New Zeiss lens teaser #enterZEISS

Zeiss lens teaser
Zeiss has a new teaser on their Facebook page for three new lenses. At least one of them looks like a DSLR lens - maybe this will be the previously rumored Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar. The official announcement will be next week. Stay tuned for more details.

Last year Zeiss discontinued their DSLR lenses and replace them with the new Milvus line.

Update - false alarm, Zeiss posted this on Facebook:

We're sorry but #enterZEISS is not about new lenses. It will be great nonetheless. So please stay tuned for next week!
