Re: It's time to shop...which lens SEL24f18, SEL35f18 or Touit 32f18?

Very different focal lengths, hard to compare. That being said, the Touit will almost certainly be the sharpest wide open, while the 35mm could be really nice for video with its OSS. 24mm is a wonderful all-around focal length, and the Sony Zeiss 24mm is a wonderful lens.

I've been using the Sigma 30mm and an Olympus Zuiko 24mm f/2.8 MC lately, to determine my preferred all-around focal length before potentially investing in a more expensive option. I've grown quite fond of the 24mm Zuiko. I'm a pixel peeper so I keep it at f/4, f5.6 or f/8. I might not bother investing in the Zeiss; I can plainly see that this Zuiko is out-resolving the NEX-7 sensor, and I don't miss the speed of AF too much.
