I held out as long as I coiuld but got the 14 mm last month.  Given its stellar reviews and its at the time apparently cheaper (now even a greater spread as the actual prices are out) price, I didn't/couldn't wait for nor justify the Zeiss 12mm.

Seems to me they could have adjusted their release dates so they had something that wasn't covered less expensively and very well by Fuji.  Say release the 23 mm first.

BTW, I couldn't be happier with the 14 mm.

X100; WCL-100
XPro1; 60mm Macro, 35mm f1.4
XE1; 18-55 Zoom, Samyang 8 mm

They needed to put them out for the NEX system. Right now thats a bigger chunk of change for them. NEX already has the 24mm, soooo the profit for them was to release the 32 and 12mm(especially the 12mm for NEX).

The profit maker for them on the X system is the 23mm, by the time they come out with it fuji will have released they'res and you wont want to buy it any how.

If they released the 23mm RIGHT now they would make some decent money from the X mount...

Meh, zeiss is zeiss...they think they are the best. so they take theyre time.
