It's been a great lens, Jose. The only complaint I have with the Touit 12 is that it doesn't quite have the same level of "Zeiss color" that I see with my other Zeiss lenses. To be clear the color is still very good, it's just doesn't seem to be quite as good. Maybe this is partly because it's a wide angle, so it has to capture a broader dynamic range of lighting in any given shot compared to what a narrower lens would need to do.

But it's so sharp I almost feel like I can just haphazardly point & shoot it at anything, and (given how wide it is) find something good to crop out of whatever I just captured!

Parallaxproblem, the issues I've had with Sony's QC (also on the 16mm) is a key factor that made me choose the Touit instead. I just didn't feel like playing lens roulette. Though I don't know what reputation the 10-18 has with respect to sample variation.

Here are some of the pics I've taken with the Touit 12.
