Zeiss: “We would like to do MFT lenses but we have limited resources”

Zeiss managers told at BestMirrorlessCameraReviews that there are lots of things you’d like to do, but you have limited resources and power so you need to concentrate on one thing:

At the moment, the MFT system is quite valued, but as for the willingness to spend big money on lenses, to see this as an investment as you do on a SLR, we are not 100% sure it is there. On a full frame SLR system, the lens is really the investment part. The camera is what you change, and people are used to this. In the case of less-than full frame systems, we still don’t understand.

No MFT lenses for now :(
