Zeiss will announce two new lenses, Loxia 21mm f/2.8 for Sony FE-mount mirrorless cameras and Otus 28mm f/1.4 for Canon EF / Nikon F DSLRs, sometime by the end of next week.

One of the most iconic lens manufacturers in the world, Zeiss, is on the verge of introducing a couple of wide-angle lenses. The products will be parts of different series and they have been rumored multiple times in the past.

Without much further ado, the sought-after optics are the Loxia 21mm f/2.8 and Otus 28mm f/1.4. The former will be designed for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras, while the latter will be aimed at full-frame DSLRs from Canon and Nikon. However, both are coming next week during the same product launch event.

Zeiss Loxia 35mm and 50mm lenses will be joined by a 21mm version in mid-October.

While there are no news about Batis, things are different when it comes to the Loxia and Otus ones. A couple of wide-angle primes are on their way and they will become official during next week.

This means that they will be revealed somewhere between October 12 and 16. On a previous basis, we have learned that the Otus 28mm f/1.4 would become official in October 2015, while the Loxia 21mm f/2.8 would be introduced later this year.

Well, they are both coming in mid-October and photographers using mirrorless or DSLR cameras can rejoice the possibility of getting their hands on new Zeiss gear in the near future.

A couple of wide-angle primes for indoor and landscape shooting in low-light conditions

The Zeiss Loxia 21mm f/2.8 lens will cover full-frame sensors, so it will be compatible with Sony FE-mount cameras. However, users will also be able to mount it onto E-mount cameras and it will offer a 35mm focal length equivalent of approximately 36mm.

Its maximum aperture is bright enough, meaning that it will be a good choice for indoor and landscape shooting in low-light conditions.

The Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 lens will be a high-end product for Canon EF and Nikon F photographers. Just like the 55mm and 85mm Otus-series optics, this model will be very expensive, therefore we can expect it to retail for around $4,000.

Both the upcoming Loxia and Otus wide-angle primes will be manual focus products, just like their siblings. Anyway, we invite you to remain close to our website for the official announcement next week!
