New Zeiss X-mount lenses to be announced soon?

While we are still waiting to get some news about the future X cameras we may soon get new X-mount lenses! Not from Fuji…from Zeiss! Some sources confirmed that Zeiss will announce three new X-mount primes in early April. Those are the 12mm f/2.8, 32mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/2.8. All priced at around 1.000 Euro and all with electronic Aperture and Autofocus control.

Two of the lenses may a bit too close to current Fuji offerings. The 12mm f/2.8 Zeiss will be a tiny bit wider but also more expensive than our Fuji 14mm f/2.8 (Price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay). And the 32mm f/1.8 will be slower and more expensive than the already very good Fuji 35mm f/1.4 (Price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay). At the end the 50mm f/2.8 is likely the most unique lens within the X range.

Now it’s up to you….

Which equivalent focal length would you prefer?

Rumor: New Fuji Compact Cameras Expected For CP+

Quick post to report what Digicame-info (translated) posted about Fuji cameras expected to be announced at CP+ (Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2013).

Fujifilm
– FinePix F900EXR
– FinePix F820EXR
– FinePix Z2000EXR
– Compact abroad previously announced (such HS50EXR, SL1000)

This is probably a sort of leaked list of cams, does not mean there will not be other cams that get announced.
