Video: New Carl Zeiss Touit AF Lenses Explained.

Cameras

Here is a quick video with Dr. Michael Pollmann explaining the new auto focus Touit lenses from Carl Zeiss. Currently only  a 12mm f2.8 and 32mm f2.8 are available in either Sony E mount or Fuji X mount. The New AF system may be a first for Carl Zeiss Lenses. I expect the auto focus system to be rock solid. Great for stills!

Here is a rip from the Carl Zeiss website.

Touit 2.8/12

As far as the eye can see

With an angle of view of 99 degrees, the Touit 2.8/12 wide-angle lens will soon become a firm favourite, particularly for landscapes and architectural photography. Its unique T* multicoating guarantees maximum transmission and outstanding absorption of extraneous light. The result: breathtaking image quality from edge to edge and corner to corner of the entire image field. What’s more, all moving parts of the Touit 2.8/12, conceived specifically for Sony NEX and Fujifilm X Series cameras, are engineered for extreme precision and a long working life. And finally, its strong and rigid metal bayonet mount makes it an absolutely dependable companion for many years to come.

Touit 1.8/32

Magician of the moment

The best of two worlds. Just like a 50 mm lens in 35 mm photography, the Touit 1.8/32 offers the same angle of view as the human eye. However, optimised for use with APS-C format sensors, it is simultaneously a lens that is so light and compact that it can be taken along simply anywhere and everywhere you go. Whether you are shooting portraits, landscapes or spontaneous snapshots, you will never cease to be amazed by what a Touit 1.8/32 can tease out of your camera. It is quite simply the ideal companion for capturing perspectives and colour- and lighting moods in perfect pictures.
