Zeiss shows off its ZX1 full frame concept camera at CP+ 2019

Zeiss ZX1

The appearance of the Zeiss ZX concept camera first announced at Photokina 2018 seems to have taken a step closer following hands-on demonstrations of a pre-production camera at CP+ 2019. The unit appeared to be a working prototype, but Zeiss has still not given any details about when it will be available and how much it will cost.

Zeiss will need to get a move on, or it risks being upstaged and outgunned by the rumored new Leica Q2.
