    What an unfortunate name! If we didn't know better could easily be mistaken for the ' twit ' collection.

    The 12mm interest me but like to see it against Fuji's 14mm. The 14mm looks really good and on my list.

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    I think they are a major rip off! $23 for a lens cap and $45 for the shade!

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    How much is the Sony RX-1 shade? I'll save you from looking it up...how does $180 sound?

    The Touit lenses come with caps and shade.

    Robert, They do not.

    BTW, leave the 7* product alone. That is peerless!

    Look at page 5: "ZEISS Touit lenses come standard with a matching lens shade."

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    Why are B&H and Adorama listing these separately? Why would anyone want to buy them if they are standard?

    I haven't seen them on B&H and the Adorama listing isn't complete. Where are you finding prices for caps and shades?

    Plenty of other brand shades for that much, or more, when those shades are bundled as well. I guess they can get broken or lost. Not with me, I don't use them.

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    I buy cheap metal lens hoods off eBay and replace rear caps with cheap knock offs and store the lens hoods and caps that come with lenses in there box. This way you don't lose the good stuff . Also the metal lens hood act as protection and I never use front caps. Lenses are always ready to shoot this way. There dirt cheap too like 8 bucks and I pretty much have every filter size. Helps with resale of lenses too

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    Looks like they are the replacements. Robert, thanks for the pdf.

    My Zeiss/Sony NEX 24/1.8 hood is unused because it is humongous.

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    I really wanted the 32mm f/1.8 to be faster, for the aperture, that's crazy expensive, but for an AF Zeiss, I'll let it slip this time!

    When I saw the name I immediately thought of the old joke (paraphrased here for topic):

    "I should've gone to that photoshoot. If only I'd got a round touit".

    And now you can.

    "Humongous" is relative. Compared to DSLR or MF lenses, it is refreshingly small. Compared to m43, it is much larger.

    If you have seen/handled one of these hoods, you would not say that.

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    Worth a look (from the previous link):

    Carl Zeiss Lenses - Developing the new Touit lens family - YouTube

    I like that clear, unambiguous statement that all the elements are made of real glass.

    The prices in the EU are now known. 799 Euros for 32/1.8 (complete with the hood and the caps) and 1099 Euros for the 12/2.8.

    Re: Zeiss Touit Lenses

    These really appear to be a bargain even without comparing the price of a newly announced toy lens (Amazon.com: Nikon 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 (Silver): Camera & Photo).
