Compared to Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 (Fujifilm X-E1, Cabin Table)

Shot on the 16-megapixel Fujifilm X-E1.

It turns out that the Fujifilm X-E1 exhibits a focus creep bug. The Zeiss Touit results shown here have been degraded in quality as a result. The bug is not particular to Touit lenses, but for whatever reason the Fujinons tend to avoid it more often). The Fujinon 35/1.4 here is likely also affected, just less-so. It is impossible to make such a series properly with Fujifilm X cameras.

Focal length differences, comparing the two

A focal length of 32mm is a significantly wider field of view than 35mm, easily seen in comparing the entire frame images included here: in full frame terms it is 49mm vs 53mm. And measurement of images from the Fujifilm X-E1 shows a difference of 10.4% linearly, so it is more like 49mm vs 54mm (noting well that the X-E1 corrects distortion and this affects field of view slightly).
