32mm f/1.8 Zeiss Touit for Fuji X Mount is SHARP!

At my day job, we recently moved to a new office. Our interior decorator purchased a couple of 5×7 pewter colored photo frames to homey of the place. His instructions were to fill them with B&W family photos.

I took the Fuji X-T1, the Zeiss 32mm f/1.8, and the flash that came with the camera to shoot these photos. The camera was set to B/W mode with the yellow filter applied. These photos are the result (directly out of the camera (the one along the chain link fence was shot while were both walking with facial autofocus enabled):

One of the best aspects of the Fuji X-T1 is the quality of the JPEGs. These images are fantastic! I’ve used the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 before and if I had to pick one lens over the other, I would pick the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8. Why? The lens focuses faster, the images are sharp, and the build feels better than Fuji’s 35mm f/1.4.
