Re: Zeiss Touit or Fuji X decision

I'm not sure what you're seeing, but I looked at these comparison pictures between Touit 32 and Fuji 35, and saw better corners in the former at wider apertures. I attributed that to potential lack of DOF due to slightly longer FL (although, 3mm is fairly negligible but when pixel peeping, it can matter).

I just want to be clear. I'm not making any decision based on those images. It would be foolish. I've just decided that this is the time to do my test before I sink another $2,200 into Nex lenses.

The nice thing is that those lenses are for both platforms.

As for corners, I'm not a corner peeper. I look for color rendition and micro-contrast and don't worry as much about the corners. Zeiss has often neglected corner sharpness in favor of these things in the past (to my eye) and I like that. Some are saying that they've gone the Canon-Nikon way with these lenses and neglected color and contrast for sharp corners. Frankly, I think it is too soon to know.

Thanks
Rich
