Re: Zeiss Touit or Fuji X decision

Setting aside issues like focus peaking (which I think will ultimately end up with all systems) and video (a clear NEX advantage), I think your "choice" (preference.... ? whatever...) is simply going to come down you enjoy the respective shooting styles.  A very new school body or a very old school body.  Do the Fuji "quirks" (if they (a) still exist and (b) matter to you) irritate you as they did so many others.  Are the Fuji RAW issues such that they matter to your photography.

Personally, I think that last issue is where we start to cross over into DPReview over-analyzing.  Ultimately, the only things that really matter are do you enjoy the shooting experience and do you like the images.  A significant block of people swear by the Fuji in those instances.  Those same people also prefer the Fuji lenses over what they have seen thus far out of the X Mount versions of the Zeiss lenses, but at this point its really hard to compare the two pieces of glass.
