Dont know if it is better or worse than the Sony 35 1.8 but here is an example from my backyard:

I have the Sony Zeiss 24mm and the Zeiss Touit 12mm, plus the Sony 18-200mm. If I were buying from scratch now, I'd probably go for the Zeiss Touit 12mm and 32mm plus the Sony 18-200mm. And in either case I'd have my eyes on the Zeiss Touit macro set for later this year...

I'll be getting mine tomorrow, and can do a quick comparison with my sel35

One thing we will have to look out for is camera shake, we get awfully spoiled with OSS. The slightest bit of camera shake will suppress the gains in sharpness from the Zeiss.

Can't believe the contrast,color and sharpness of this shot. The Zeiss look is alive and well. Cogradulations!

I believe I've seen that you have nex-6. Once you get the Touit - can you please check if PDAF works with it?

I thought that myself - that is a very vibrant image.

I have several Contax g lenses on my Nex 6 and the first thing I noticed about them was the vibrant colours and sharpness.

Re: Got the zeiss touit 32mm 1.8 today

I got a little stir crazy sitting up with my leg raised up for several hours and decided to hobble out for a few shots.

I will say this lens is darn sharp wide open. AF is a little hit or miss, but I expect that with the NEX 7 as all my lenses are this way....I hope Sony sees fit to on improving this. Manual focus is sublime with both Touit lenses I have. Colors are tremendous with this lens on my wide gamut Dell monitor. Coversion to sRGB does not do it justice...the only image not impacted by the conversion was the Lazy Greyhound pic.
