Interesting, but very few details. It's not even on the Zeiss website yet.

That announcement is bogus.

Actually it's not. I found it on the Zeiss site just now.

Look under press releases. Still no real detail though.

Strange. I said bogus because it's not the long-awaited optical redesign. Apparently Zeiss has decided to reissue the original design as well.

Their announcement doesn't give any details other than ZF.2. So we'll have to wait for any further details.

"Now this popular and time-tested wide-angle lens is also available in a ZF.2 version"

Ergo, same optics.

I do not see that they have to be the same design, Zeiss can release a lens with minor changes and still call it the same. similarly as Leica changes coatings over time for the same model.
Anyway, it remains to be seen. Judging from the price we may not expect a major redesign or anything rivaling Distagon 21mm.

Any chance of it being an f2 lens?

Well, if that is the case, then I presume this is the same design - as you stated earlier. Your surprise at the news indicates that there is another one to be expected? depends of course on what is the source of your information

Do you know BTW if the compact 25mm prime Zeiss released earlier is the same design as the ZF 25/2.8?

I think they probably listened to Lotus

Unlikely. Lotus already has the lens, and Zeiss has little hope of selling him another one

I don't trust anything I read in a Zeiss press release, because it's so often inaccurate or just silly. However, I would have thought they would at least mention a floating element design if the lens had one (after the 35 mm f/2 fiasco). So it seems the new lens doesn't.

Toothwalker's comments are intriguing.

I still have a soft spot for the old ZF 25 mm, with its phenomenal flare resistance and sharp centre even at full aperture.

Another thought: no ZE version announced? Something's definitely up.

Diglloyd is confirming that it's the same optics as the ZF version, and also that there will be no ZE version.

At what point do I get to start hollering "$hit!!" and flopping on the floor?

In that case I can only congratulate myself with buying the ZF version before its price shoots up again. Right now it is little above the old contax 25mm.
