Zeiss Launches Their New Touit Mirrorless Camera Lenses: New 50 Macro on the Way

Touit 1.8-32 on Sony NEX and Fujifilm X

The other day, Zeiss explained why they named their new lens lineup the Touit brand. And today, they’re announcing that the 12mm f2.8 and 32mm f1.8 optics will officially be launched. We played with the lenses a while ago at Photokina, and we’re also itching to get them in for review. The company will be coming to NYC soon for an official press event where we’ll get to fondle zee new glass.

But wait: there’s more! The company also announced that a 50mm f2.8 Macro lens will be coming soon too before the end of the year! It seems like Zeiss is really trying to get into the mirrorless camera game now, and honestly they belong there.

Tech Specs are after the jump.
