    IMHO, Sony should dump them and take Cosina as their partners.

    (They can always buy a bunch of blue tags anytime if they so desire)

    It looks like Zeiss really underestimated the success of the Sony A7 cameras. But then again, is it Zeiss or Cosina making them? I'm still old school and have a hard time believing that AF lenses can be as good as manual focus lenses especially in the long term. But I guess that depends on how much you shoot and travel with them.
