Many of the Sony A mount lenses are rebadged, not the newer lenses. You can tell by simply how they look. The 35 1.4, 135 2.8, older 50mm 1.4, for examples, have almost an identical barrel to the older Minolta version. They were simply carried over because the mount is the same. The Zeiss lenses are all new designs I believe, and all of the E mount stuff is new.
