In Topic: Zeiss Touit 2.8/50M for Sony E-Mount

My buddy came back with A6000 and Touit 50M and he told me the combo was incredibly fast under water

Having gone thru all your wishes, I think A6000 is the camera of choice. Needless to say EM1 is the one, if cost is not a concern but Sony A6000 answers many questions older Nex shooter like me. As the lens side, the current 50 macro 2.8 Zeiss does a decent job and the wide angle options include the 10-18 zoom and Zeiss 12/2.8. I suggest to shoot both EM5 and A6000 to decide which system to go. Olympus undboutedly has the most complete lens system with an excellent camera. Sony plays a catchup game with this A6000....I personally tested in Sony's shop and found it focuses more or less the same as A99. More tests are needed. Two of my buddies bout A6000 and the fantastic Nauticam housings.

I can confirm I also have the same problem with the Zeiss Touit 50 macro on my Sony a6000 - I am not happy.

Given the length of time it has taken Zeiss to produce this lens it is unacceptable that such a simple flaw was not detected.

Believe it or not, my Nex5r was no longer functioning after using Touit 12. I have to send the body back. Having Sony made Zeiss lenses like 24-70 f4, 55f1.8, 35f2.8, I can say Sony makes much better Zeiss lens in terms of build quality and mechanical performance. I also happened to have 10-18f4 which is great in many ways.
