I tried to have a conversation, to ask what camera he used
All he said was "a Sony" without explanation.

Right after my question, the man stopped taking pictures, the camera disappeared in a camera bag and away was the man.

So it is confirmed then.

But what puzzles me is, did Zeiss just use "Zeiss" naming on their product just recently? Or might this Tessar E were already come into production before that (or even the Touit for that matter?)
Or is this just to differentiate that this is Carl Zeiss product made by Sony. While the real Carl Zeiss product would be labeled just Zeiss.

I would say the latter. Sony has a licence to use the brand name "Carl Zeiss", not the brand name "Zeiss" as such.

Yepp, "Carl Zeiss" will become "ZEISS" -> see Zeiss blog: From “Carl Zeiss” to “ZEISS” – a brief story about our brand communication

What a question here at Dyxum.

By the way, the CZ has been rumored for some time, and Gustav has already posted a very short message here.

What a pity the Dyxum Lens database doesn't include Nex lenses . "The Duke" (of Dutch) can't post specs or a review there .

May I say "welcome to Dyxum"

Sony don't make Zeiss products – not in the sense you mean. The optical train and design is by Zeiss and the rest of the lens is Sony: AF mech, housing etc.. That's why the ZA lenses have two serial numbers – a Zeiss one on the bezel and a Sony one near the mounting bayonet. I thought this was well known?

No, I don't. So now I know that. I guess the Sony built will still have Carl Zeiss labeling on it..
