Will you be doing a comparison between the New Zeiss Touit Lenses for the Fuji and their own lenses in the near future?
I always subscribe to your sites for this useful information prior to purchasing a lens. For the reasonable cost of your subscription I am ensured that I do not buy a lens that i will not enjoy.
DIGLLOYD Yes, this was part of my intention in buying the entire Fujifilm X kit, which I hope to see recouped by observing new subscribers. The subscription price is a very small fraction of the price of one Touit lens, so this is always my goal to deliver value for prospective purchases.
One has to admit that given extremely aggressive discounting by Fujifilm (and other brands too), the Touit lenses are entering a challenging market. But at some point those Fujifilm discounts will go away and in any case the 12mm Touit is a superb performer and the widest lens available.
