Weekly News Roundup #3

It's that time again. Start your Monday with a bit of light reading featuring some news, tips, social media, and buying advice from TheCineLens.com. On to the news!
1) Lens flare: How did we get here?
https://youtu.be/_IesAvesFUo Vox.com shared a clever video on the history of lens flare and why it's gone from a nuisance to a coveted characteristic. Check it out above.
2) Zeiss 135mm f/2.0, Next stop: Milvus town!
milvus135 Photorumors.com posted an article that isn't much of a stretch - claiming that the Zeiss Classic 135mm ZF.2 is the next in line to be admitted to the Milvus line. I say it's not a stretch because unlike the 1.4/50 and 1.4/85 that were in dire need of updating, the Classic 135mm ZF.2 is still a state-of-the-art optical design that requires absolutely no revising. In fact, if you ask me, thanks to it's apochromatic design, the Classic ZF.2 135mm belongs in the Otus family. It's a superb lens and one of my personal favorites. Zeiss will slowly be phasing out the Classic line in favor of their updated Milvus moniker. Which lenses are due to receive a design update are still a mystery.
