Zeiss has made two prime lenses, that are primarily for the NEX system, but they were able to adapt the design with little work for the Fuji system and released them for Fuji as well. Ask Zeiss why they chose the focal lengths they did. Fuji has been releasing a pretty logical set so far, imo.

So all is good then? I am happy for you that the lens selection works for you! I was reflecting on lens availability for the Fuji system, why you bring up the NEX system I don't understand, since I don't have a NEX camera and this is the Fuji forum! I appreciate that Zeiss being mainly interested in Sony, but this doesn't really address my concern. I believe that Zeiss is working on a 50mm Macro? Certainly not another "must have" for people who already own the 60mm.

I started this thread because I kept on bumping into 12 vs 14 mm, first tests on 32 vs 34 etc. links on the internet and hardly anybody asked the question why so close etc. Obviously the wrong mindset I seem to be in. Not much point discussing this then aye??



Are you trolling, or just dense?

Zeiss and Fuji are SEPARATE companies. I quite clearly explained why Zeiss is making the lenses they are making (because Sony), and they have nothing to do with what Fuji is making.

Fuji's lens lineup has been nicely balanced so far. Is there something for everyone? Of course not, they still have releases to go. But your insinuation that Fuji is releasing Zeiss lenses that are close to their own releases is absolutely false.

If you don't find Fuji's releases up to your needs, there is plenty of wonderful other systems out there. OR you can be patient, as the 23mm and 56mm primes will be released soon. As well as the WA zoom (10-20?).
