Zeiss Announces Two New Lenses for Nikon F Mount

Article Summary:

Zeiss today announced two new lenses designed to be fully compatible with Nikon F mount cameras.  The 50mm f1.4 and the 85mm f1.4 will be available starting Spring 2006.  Digital SLR’s with their extremely high resolution sensors have placed quite a demand upon lenses and lens design and manufacture, and apparently Zeiss plans to meet this demand.  The company also announced a universal mount lens variant which when used with an adapter will be compatible with Canon and other lens mounts, however these lenses will likely not support autofocus and camera-based aperture control.
