Samples from Zeiss 35mm and 55mm Sonnar FE and Touit 50mm Macro


Here are some samples we were able to take at PhotoPlus Expo. We tried the three new Zeiss lenses which are the 35mm f/2.8 Sonnar FE, the 55mm f/1.8 Sonnar FE, and the 50mm f/2.8 Makro Touit. The Zeiss FE lenses were located in the Sony exhibit alongside the new Sony A7 cameras. Both the 35mm and the 55mm Sonnar FE felt at home on the Sony NEX-7. They were neither heavy nor enormous on the NEX. The Sonnar FE samples were taken using autofocus. Click on them and they are 100% crops from RAW files from the NEX-7. We didn't have enough time with the lenses but the results are excellent.





The Zeiss Touit 50mm Macro Planar was stationed at the Carl Zeiss exhibit. We were lucky enough to speak with Dr. Pollman, Zeiss Program Manager, about the new Touit 50mm Macro. He stated that this is their first 50mm macro which can provide a 1 to 1 magnification. The shots below are manually focused at minimum focus distance of the Touit 50mm. Click and find the full processed raw file (20+ mb) from the NEX-7. The shots are very revealing - we cleaned the Touit 12mm, the lens in the picture, after seeing the shots at 100%. Just like the other lenses in the Zeiss Touit lens line, the 50mm Macro will not dissapoint.
