Some of you may know that Schneider-Kreuznach recently announced the development of a Super Angulon 14mm f/2 autofocus lens for Micro 4/3. For those who aren't familiar with Schneider-Kreuznach, they are a nearly 100-year-old German company known for many innovative lens designs. While they have partnered with Samsung to allow Schneider-branded lenses on Samsung digital cameras, their new mirrorless lenses appear to be the "real deal", designed and manufactured by Schneider in Germany with a price tag to match. According to the German site Photoscala (Google translation), Schneider is considering the development of a 30/1.4 and 60/2.4 macro for Micro 4/3. However, these focal lengths correspond to traditional focal length equivalents for APS-C (close to 50mm and 90mm) rather than Micro 4/3 (60mm and 120mm), suggesting the possibility that they are being designed for APS-C and adapted for use on Micro 4/3. If the same holds true for the 14mm Super Angulon, then NEX users may be in for a very high performance, fast, 21mm equivalent lens. Sony already has the relationship with Zeiss, but the Schneider lenses seem to occupy a different level in terms of pricing. We can only hope that if Schneider makes lenses for Sony NEX, they will offer a level of performance commensurate with their price. Regardless, more lens choices for the Sony E mount can only be a good thing.
