Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar: Bokeh (Glassware)

In the review of the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar is an detailed evaluation of bokeh with the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar on the Sony NEX-7.

Five examples are shown, each with retina-grade images and crops, along with commentary. Much more is coming on both the Touit 32mm f/1.8 and 12mm f/2.8.

These examples leave little doubt as to the professional grade image rendition now available to those looking to shoot a smaller camera system. In my estimation, the two new Zeiss Touit lenses make the Sony NEX and Fuji X platforms much more attractive. Now having an extensive set of field images, I am comfortable saying that these two lenses would be my first choices on either Sony NEX and Fuji X; if anything they outperform comparable Zeiss lenses on full-frame DSLRs (Zeiss ZF.2/ZE 50/1.4 Planar and 18/3.5 Distagon). Which is what one would hope for in a modern design for a smaller sensor size.

The Touit lenses are high grade and ready for a pro-grade NEX or Fuji X platform. But as it stands, the camera body “gotchas” with NEX-7 are troublesome, as I found out in NYC, and this means more than irritation, it meant unexpected failures. Yet all it would take is some mild effort in firmware to fix at least some of them ( the NEX-6 fixes a few issues, but I wanted 24 megapixels, not 16). It is my uneasy feeling that both Sony nor Fuji have only a dim inkling of the needs of real photographers (ergonomics, elimination of arbitrary behavioral quirks, kitchen sink designs, hideously arranged menus systems). Let us hope that both vendors start taking serious input from photographers looking for reliable tools free of toylike design warts.
