The Zeiss Touit E 32mm f/1.8 is a high quality normal range lens designed for Sony NEX cameras and camcorders. Key features include:
- Normal Range E-Mount Lens: With 35mm focal length equivalent to 48mm after sensor-crop, the Touit 32mm is an ideal lens for just about any shooting style. The fast f/1.8 aperture makes it great for low light shooting, as well as subject / background separation. It features full electronic compatibility with the camera, including autofocus, exposure control, and EXIF data.
- Optical Design: The Touit 32mm is based on the classic Planar formula which, by design, corrects for most aberrations and distortion while retaining high image sharpness and clarity. Each element has the Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coatings to help minimize reflections and boost image clarity and microcontrast. A nine-blade, nearly circular aperture renders out-of-focus highlights.
- Durable Build: The Touit line of lenses are constructed with durable metal barrels that feature rubberized control rings for a improved manual focus performance over most available E-mount lenses. Its all-metal bayonet mount ensures a solid camera / lens connection.
The 32mm Touit has rapidly become my favorite NEX lens. It’s sharp wide open, but stopped down just a bit, to f/2.2 it becomes spectacularly sharp. Autofocus is accurate and while manual focus is “fly-by-wire”, using the electric motor rather than mechanical gears, it’s very nicely implemented and easy to use. It’s pricey, but worth it.
One note for people shooting video, though. The focusing motor is DC, not USM, so it makes a bit of noise. Nothing that bothers a photographer, even in a quiet area, but enough to be heard on audio tracks if the microphone is mounted near the camera. Since there is no mechanical focus, the motor is working even when you focus manually.
