ZEISS 12mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The ZEISS Touit 12mm f/2.8 Lens (Fujifilm X-Mount) is a wide-angle prime lens designed specifically for use on APS-C-sized image sensors, and as such provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm. This lens is compatible with Fujifilm X mirrorless cameras and supports all camera functions, including autofocus and exposure control.

The Distagon design of this lens integrates a floating element design that includes two aspherical elements and three partial-dispersion elements to reduce aberrations and distortion to produce high image clarity, sharpness, and even brightness. Carl ZEISS T* anti-reflective coatings have also been applied to all lens surfaces to improve light transmission and image contrast by minimizing surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting.

The construction of the lens features a metal lens barrel with rubberized control rings for high precision when manually focusing. A rigid metal bayonet mount ensures accurate alignment and a nearly circular nine-blade aperture works to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus highlight quality.

Fujifilm X Compatibility
Designed for use on Fujifilm X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm. The lens offers complete compatibility with all camera functions, including accurate autofocus and exposure control. It features a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture that aids in low-light shooting as well as greater control over the focus plane for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.
Optical Design
This lens features the Distagon optical design with a floating element construction and includes two aspherical elements and three partial dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion while offering increased sharpness and even illumination. Carl ZEISS T* anti-reflective coatings have been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections in order to provide greater image clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Physical Design
The lens features a rigid, durable metal barrel with rubberized control rings to provide improved handling abilities. The metal bayonet mount ensures a solid connection between the camera and lens, and a nine-blade, nearly circular aperture is used to smoothly render out-of-focus highlights.

    ZEISS 12mm f/2.8 reviews

    Touit 12mm f/2.8 Lens (Fujifilm X-Mount) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional lens I have been using this lens for quite some time now and am very pleased with the results. I have a Fuji XE-2 and this lens balances very well with the camera. I use it to force perspective in wide angle for landscape; it's great for architectural images as well as still life imagery. With the Fuji XE-2 I especially like the ability to change the aspect ratio of the image to 1:1 thus making this lens perform like a 40mm medium format lens.Two lenses in one. I have not experienced any problem with the aperture ring accidentally changing but am careful to always check the viewfinder as this can be a problem however minor. The construction is excellent and the images are first rate. No complaints at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but too big I already had the Fuji 14 mm, and I wanted an even wider lens. I had not reckoned on the larger size of the Touit. I ended up returning it. For me, the Fuji X system is all about compact size. If I am willing to carry a large camera, I have DSLRs and MF cameras. If I'm not, then this lens will stay at home. For the extra field of view of 12 mm vs 14 mm, I'm not willing to pay the size penalty.The image quality, mechanical build feel and autofocus performance were excellent. The aperture ring is a tad too loose when leaving the A setting...I'd rather have a significant effort required to take it out of A.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Excellent Zeiss Lens! A true Carl Zeiss auto focus lens! A rarity! Not like a Sony Zeiss designed by Sony while Zeiss Reps would not speak for. This lens is solid just like the other Touits! Zeiss does not waste time or cut corners in their designs! It's sharp and very cool looking! The aperture ring is a hair looser than the 50mm. It can be bumped! So what! Respect it and watch what you're doing! Don't nag! The rubber aperture and focus ring are used by Zeiss on their most expensive Otus lenses. They did not make a mistake in that either!! Plus, at $, it's cheaper than the Fuji 14mm. What are you waiting for??? B&H customer service is first worldwide hands down! They are the best if there are any issues!! Try!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide Lens For Fuji I was unsure which to go with as there are lots of choices. The Fuji 10-24 really had my eye, but f/4 does serve my needs. I've used Zeiss for MANY years and know the quality of their optics. I was concerned with possible color differences between the two manufactures. Optically this lens is superb edge to edge, great contrasts and color and focuses fast on my X Pro 2. The only con for me is that for $699 (on sale), this should have a metal lens hood.The build quality is very good as well. I've been shooting mirrorless now for three wedding seasons and I'm still getting use to how light these little gems are. I'm forcing myself to shoot more wide angle just to switch things up a bit. This is another wonderful tool that is going to get a lot of use!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing ultra-wide lens! Been putting this lens thru the paces and I'm blown away by it. Can't say enough good things about it! Without question the best ultra-wide I've ever used by any manufacturer. It's been a long time since I had owned a Zeiss lens (not since my film days) but I was reminded very fast why I used to love shooting with Zeiss. Sharp as a tack, AF works fast & accurate on my X-Pro 1, very little distortion and great color & contrast. I like the build quality and the rubber rings turn nice. I had a hard time deciding between this and the Fuji 14mm and 10-24mm zoom. I have no doubts they are both amazing lenses. But I went with this because I was afraid 14mm wouldn't be wide enough and I didn't want to be limited to the f4 max opening on the zoom. No regrets at all with this lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, even for IR Exceptional lens, a true Zeiss ! I'm using it with a Fuji X-E1 converted to infra-red. It gives wonderful color and contrast and does not have hot spots at any aperture. It gives beautiful color in the X-Pro. I would recommend it for all uses !

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens I had bought the 8mm as I wanted a fisheye for my Fuji X-E1, the only other option was the Zeiss 12mm, but the difference in price was pretty drastic. The SamYang being like 350.00 and the Zeiss being about 900.00 and not knowing how much use I would get out of a fisheye, I tried the Samyang. Which was terrible. Then, B&H did a sale on the 12mm and the 32mm for $ ! Traded in my Samyang, sold the 32mm, and ended up getting this for about $! And WOW! Great lens. So nicemy only complaint is that it's a pretty big lens. And one of the reasons I like my X-E1 is that is' pretty compact. That aside, totally worth it if you have an Xmont and want a Fisheye. It doesn't so super weird fish eye, but rather.super wide.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why doesn't Zeiss fix their aperture ring??? I bought this lens instead of the 14mm Fuji, because it was on sale at B&H and was less expensive than the Fuji and because of its shorter focal length. Great lens. What I don't understand is the fact that people have been complaining about the aperture ring being too loose. Why hasn't Zeiss fixed the problem. I finally used gaffer tape to fix the aperture ring on f 8.
