It's Official - Zeiss Lenses for F-Mount

Following several weeks of "teaser ads," Zeiss has finally made it official - they will be producing high-quality full-frame lenses for the F-Mount. First up is a Planar T* 50mm/f1.4 ZF, followed by a Planar T* 85mm/f1.4 ZF. Although not a surprise to shutterbugs who follow the news closely (the teaser ads were downplayed by unintended releases of information in the form of lens images), everyone is still wondering what these highly-touted lenses might cost. The Zeiss press release simply states "competitive with similar items in the Nikon F-system." The new lenses will be sold through a separate sales organization.
