Lens Description: The best of two worlds. Just like a 50 mm lens in 35 mm photography, the Touit 1.8/32 offers the same angle of view as the human eye. However, optimised for use with APS-C format sensors, it is simultaneously a lens that is so light and compact that it can be taken along simply anywhere and everywhere you go. Whether you are shooting portraits, landscapes or spontaneous snapshots, you will never cease to be amazed by what a Touit 1.8/32 can tease out of your camera. It is quite simply the ideal companion for capturing perspectives and colour- and lighting moods in perfect pictures.

Photography Life Review Summary: The Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 is a great little lens for everyday photography. It is sharp, has great build quality and can render beautiful images with pleasing bokeh. While it is not as fast as the Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 R, it is comparably sharp, especially once stopped down a little. It certainly has its appeal for portraiture work and I really enjoyed using it when shooting weddings. Read the full Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Review by Photography Life.

This is my “go to” lens. I’m a rank amateur so I cannot give a detailed description but it has served me well. Autofocus, bokeh, claity. all good.
