Photokina 2010 - Zeiss #1

A gentleman named R.Wagner talked to a Zeiss rep. at Photokina and got this reply:

"Build the Compact-Primes spring for MFT. (As far as on "toys") Even the large video to zoom in on demand MFT
be rebuilt."

I am not too sure what it is supposed to mean. Do you know?

Thanks for writing us


Update: Here is another translation -
"[Zeiss will] manufacture the Compact Primes in µ4/3 mount from Spring [2011]. (As far as "toys" are concerned) the big video-zoom also should be converted on request in µ4/3 mount."


Now I think I understand what they are going after. It looks like the LightWeightZoom LWZ.2 could be available in µ4/3 mount too. Let's wait and see.


Also, Sonyalpharumors posted a 2011 E mount lens lineup, it will contain a Zeiss wideangle lens that is based on the current ZM lineup. 
Here is the mockup of the lens (black on the right)
I don't know how the mockup represents the actual product, but looking at the size and the curvature of the front element, it doesn't quite resemble the wideangle ZM lenses. Let's wait and see.

  1. Tentatively better translation:
