Fans of landscape photography no doubt find the use of wide-angled lenses extremely useful, although granted they do have uses outside of photographing landscapes. In any case, it seems that renowned glass maker, Carl Zeiss, has recently started to tease us with photos and an announcement of an upcoming super wide-angled lens on their blog. For those unfamiliar with Carl Zeiss, they are the company who have supplied handset manufacturers like Nokia with camera lenses, along with some of Sony’s compact digital cameras and their series of Alpha DSLR and NEX cameras. The company has yet to reveal the details, but have announced that the lens will be available come May 2012 and will be available for a variety of mounts, and judging by how much Carl Zeiss lenses have cost in the past, we don’t expect this new super wide-angle lens to be any different.
