Like many I imagine I got an email from B&H linking an instant rebate to the 12mm and 32mm Touit lenses in both E and X mount. $200 off per lens but a whopping $800 if you buy the pair. Too bad that I have pretty much switched back to FF with my A7r otherwise I'd go for these in a heartbeat.

And I just bought a like-new Touit 12mm for $750 by itself and I thought it was a great deal . For $119 more I could have added the 32mm Touit to the deal. Oh, well.

Yeah, this is a phenomenal deal, even for Fuji shooters who have competing lenses that are generally as good or better. At full price, the Zeiss lenses don't make a ton of sense for Fuji shooters, but at this price, it's a fantastic deal. If I didn't already have the Fuji 35 and 14, I'd pick up both.

They really are tempting, but the A7 sitting in front of me doesn't seem that interested (even if the Nex-5 on the shelf is).

Mike - thanks for the link!!

I've been waiting for the sale on the 12mm - missed a few on E-bay - now, happy about that!

Anybody want to buy a very lightly used Touit 32/1.8 for $470.00......nice lens BTW

^^ Yes, it doesn't make sense for you to use any on a FF A7/A7r but if you it on the a6000 that can be had for $648.00, they are superb performers and at that price, the whole deal offers a tremendous value. And the resulting images are not too bad either .

I noticed the A6000 body is on sale for $600 (kit for $750) today. That or the X-E1 with 18-55 and extras for $700.

I'm almost tempted to buy an A6000 or X-E1 right now along with these lenses. Must resist...

Buy and sell forum will be flooded with Touit 32mm lenses for $250-350. Imagine the frustration on people that paid $2100 for the combo only one year ago.

Just when I thought I was done thinking about Fuji ...

I suppose I should just get the pair of lenses ... figure out the rest later.
Order placed (on backorder).

Thanks ... I think.

They're very good lenses. They have good color and contrast and pretty good sharpness across the frame. For E-Mount, they're about the best you can get in this range. For Fuji, there are native lenses that are as good, but it will depend on the look you want and the exact effect.

I reviewed both lenses over the past year and found them both excellent. The 32mm f/1.8 is very sharp wide open (and indeed sharper than the Fuji 35/1.4 at wide apertures), however, it doesn't improve all that much stopping down, as a result the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 ends up sharper across the frame at f/4-f/8. The 12mm is sharp across the frame right from f/2.8, and will provide very good images. It's not quite as sharp as the Fuji 14mm, but it's not all that far off. It's wider, which can be great, though in a single wide prime, I actually prefer the 14mm view, as it's still very wide, but easier to use more often.

This deal was almost enough for me to part with my Canon gear for Fuji. A smaller, lighter crop kit would be amazing for summer travel.

here are the reasons:


- a rumoured FUJI X-mount all new 35mm 1.4 is coming [ crop ]

- another fuji X camera in full frame... coming soon

- another FUJI X medium format... almost out.

- 3 or 5 Fuji X full frame lenses... coming

I highly doubt the ILC full frame Fuji any time soon.
