Yeah, Hasselblad stopped doing Sony overhauls (like the 'Stellar'; the way Leica overhauls Panasonics and sells 'em as D- or V-LUX). Guess Zeiss is the lucky one to have the next jab at it.

Shouldn't carry the premium pricetag of either Hassy or Leica and hopefully won't just be a rebranded Sony RX but actual technical upgrade. Contax Zeiss are still some of my favorite film camera/lens combos of all time.

I'm still trying to figure out what that lame teaser image shows. Any ideas?

Its the corner of the camera with the shutter button. 

Well that'd be a strange place for a shutter button. Probably I'm wrong.

The Chinese translation supposedly says its going to fill a void in the photo market. A left handed camera would certainly do just that.

I hope if it is more expensive than the already very expensive Sony RX1 II, then it is actually BETTER and not just a cash grab.

Or high-value added... as a marketing department would say!

It should have a better Zeiss optic if so...as the RX1 lens has been around a long while now... It's a great lens, but the AF mechanism is clunky as is the manual focus ring.

I love the RX1 and RX1R II though... Not perfect, but two of my all-time favourite stills cameras and the most fun to use Sony.

Oh and 4K would be nice.

Otherwise, I will just stick to my Sony!

Will be interesting to see what job Zeiss do on the ergonomics. German companies tend to be very minimalist, which is a good thing. Leica.

Zeiss lenses have tended to be superb ergonomically and build quality wise as well...

Innovative touches like the OLED panels on the Batis range are a good sign they know what they're doing in 2018.

Bastards, they fooled me! That looks like the shutter. They now say "no brand is safe in the mirrorless jungle." M43 is the only open source mirrorless mount. But Batis lenses are all E-mount so far. Let the speculation begin...

I am surprised nobody has yet tried something wild an innovative like a camera grip which you can screw onto either side of the camera body, so you can choose which side depending on what is more comfortable for you.
