Owner reviews: Zeiss Touit 12 mm f/ 2.8

Ferenc Boloni 26.11.2018 16:28:29
Period of use: 3 months

Strengths:

Is one APS-C-sensor lens 18mm and not bad at all sharp on an entire image, not just the center.


Weaknesses:

Yes like most of the wide lens the distortions, and quite expensive.


Comments:

Really hard find wide open APS-C lens sharp the entire image, this lens is great.
