Consensus on the Zeiss 50mm f2.8 Touit

Hi forum!

I hope that somebody can help
I am looking at macro / short tele options for my new X-E3.  I bought it as I was looking for a light weight fun kit that gives great output and didn't want to spend the money to re-invest in Leica.

The previews of the Fujinon look spectacular, but it also looks like a very large lens and the cost will be very high!

The 60mm looks pretty good but is 1:2 and has a reputation for being slow. 
Which leaves the Touit as a potential option but there doesn't seem to be much real information about it!

I've used a lot of systems professionally for work and fun and I've always been a big fan of the Zeiss lenses (ZF then Milvus on Nikon, ZA on Sony, ZM on Leica and of course the Contax G lenses) so I'm hoping that the Touit are similar, but it would be great to hear from users.

Thanks all!
