After weeks of specualtion, leaks, and countless delays, Carl Zeiss made it official. Zeiss Lenses for Nikon F Mount are coming! Not that I could ever afford one, but it’s knee-snapping monumental news all in the same.

We’ll be seeing the first Zeiss lenses soon. With the Planar T* 50 mm F1.4 ZF and the Planar T* 85 mm F1.4 ZF slated for Spring 2006. From there it gets a little vage however. Several more have been promised, but in the general sometime in 2006 manner.

There’s a handy discussion here. It’s a wealth of information worth checking out.

Now if only they’d get to work on showing Canon some love…
