    Rediscovering the Zeiss Touit 12mm on the a7RII in Iceland

    During my recent trip to Iceland I had planned on packing the new Loxia 21mm but it did not ship in time so I decided to take a loaner Touit 12mm. The APS-C lens converts to 18mm and 18mp on the a7RII - not too shabby. See below for a few of my fav shots from this combination. I was so pleased that I may have to purchase one just to have a compact AF wide option. They were recently selling new for $699 - quite a bargain for this level of performance.

    Chad, the fair price (no bargain) for them were when they were sold 2 (32 and 12) for the price of one in the US. They should do that globally to clear their stocks.
