They're big! Very big for a mirrorless lens. The Fuji 14mm, while not huge by any means, is slightly larger than many other wide angle lenses for mirrorless (see the tiny Olympus 12/2 and 9-18 zoom). It's a good compromise size for a wider view with a smaller footprint, but it's not 'tiny.'
The Zeiss 12mm f/2.8 is quite a bit longer and much wider, though similar in weight. (both are light).
The 32/1.8 is the same diameter, but again, longer than the Fuji 35mm f/1.4, which is still 2/3 stop faster. The Zeiss is also heavier.
I'm sure they'll be good lenses, but why so big? (note that I've removed measurements in this edit, since their diagrams on the pages show different measurements than those listed in the brochure, so I don't know what the actual sizes are)
Also...what's with the 'touit' name? From everything we've seen, the 12/2.8 is a Distagon design and the 32/1.8 is a Planar design, so why give them new names? Zeiss has always used the standard names based on lens design, so why change if the design is the same, and make all 'mirrorless' lenses 'Touit' now? It does seem the pictures on the site show that "Distagon" and "Planar" are still on the lens ring, but they're also Touit lenses as well, which is just bizarre.
