I’m not normally one to do deals posts, but this just landed in my inbox. If you’re looking to round out your X-Mount prime collection, now is the time to do it. B&H Photo have Zeiss’s Touit 32mm f/1.8 and 12mm f/2.8 lenses on sale as a kit for $919 USD. That’s the cost of the Fuji’s 14mm f/2.8 on it’s own right now. It’s better than a two for one deal.
I don’t have experience with the 32mm ƒ/1.8 yet, but my tests comparing the 12mm f/2.8 lens to the 10-24mm f/4 and 14mm f/2.8 are showing it to be a worthy opponent. It’s not quite as sharp as the 14mm f/2.8, but those extra 2mm make a remarkable difference. Wide-angle nuts will appreciate Zeiss’s offering.
For my fellow Canadian Fuji fans, this deal might be even better. Remember that “photographic lenses” are duty free. You can happily order from B&H and only pay the taxes and a few other very minor fees. It ends up being about $1,060 USD, or $1,150 CDN total with taxes 2-6 day shipping if you let B&H handle customs clearance. That’s $100 less than the 12mm alone before tax here in Canada.
Already have one of the Zeiss lenses or either the 14mm ƒ/2.8 or 35mm ƒ/1.4 already? You can grab either Zeiss for $200 off which isn’t too shabby.
