X 100 or Zeiss 24mm?
Mar 1, 2012

I currently have a Sony NEX 7 and kit lens and was going to buy the Zeiss 24mm f1.8 but at £849 it's quit expensive!

When I went into my local retailer they said it isn't in stock for a couple of weeks, but they challenged what I would use it for.

He said why don't I consider the X100 for casual, street and landscapes. In his opinion the lens is excellent on the X100 and not far behind the Zeiss?

He also said I would get a different "type" of image from the Fujian, colour skin tone etc.

Now I have read all the debates about the + - of the X100, so two questions.

Is this guy trying to sell his last X100 because of the issues?

If I bought the X100 does is make the NEX 7 a little redundant and or is it duplication?

Thanks

Ian
