Pros: Small for focal length and lightweight, low distortion if you take care of the framing, very versatile

Cons: some problems with focusing to infinity in manual because the ring has no stop, vintage autofocus

Opinion: Used with Fujifilm X-E4, an 18mm equivalent that has become, after years of companionship with the Canon EF-S 10-22mm, my universal lens. Used a lot for architecture and interior photography, it also performs very well for street photos because it is small and discreet. It gets worse with the lens hood, also because of the goblet shape that also forces you to use 67 mm filters. Sharp even without screaming at the miracle, it sometimes happens, when enlarging the image, that, at infinity, it does not appear perfectly in focus while close-ups and intermediates are very sharp. Taking into account that it is an 11-year-old lens, it is still valid for lenses but definitely outdated for the electronic part and autofocus. Cheap, for Zeiss, and so, like other lenses in the Touit series, I had the 32mm f/1.8, with a lot of plastic. Used is a real bargain, especially for Fujifilm because it costs, new, about 900 euros, 300 euros more than the equivalent for Sony E.

Pros: Compact, light, diaphragm opening at 2.8, name

Cons: Absence infinite indicator, dial manual focus that does not stop at the end of the run, diaphragms diaframmi ring too soft

Opinion: I say that I bought this lens especially for night photographs: when I used it for the first time at night, I realized that there was no way to set infinity in manual mode. The focus ring, in fact, has no end of the run, nor any indication. Reluctantly I gave up the 18 mm to move to the 21 mm of Fuji (there is both the end run and the indication of infinity).

Pros: Compactness, construction, reputation of the Marchiozeiss.

Cons: Sharpness is not so striking given the name it brings, high price of the new, aperture ring too slack, with lens hood mounted becomes less compact.

Opinion: Taken used as new, upgraded Sw. Internal, and comparative fact on tripod with my Fuji 10-24, F4 finding it superior only to F4, from F5, 6 onwards was lower as sharpness both in the center and at the edges than my 10-24, leaving me somewhat disappointed so Returned to the store trusted and took the 14 F2,8 which I have yet to try it adequately.

Pros: Well-kept optical diagram, sharpness, no flare, beautiful colors, light and pocket (no lens hood)

Cons: For me the price

Opinion: A questionable counter, the price, which however is an individual component. The optics are light, well built even in its satin and non-slip finish. Aesthetically in my opinion is presented in a superb way only with the lens hood attached, without it seems something that has lost pieces but you know. I Think it was the subject of studies from the point of view of the designer otherwise I will not explain. The aperture ring is sensitive and by easy Click, this could be a problem for someone who expects a more assertive aperture setting. For me the sharpness is its strong point, unstoppable, even too much, a lens that cuts and that returns bright colors if we also want to countertrend compared to the usual Zeiss yield notoriously more neutral. Here However I could not tell if it depends on the sensor on which it is used. I have the Fuji version. I replaced it to the 14mm F2,8 because two more mm on the wide angles make the difference often.

Pros: Great lens, gorgeous colors, brilliant even to the edges, no vignette and aberrations and flare almost nonexistent, great construction and no heavy

Cons: Aperture / close of the diaphragm and noisy AF

Opinion: I use it on a Sony Alpha 6000 and I have to say I'm extremely satisfied, lightweight and not cumbersome and really good construction of both the lens and the barrel, always carry it and be subject to dust water and anything else it's never ruined. Also used in extreme light conditions, such as strong backlights, chromatic aberrations and flare were very few, just a slight refresh with photoshop or lightroom to permanently remove them. The only "defect" if so can be said is that the AF and the diaphragm is noisy, so unsuitable for making videos. This objective, in my opinion, is great, it is worth its full price, I highly recommend it to landscape lovers.
