Zeiss ZK Coming Back?

Sadly not according to Zeiss in Oberkochen:


"Thanks for your inquiry.
Due to the very low request, we had to discontinue ZK type lenses in 2011. Today, they can only be found on the second hand market anymore.
We do not plan to offer ZK type lenses within the next future.

With best regards

Bertram Hönlinger

Going to try to make it down to Oberkochen and petition again, but it didn't work last time...


CAN YOU IMAGINE A PIXEL SHIFTED OTUS?

It's not bait if we make it happen.

And there is almost no ff competition by Pentax at the moment to current Zeiss glass. That should be on the positive side. Zeiss does not want to make glass for Pentax, sometimes I think that even Pentax does not want to make new glass for Pentax

Lack of news is not news.
