    Zeiss has new 28mm for Canon in the line-up

    Zeiss keeps adding lenses for the Canon EOS mount to their line-up. This past week they added the Distagon 2/28mm ZE at $1080.

    This brings the total in the Canon mount to five lenses including the Distagon 3,5/18mm and 2,8/21mm added last week.

    The lenses should be in stock in November.

    I haven't been following the news about Zeiss lenses for the EOS lens mount. Do these lenses have full compatibility and autofocus function?

    They have full compatibility except for autofocus. If you can live without it, they look very nice indeed - mainly metal.

    They should have focus confirmation, though, if your camera body does that.

    I've been using the Zeiss 35/2 Distagon in M42 screw mount (ZS mount), and I've been very pleased with it. You can get an M42 mount that's chipped for EOS from a few of the Hong Kong dealers that supports focus confirmation. I decided to get it in M42 mount instead of waiting for the EF mount version, so I could use it on my FD and EOS bodies.

    I wonder if the new Zeiss lenses are affecting Canon's sales of its premium-priced "L" glass.

    I doubt it. A lot of Canon shooters are loyal to the brand and can't understand why anyone would give up autofocus, particularly given the price of the lenses. Zeiss optics for Canon would seem to be a real niche product.

    Yes, I sort of got the sense that Canon and Nikon shooters were sort of fanatical about their loyalty.
