Re: I don't really understand Zeiss' offerings

We can put a number on the differences. FOV for APS sensor is

18mm - 76 degrees

14mm - 89 degrees (17% wider than 18mm)

12mm - 99 degrees (30% wider than 18mm)

That's just numbers ;-), but thanks for summarizing as they may give a rough impression.

It all depends on your needs and the 12mm lens is quite different regarding the photographic purpose to the 14mm.

If you need 18mm FF FOV wait for the Zeiss, if you prefer 21mm FF FOV take the Fuji, it is as simple.

I for myself prefer 21mm, have loved my Zeiss Distagon 21mm on my 5dmkII, but already sold it in the outlook of the way smaller and lighter Fuji. The Zeiss is a rock of a lens, but optically also a dream.

If I would like to go wider, than really wide, means roughly in the area of 14mm FF FOV or less.
