The Zeiss 32 arrived today. Immaculate condition. My initial impressions are pretty close to the exact opposite of what I read in the blog reviews. Did I see any vignetting in the corners at f1.8? Nope. Not even a little. Is the autofocus noisy? Nope. There is the little chirp when it reaches focus but nothing noticeable from the motor. Are the rubberized focus and aperture rings problematic? Not for me. Is it sharp as a tack wide open? Nope. Mine isn't. Actually I find it unacceptably soft wide open. At f1.8, it is fine for internet and computer screen viewing but the 100% crops show the edges and corners to be pretty soft. At f2.8 it is as sharp as a new razor blade. It is slightly less contrasty than my Fujifilm prime lenses but very slightly. Color rendition is accurate and no aberrations were noted. It is very well corrected - except at the edges at f1.8. Overall it's a fine lens comparable to the Fujinon single focal length products. If you make big prints and need sharp corners at f1.8 you may want to buy the Fuji 35 f1.4. If you want a well made, high performance normal lens for your Fuji system, it doesn't really get any better than this. Terrific lens.
