In a kink in the market, new Zeiss Touit lenses are in some cases selling for less than used ones, due to instant rebates in the neighborhood of 30%.
Seems like every one I know in the business of filmmaking at one point or another ogles Zeiss glass.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a new Zeiss lens for less than the Sony E-mount and Fuji X-mount Touit series of lenses now on sale at B&H, Amazon and others. Try $499 for their 32mm f/1.8 (B&H | Amazon) or $699 for their 12mm f/2.8 (B&H | Amazon).
Of course, you are getting manual focus – but you’re not interested in Zeiss glass for auto-focus, are you?
I really have to get my hands on one of these some day. [bctt tweet=”Zeiss Touit lenses at lowest prices we've seen”]
