Choosing the Zeiss Touit 32mm over the Fuji XF 35mm

A big part of the Fuji X system’s success is its fantastic line of Fujinon lenses. In a short time, Fujifilm has created an extensive group of lenses. The XF line covers a wide variety of focal lengths, and started off with some fantastic prime lenses. Since then, they’ve improved their lenses’ AF capability with each generation, and added some phenomenal pro-quality zooms.  Among my favourite Fujinon XF lenses are their XF 18mm, 10-24mm and 23mm.

In the middle of 2013, Zeiss introduced its Touit lenses for the Fuji X mount.  These lenses were designed in close collaboration with Fujifilm, and have full AF and inter-communication with the Fuji X camera bodies.
