Lens Review
Introduction | ZEISS Touit 1.8/32 Sony E vs competition | ZEISS Touit 2.8/12mm vs competition | Conclusion

ZEISS Touit 2.8/12 Sony E mounted on Sony NEX-7 Versus Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f2.0 mounted on Panasonic GH2


When the second lens in the series, the ultra-wide Distagon 2.8/12 (18mm equivalent), is compared against the faster yet not as wide Olympus M.Zuiko Digtial ED 12mm f/2.0 (24mm equivalent) the ZEISS lens fares quite well. While it’s not as sharp as the Olympus or its 1.8/32 sibling, with such an extreme angle of view it’s not likely to be. What’s more, it has excellent light transmission and very low distortion and vignetting. The only downside is noticeable Chromatic Aberration when paired with the NEX-7.
