Fellow NEX users:

Given the current discount on Touit 12 that brings the price down to 1k, would you prefer it over Sony 10-18?

I have the Touit 12 for my Nex7. I bought it mainly because it is the first German Zeiss AF lens. Too bad it did not have the aperture ring on the lens as the Fuji version. Image quality might be slightly better than the 10-18 but you give up on other focal lengths and OSS. The only complaint I have is the weird focus noise it makes.

Now that A6000 was announced, it looks like the Touit would not work well with OSPDAF (if at all) without firmware upgrade. Since I think this focus system will be the future I would buy the 10-18 if I can do it over again.

Why do you need fast focus on a ultra wide angle?
