Wow, I am surprised at the price jump. There was a Zeiss special a while back and they were about the same price as the Fujinon. There is no significant difference in IQ between the Zeiss 12mm and Fuji 14mm ... the same can be said of the Zeiss 32mm and the Fuji 35mm. Yes, the Fuji 35mm is very sharp wide open. All Fuji XF lenses are very sharp ... easily L lens sharp.
