcome them if they made them.

    being a bit of a luddite, I'm not sure what the use/value of the EFC shutter is, or even what it is compared to the standard electronic shutter in the camera

    Thanks for the responses...

    Will just have to wait for the RX2 and hope that Sony come out a wide and tele converter to make it a complete kit for flash work..

    You could use large format lenses with leaf shutter on a Cambo Actus.
