    GOOD NEWS for all 35mm PENTAX-SLR users!

    Brand new NEWS for all 35mm PENTAX SLR users!

    CARL ZEISS will introduce a new series of lenses, similar to the row of NIKON ZF-series, for all PENTAX (PK-bajonet) SLR's!

    Cheers

    You can not see me right now, but I am actually jumping up and down from pure excitement.

    Really!

    Do you perchance have a source for this excellent news?

    There was an M42 version of the Planar T* 1.4/50 ZS that came out about the same time as the Nikon lenses, but it wasn't well advertised, and now I can't find it anymore on Zeiss's website, but you can find some links about it via Google, mostly japanese sites. I think it was a Cosina-manufactured lens.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    There you go: https://photo-shop.zeiss.com/Products/1405-175

    It's not even visible from their main product pages, you have to go through the online store.

    The ZS line. The 50/1.4 Planar is already available, the other ZF lenses should follow.

    Wait, the PMA is very soon, and I guess, there you will see the official introduction information!

    What is good news in it? I think that pentax lenses (manual focus) are nothing behind Zeiss. Even 1.4/85 manual lens is for head and shoulder ahead of Zeiss concerning photo-qualities (e.g. bokeh).

    Well, the Pentax 24 and 20 are no great shakes, good solid lenses but nothing special, a couple of Distagons in that range would likely be welcomed. The 15/3.5 is a Zeiss design (Also shared with the Leica Elmar-R 15/3.5). From 28mm and longer the Pentax lenses are world-class. In some cases (Notably the A* 85/1.4) the Pentax lenses blow the Zeiss versions out of the water.
