One question for Sony users: are current Zeiss lenses already FF capable?

The 16-80 isn't. I think all the others are.


If you look through the Sony product page, any that say 'optimised for APS-C size sensor' are made for crop sensors. I think Canon and Nikon FF cameras have an option to use crop lenses, so we might need to wait and see if Sony do this.
The 16-80 and 16-105 are optimised for APS-C size sensor. But all those Minolta lenses were made for 35mm cameras, that will bump the price of G lenses up even more !!
So remember, a lot of Sony users are using lenses built for FF cameras on crop sensors ones, how many of us really notice a problem ? I don't.
Maybe once Cameralabs have an a900 Gordon could run some tests with say the 16-80, just to see how well it works.

The full frame compatible ZA (Zeiss Alpha) lenses are: 24-70mm F2.8 SSM, 85mm F1.4 and 135mm F1.8. There seem to be more coming up, such as the 80-400mm, replacement of the 35mm F1.4 G (rumours go round the web that Zeiss will make a good one) and a 50mm F1.4. Also, SSM updated versions of the 16-80mm, 85mm and 135mm might be introduced, if you believe the speculations...

Bjorn, seems like you are quite into Sony. It's a good idea to turn professional. You will have plenty of time after getting into college. I think being a part-time photographer is better than working in McDonald's etc. Learning to play guitar is however a better way to impress girls but it's harder to get paid.

I definitely won't start learning to play the guitar (my musical talent is close to 0). I currently work a bookstore, which is a great job, very relaxed, not much pressure and nice colleagues. However, part time professional work while I'm studying at university would be great! I'd better start saving for some higher-end lenses, and studio equipment. :D
