The by in large spot-on folks at Sony Alpha Rumors have just received word from many trusted and proven sources that state Zeiss and Sony are currently working on a collaborative effort to introduce the first batch of full-frame E-mount lenses by June of 2014.
While the report, which has received the rumor-site’s highest probability of validity, is still in its infancy and could change as more information is leaked, it does point to Sony’s presumable plans to finally launch a full-frame interchangeable lens NEX model in the foreseeable future – a decision that only seems fitting given the successful release of the world’s first full-frame digital compact, the Sony RX1.
Although no focal lengths or specification details were given as of yet in regards to the above-mentioned lenses, it has been stated that three Zeiss primes are currently in development and are being tested on working prototyped camera bodies.
As with all rumors, its important to take these reports with a grain of salt. With that being said, it’s no secret that a full-frame NEX model could (and should) be within the realms of Sony’s development plans and a trio of accompanying Zeiss glass wouldn’t hurt those prospects either.
More to come…
