If this isn't the proper thread please direct me.

My question is why do you think that Zeiss hasn't produced an auto lens, to fit a Nikon or any camera surely they have the expertise. I realize that they are a smaller company then Nikon but, you would think technology should demand an auto!!! :confused:

With the answer below then why not for Nikon as they produce a mount to fit Nikon's???
Thank you Daniel for your quick response.

Licensing issue?

May be they have to pay a fee to Nikon to get the AF APIs and they are not ready to?

I heard that they have to re-engineer the AF stuff, and they decided that they will offer only products based on "official" information. But I guess that they will protect their collaboration with Sony (AF and Zeiss? Get a Sony DSLR!).

Nethertheless, I am VERY HAPPY with my MF Zeiss lenses. It's simply a pleasure.
