From a physical standpoint, the lens prompted several of the same gripes we had of the physically similar and recently tested 32mm f/1.8 Zeiss Touit. The aperture and manual focus rings, for example, are too close together, and we often changed both aperture and manual focus when we wanted only the latter. A locking option for the aperture ring’s “A” setting would have solved this. It’s not something that Sony NEX shooters need to worry about, however, because their version has no aperture ring—the camera controls aperture. The Touit’s outer rim flares out far enough to cast a shadow across a third of the frame when used at close- to mid-range focusing distances with the Fujifilm’s X-E1’s built-in flash.
