Carl Zeiss has announced two Canon-friendly lenses that don’t require a special adapter to make them fit.
The Planar T 1.4/50 ZE ($660) and 1.4/85 ZE ($1,770) are 100% physically and electronically compatible with Canon’s EF mount and should be available in a few months and additional models expected to follow.
Apparently Canon will be raising their prices for dealers effective May 1st on lenses and flashes.
Sure, that’s the dealer price, but the dealers will most likely be adjusting their consumer price to make up the difference so keep this in mind if you’re in the market for a new Canon lens or flash.
The increase will apparently not be hitting DSLRs or kits.
