Carl Zeiss is showing off their new Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 telephoto lens. This premium manual focus optic uses a floating focus system to maintain high image quality at all distances down to 0.8m. It uses anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, resulting in an apochromatic design. It will be available in mounts for Canon and Nikon SLRs from December 2012, at a retail price of approximately $2000.
