yeah, i saw that on dpreview too :)

so I guess these are third party lenses, or are they official cooperating with Canon

Are the zeiss lenses that much better than canon lenses or are they going to be a 'good cheap alternative' to canon.

it is hard to say they if they are better than  Canon lenses but to my knowledge Zeiss lenses  are one of the top quality lenses you could find in the market (I wouldn't compare them with  third party lenses like Sigma tamron  etc )

Sony has been using zeiss lenses and I guess  it is the lens why  many people go for sony.
zeiss lenses also tend to be very expensive  and the recommended prices for upcoming  EF bayonet  lenses show it clearly k:)
quoted from dpreview:Recommended retail price of both lenses:
Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE
$ 660

Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE
$ 1,170

they are manual i personally prefer that i have the option for AF.
But if they offer a wideangle-lens it would be a good option because Canon sucks regarding wide-angle.

oh silly me  I didn't realize it first   they only offer manual lenses,which  is nothing new as those manual lenses have already  being used on EF bodies with ebay  lens adapters. now I am disappointed:(

Do you think eventually they will manufacture AF lens? They do this for Sony so I guess all they need is Canon cooperation and full specification of EF mount, right?
