I am not surprised by Michel's observation. I didn't expect Zeiss to make better (IQ wise) X-mount lenses than already superb Fujinon 35&14.

My thoughts exactly. Based on those images, the Fuji 35 is sharper and has better color than the Tuit. Even with my Nikon gear, I never really bought into the "Zype" around these lenses (I owned both 35 and a 50). I tried their 24/1.8 on my NEX system when I had it, and while it was miles ahead of what Sony was putting out natively, it still wasn't outstanding.

Many people and reviewers seem to drive the notion that Zeiss is comparable to Leica when it comes to their lenses, but I just never saw it.

I will gladly stick with my native Fuji lenses.
