Zeiss va lancer de nouvelles optiques AF en monture Sony E pour les Nex et en monture X pour les Fuji X Pro 1 et X-E1:
"We have observed this market very carefully. Initially, many considered it a “cheap system camera segment” with slightly more sophistication than the market for compact cameras. That was not in line with our idea of quality. However, when growing numbers of camera manufacturers began to offer high quality cameras, Carl Zeiss’ interest in this market increased. Since the introduction of Sony’s NEX-7 and Fujifilm’s X-Pro 1, it became obvious that CSC cameras required quality lenses. So we decided that the time was ripe to bring such lenses to the market."
Zeiss privilégie donc les montures à capteur APS-C, délaissant ainsi le système micro 4/3 (MFT). Trois optiques fixes sont déjà en développement: un 12 mm f/2.8, un 32 mm f/1.8 et un 50 macro f/2.8.
