Re: Zeiss Touit or Fuji X decision

Deciding between two cameras is fine, and deciding between two lenses is fine, but when deciding between a camera and a lens the lens should win out every time. Put another way, when the Fuji X-E1 becomes a glorified paperweight in a few years like all the mirrorless cameras before it (PEN E-P1s can be had for $150 these days), the Touit lenses will still be current and still selling at their current list price.

I couldn't agree more. While I like the retro Fuji body, it's the lenses I find intriguing. I've still got lenses from my 1967 Nikkormat that I use, but I don't use that body. You bring up a good point, that the Zeiss lenses are likely to hold their value and that is an unknown for the Fuji at this point.
