Carl Zeiss officially confirmed the release of new video lenses in 2012. But this might also be interesting to us, still shooters
In the FDTimes video journal, Zeiss confirmed we will see a lens wider than 18mm (I guess it will be the rumoured 16mm) and another, longer than 100mm, lens. Sure, these lenses will be CP2 video lenses, but CP2 are just reworked ZE/ZF2 lenses, aren't they?
What's even more interesting is that Zeiss announced a new line of "compact zooms that fit the small HDSLR" and which "will cover full still format 24x36 mm". There is a picture of the first video tele-zoom to be announced in the journal and on zeissrumors.com, but they removed the focal length and aperture. Still, you can see in FDT that it's fairly compact: "length: approx. 250 mm diameter: approx. 95 mm" (compact compared to the CP2 line of course).
So, anybody here thinks Zeiss would release new 24x36 lenses for dslr video but not for photography? I don't, I think we will see new ZE/ZF2 zooms next year
