    I wish it was f/2 like the brothers... I understand the size and price considerations though. Using the 500 rule 500/21=23.8 sec shutterspeed to avoid blurring the stars... that's still plenty at f/2.8 this will still make a great milkyway-shooter :D
    I wonder if this and the three voigtlanders are to be included in the rumored 8 new sony lenses or there are 8 more coming from Sony... either way our A7 lens line-up is shaping up pretty good i would say.

    I hope this lens will be as good as the ZE one. I may be wrong, but I susopect that Zeiss went with software corrections, basically they went from a FF ZE lens with 82mm filter to a FF Loxia with 52mm filter... I will wait and see.

    For $1500 I think it underwhelming.

    The new Loxia lens actually has less, more easily corrected, distortion than the ZE version--and that's before any software corrections are applied.
