New Zeiss Touit Lenses for Sony NEX

For those that have followed my journey in fashion photography have noticed that I’m quite the fan when it comes to the Sony NEX-7.  Zeiss recently announced more details about their new primes in the 32mm and 12mm range.

Personally I’ll be interested in the 32mm because I can use that in my line of work.  I’m looking forward to putting that lense to use.  With the crop sensor conversion the 32mm effectively becomes a  48mm.  I’m in need of a quality lense with a longer focal length than the Zeiss 24mm 1.8.  The 24mm is great for those times when I want to pull in the background in the pic, but distortion becomes a concern when I’m too close to the model.  Thats when what I call “the bobble head effect” becomes an issue where the head and facial features is larger than the body.

The lenses are expected to ship in June so hopefully I’ll be able to follow up with my first impression review.  As seen before, my past reviews are not going to “measure-bate” specs and talk about bokeh this and that.  I’m a real world results kind of photographer so stay tuned for pics of what I shoot, agency models.  You’re not going to find landscape, nature or some macro pics from my review.  There’s plenty of others shooting and reviewing gear based on that.

What good is a blog post without some of my own pics.  Check out a few pics taken with the Sony NEX-7 and Zeiss 24mm 1.8.
