Carl Zeiss 32mm f/1.8 for NEX

Michael Zhang, PetaPixel:

Carl Zeiss’ legendary glass is coming to Fuji X and Sony E mount cameras. If you have an X series or NEX mirrorless camera, you’ll soon be able to purchase a 12mm f/2.8, a 32mm f/1.8, or a 50mm f/2.8 macro.

The lenses look beautiful, but they are pricey: US$1000 to $1400. One niggle: One of the most important features of a NEX is the big image sensor in a compact body compared to DSLRs. What’s the point of having a compact body when these fancy lenses are so big? Can’t Zeiss and other lens manufacturers make them less bulky?
