ZEISS 50mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Lens (Fujifilm X-Mount) is a moderate telephoto macro lens designed for use on cameras with APS-C format sensors and as such provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 75mm. This lens is compatible with Fujifilm X mirrorless cameras and supports all camera functions, including autofocus and exposure control. With a 1:1 magnification ratio, it offers close-up macro capability and its minimum focus distance is 6". An f/2.8 maximum aperture is effective in low light and provides shallow depth of field focus.

A complex floating lens system ensures a uniform length when focusing and provides consistently sharp performance. The optical design includes two aspherical elements and two anomalous partial dispersion elements which minimize lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberrations. Its nearly circular 9-blade diaphragm combined with depth of field control enables imaging with a soft, pleasing, out-of-focus background. It is an ideal lens for portraiture, still-life, landscape and numerous other photo and video applications. 

The physical construction of the lens features a sleek, all black, metal lens barrel with rubberized control rings for smooth precision when working with manual focus. A metal bayonet mount ensures accurate alignment. Aperture stops are clearly marked in white on the lens barrel for manual exposure control.

 

Fujifilm X Compatibility
Designed for use on Fujifilm X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras, its 35mm focal length equivalence is 75mm. The lens offers complete compatibility with all camera functions, including accurate autofocus and exposure control. It features a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture for effective low-light shooting as well as greater control over the focus plane for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.
Optical Design
A floating element design provides images with sharp delineation and means the lens does not extend during focus. The optical construction includes two aspherical elements and two anomalous partial dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion.
Physical Design
A durable metal barrel with rubberized control rings provide improved handling. The metal bayonet mount ensures a solid connection between the camera and lens, and a nine-blade, nearly circular aperture is used to render soft, out-of-focus highlights.

    ZEISS 50mm f/2.8 reviews

    Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens (Fujifilm X-Mount) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Lens!!! This is an excellent all around lens with very solid build. The aperture ring is not loose at all. The feel is amazing. It's compact and fast focusing. It is silent as well. The sharpness is out of the world hands down with all due respect to Fuji lenses. This lens excels in portrait, landscape, and macro photography equally. Good bokeh and such. You get what you pay for. A true Zeiss and autofocus. A first! I doubt this will be discounted down the road due to its versatility. But all I know is that this lens is a dandy and that I love using it. You just have to respect how it operates and just do not knock it down like some reviewers would. Buy it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is designed for. I already own Fuji's XF60mm F2.4 R Macro lens, and purchased the Zeiss because of it's 1:1 magnification ratio, as I am predominantly a flower photographer. Of course, I also expected increased sharpness, etc., just because of who is was manufactured by. The lens is scary-sharp from wide open through F/22. In relation to the Fuji 60mm, it seems to produce maybe 1/2 stop more brightness with the same camera(X-E1) settings, although I arrive at this point subjectively. It focuses almost exactly like the Fuji 60mm, slow and laboring if you miss the focus point and the lens travels to infinity and back. I only use it in manual focus mode, in conjunction with my X-E1's Autofocus lock. It is a little noisy as the lens resolves to the new position as the focus ring is turned. It is not a sports lens due to the slowness of it's contast-based focus method. You can use old film camera/manual focus tricks such as pre-focusing for action shots if you're willing to work on your hand-to-eye coordination. Works at my Grand-daughter's soccer games fine, but may be risky if you're on assignment to cover an Olympic event.Then why 5 stars? Here it is for me. I wanted an extremely sharp 1:1 macro lens to photography flowers. There won't be a better one for this purpose made for the Fuji X-series. AF-L, then manually fine tune focus (with focus-peaking), then make the capture with 2-second timer engaged, most of the time on a tripod. That would be my workflow in any case. I got exactly what I wanted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb optic - as you'd expect from Zeiss It's a Zeiss Makro-planar design, which in some senses is really all that needs to be said. The optics are superb, as one would expect from a Zeiss. It delivers biting, cut-your-eyeballs sharpness from corner to corner, saturated colors, and a very flat field of focus. Bokeh is smooth, with nice, circular out of focus highlights. AF is reasonably quick - actually quite quick for a macro lens - and very accurate. It's small and light, in keeping with the small and light raison d'etre of the X-series cameras. I've also used this lens with a Nikon 4T closeup lens to go even closer than 1:1, with surprisingly good results. The drawbacks are very, very picky and are not the fault of the lens at all. Minimum focus distance is quite close, and like any such lens, you can get in your own light. I get around this by using my Sigma EM-140 macro ring light. It's a Nikon fit, so it doesn't do through-the-lens flash metering, but that's hardly the fault of the lens! Another drawback is that it's small enough and light enough to encourage hand-holding, but it's really not suited for that: I simply can't keep still enough to keep subjects within the narrow DOF of macro work at magnification approaching 1:1. This is not the lens's fault either, as it applies to any macro lens near 1:1 without a tripod. Results from this Zeiss on the X-T10 are indistinguishable from similarly framed shots with a Nikon D3x + 105/f2.8 AFS VR Micro-Nikkor or 60/f2.8 AFS Micro-Nikkor once both are printed 17x22. Price is also far less than, say, the superb Zeiss 100/f2.8 Makro-Planar in ZF mount, despite that lens only reaching 1:2 unassisted. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to shoot macro subjects with Fuji XF series cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens! I can't say enough about this lens. It is super sharp, very well built and and a prime example (pardon the pun) of why Zeiss has a stellar reputation. This is my first Zeiss lens and I envision a long relationship with several more in my bag. I really do love this lens!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging This lens is very sharp at 5.6 but diffraction sets in even at f11. Of course, this means expectedly narrow dof at macro. You have to get very close to use 1:1 , so close you can't use the hood, and when you get it right results can be quite good. Focusing is quite smooth and build is outstanding.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A big disappointment! I played with this much hyped lens for a week and finally decided to return it. I own and treasure both the Touit 32 and 12 and they're gems. At 100% magnification, the sharpness from the 32 mm beats the 50 mm hands down. Please note that I mounted the camera with the macro lens on a tripod. So, if you're considering this lens for macro work, forget it and get the Fuji instead. If you're considering this lens for portraits, I recommend evaluating Fuji's 56mm lens that is 2+ stops faster. I guess, that Zeiss hurriedly launched this lemon in order to compete with Fuji's excellent offerings in 2 distinct product categories - macro and portrait. While a macro lens needs biting sharpness, a portrait lens needs to pare down sharpness for flattering skin renditions. The result of Zeiss' compromise formula is evident in the Touit 50m. Will we ever have separate offerings of a true macro and a true portrait lens in the Touit line?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Macro capabilities I bought this lens primarily to take pictures of flowers. I am very favorably impressed. The resolving power is fantastic, the colors are vivid, images crisp up to 1:1. I have not used it much for portraiture (my other reason for buying it) but expect it will perform magnificantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close up close up....wow This is one beautiful lens. Quality is outstanding, however be prepare to get close and closer to your subjects for any macro shots.
