As a member of the Zeiss headquarters I am in regular communication with told me yesterday, the design of the new 2/25 ZF.2 is in operation. It might be presented officially by the end of the year.
He also gave me details of it's specifications and strong points compared to the former versions and the 21. Unhappily I'm not legalized to publish what I learned. Just that much: waiting pays well!
Interesting. It's consistent with my thought that they would turn it into a more expensive, higher spec-ed lens, that they originally mis-judged what they market wanted from the company. Figure that the lens will probably go for a good $1500-1750. Still, would have preferred a 25/1.4, even at $2500. Will be interesting to see how the design compared to the Sony ZA (especially given the timing), not to mention the performance. All in all, good news for owners of the 25/2.8 ZF as its value should hold firm (half the price of the newer 25/2).
