Photokina is two short weeks away, and the product leaks are starting to come fast and furious. First up, Zeiss with three new lenses for its Milvus line: a 15mm f/2.8, an 18mm f/2.8, and a 135mm f/2.
The Milvus line of Canon and Nikon lenses—optimized for high-resolution DSLRs—launched a year ago this month, but it hasn’t really received any love since. To this day, the line consists of six lenses: a 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, 50mm f/2, and 100mm f/2. But that’s about to change.
Three new lenses are being added to the Milvus line, and Canon Watch has secured leaked product photos of all three! Check them out below.

No specifications have been leaked for the new lenses, but we’re expecting the quality will be on-par with the current Milvus offerings.
But this leak does beg a question: is this lens line—soon-to-be, presumably, 9 prime lenses strong—becoming a bit overcrowded? Do photographers really need three different lenses to cover the range between 15mm and 21mm? We’ll let you answer that.
