Which Zenith lenses are coming ?

Seems Zenit comes back with three lenses, the Zenith 85mm f/1.2 the Zenith 50mm f/1.2 and the Zenith 50mm f/0.95 lenses. Zenith had some very popular lenses like the Jupiter 135mm f/2.8 is still used in Hungary by some or the Zenitar 16mm fisheye lens which was available in the US as well, and had a good reputation.

New Zenitar 50/0.95

This lens is designed for Sony FE mount cameras. Has many aperture blades, 14 if I remember well, in two different depths. The lens has a 72mm filter thread, the lens construction is 9 elements in 8 groups.

New Zenitar 50/1.2

This lens is designed for Full frame cameras. It will be available for both Canon EF and Nikon F mounts. Perhaps this will be the first lens released sometime this year. Currently it is a massive 1200g lens, Zenith is working on to make it smaller.

New Zenitar 85/1.2

It is also designed for Full frame cameras, with a design of 9 elements in 7 groups, has a 82mm filter thread, and metal mount. It will be available for both Canon EF and Nikon F mounts.

Price and release date is not yet known of these lenses (some projected for 2017), but according to some information the lenses will not be more expensive than 600 USD.
