The lens appears to be clad in high quality plastic with a less expensive dull pot-metal mount. The focusing ring is covered in rubber that collects dust easily, but cleans up easily too.

The hood fits on the lens with a snug fit when attached in the forward shooting mode, but when reversed over the lens to save room in the bag, it's really hard to mount, and you may break the hood if you get mad quickly over stuff like this; I don't think it's made to mount in the reverse. The ZEISS Touit 2.812 X-Mount Lens is made in Japan. The aperture blades are very noisy for some reason; check it ZEISS Touit 2.812 X-Mount Lens yourself by switching back and forth between review and live mode with AF turned off.

So far, Sony has only one e-mount lens that uses this size, the two versions of the mm; the less expensive Sony Tamron ZEISS Touit 2.812 X-Mount Lens of the mm uses 62mm. This lens auto-focuses quickly and mostly accurately, and has a somewhat loud focusing motor, and sounds like an electric toothbrush when focusing; tough luck for you video nuts out there as the noise will probably be picked up by the cameras mic.

The aperture will go from f2. At the other end of the aperture ring is f2. On the X Pro 1, it has an 18mm field of view: And protecting that front element is a removable lens hood made from plastic. When the hood is removed it cuts down the overall size quite a bit.

Build Quality The Zeiss 12mm f2. It is by all means an extremely solid lens. I tested it in various situations and environments and it survived basically everything with no issues at all.


The lens was subjected to a bump on a turnstile in ZEISS Touit 2.812 X-Mount Lens NYC subway system and suffered no damage. Even more amazingly, I shot part of a wedding with this lens on the beach and despite how hard the wind was blowing, it suffered from no sand damage.

In most of the photos that we shot, the focusing was very accurate but obviously became more accurate when the focusing ZEISS Touit 2.812 X-Mount Lens was made smaller. When the reticule was made smaller, this lens still focused faster than the Fujifilm 35mm f1. Though the 35mm f1. To be fair, the 35mm f1.

The reason for this is because it has an aperture ring incorporated into the design. When it comes to manually focusing this lens, Zeiss would have been much better off with adding in a depth of field focusing scale.
