Join us as we take a closer look at the new Zeiss lenses announced at Photokina

Check out our video above as we discover more about the new Zeiss lenses announced last week in Cologne.

With the addition of a fourth manual-focus Loxia lens for Sony E-mount cameras – a compact 85mm f/2.4 – the German company is clearly hoping to appeal to full-frame videographers.

Also on the table are three new Milvus lens releases, announced a short while ago. These take the form of two super-wide angle lenses, the Zeiss Milvus 2.8/15 and Zeiss Milvus 2.8/18 both (f/2.8-f/22), and and telephoto offering, the Zeiss Milvus 2/135 (f/2-22). Aimed at higher-end DSLR users, this brings the Milvus lens family up to 9 different focal lengths. The Milvus lenses all feature a ZF.2 mount and are compatible with their previously released lens gears, letting users ‘De-Click’ and control their lenses’ aperture more freely when in use – eliminating any unwanted changes in brightness when filming and panning.

A release for the new lenses is scheduled for late October of this year and will be €2,699 for the 2.8/15, €2,299 for the 2.8/18 and €2,199 for the 2/135.
