Fotograaf Chris Gampat test voor het weblog de nieuwe Zeiss Touit 12mm/2.8 onder zware omstandigheden in de praktijk (o.a. op het strand). In een zeer uitvoerig verslag met talloze voorbeeldfoto’s geeft hij zijn mening over deze ultra groothoek van Zeiss voor de Fujifilm X camera’s.
“Autofocusing with the 12mm f2.8 Touit on the X Pro 1 was surprisingly speedy as the system isn’t exactly known for its fast focusing abilities. We tested the lens in both good lighting and low lighting and generally focused with the same speed. The only difference was how accurate the focusing was. In most of the photos that we shot, the focusing was very accurate but obviously became more accurate when the focusing reticule was made smaller. When the reticule was made smaller, this lens still focused faster than the Fujifilm 35mm f1.4 X series and the 14mm f2.8 X series lens.”
“This is one heck of a sharp lens. We almost never wanted to stop it down beyond f2.8 but in many sunny situations we needed to. Its sweet spot is around f4 or f5.6. But even then, it doesn’t get drastically sharper than at f2.8. When you incorporate this lens sharpness with the way that the Fujifilm X Trans Sensor renders sharpness in images, you’ve got an extremely killer combination.”
