    Thanks Magnus W. This Braun looks like another Cosina made camera like the old Yashica FX3 Super 2000 or the Nikon fm 2000.

    This is indeed great news, but are there yet any indications as to cost? I hope Zeiss doesn't price themselves out of the market when the tons of superb, existing Nikon glass can be had rather cheap.

    I would be willing to pay extra for Zeiss glass, say, $400-$500 for the 50/1.4, but beyond that I can't see myself justifying it.

    The pictures on the Zeiss website show a prong mounted on each lens, so I think there would be no problem with vintage Nikons.

    Stephen Gandy said on the CVUG list that the 50/1.4 will retail for $500 in Japan.

    Unfortunately, it also looks like these are all manual focus lenses. Also, lacking is Nikon's D chip. A day late, a dollar short.....

    Funny, they would show these lenses mounted on a Nikon F6. http://www.zeiss.de/C12567A8003B8B6F...3/$File/03.jpg

    Its certainly slightly sub-optimal if they make just AI-S, not AI-P versions of the lens thus restricting them to F6, F100 and FM3A in recent camera body models. Hopefully they will contain the P chip ... It would make them so much more widely useable than just AI-S

    This is a big win for Nikon shooters.. like me ( having bagged my Contax SLRs out of frustration with getting service ! ).

    I think I'll start with a 50/1.4.
