Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar Overview

The Zeiss Touit lenses for Sony NEX and Fuji X are reviewed in depth in Guide to Mirrorless.


Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar

Search this site for coverage of Zeiss Touit.

The Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar is a high performance normal lens for Sony NEX or Fuji X with a field of view equivalent to an 48mm lens on a full frame camera.

Available in Sony NEX or Fuji X mount.

Magician of the moment—

The best of two worlds. Just like a 50 mm lens in 35 mm photography, the Touit 1.8/32 offers the same angle of view as the human eye.

However, optimised for use with APS-C format sensors, it is simultaneously a lens that is so light and compact that it can be taken along simply anywhere and everywhere you go.

Whether you are shooting portraits, landscapes or spontaneous snapshots, you will never cease to be amazed by what a Touit 1.8/32 can tease out of your camera.

It is quite simply the ideal companion for capturing perspectives and color and lighting moods in perfect pictures.

Key features:

  • Almost circular diaphragm with 9 blades, for especially harmonious rendition of highlights outside of the focal plane (bokeh).
  • Lens hood seamlessly integrated into the overall design.
  • Metal bayonet mount guarantees extreme rigidity and rubberized setting rings enable precise manual control when needed.
  • Aspherical lens design ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focusing range as well as sharpness to the periphery of the image.
  • Latest floating element design principles. Optical aberration effects in ZEISS lenses are reduced to a minimum throughout their entire focusing range, achieved by variation of the axial distance between individual lens elements or groups. This adjustment of the lens-to-lens distance is coupled to the distance setting to ensure correct compensation at all times. The mechanical construction of these lenses is extremely complex and they must be assembled with utmost precision.
  • Various, elaborate techniques to reduce unwanted stray light.

Lens specifications

In a break with tradition, MTF charts are not provided with the Zeiss Touit line, unfortunate in my view.
