Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

I suspect the idea for Zeiss to make these lenses began with filling a needed gap for great glass with Sony NEX bodies and they decided to go with Fuji as well. That would explain the close overlap as they are thinking along the same lines as Fuji. Except that Zeiss already has a 24mm f/1.8 gem for the NEX, something Fuji is offering at the end of their roadmap and Zeiss at the beginning - possibly to spur sales of the X100 body.

I always wanted a Zeiss but still a bit out of my range. Would gladly sell my Nikon 10-24 for a Zeiss 12mm but the difference will likely still be astronomical.
