Re: anybody tried both zeiss touit 12mm and samyang 12mm?

Difficult to imagine someone having both lenses (unless they rent one to try).

I have the Rokinon and can't imagine the Zeiss being better at F4, 5.6, F8 because

my copy is excellent at those f-stops. I would expect the Zeiss to have the edge in CA etc, but not sharpness.

As manual focus is not an issue, I'd just get the Samyang/Rokinon...also due to price.

See my posts for some samples.

Hope this helps.
