In conclusion I must say it was a bit challenging testing the lens, given the limited time and my normal focal length vision.  However at the same time I did appreciate what the lens can do and of course the build quality.  It is a speciality lens for sure, especially given the extreme wide angle.  And is something to take into consideration before acquiring one. Like many I was very excited when I first heard about Zeiss making a series of lenses for the Sony “E” and the Fuji “X” mounts.  However after seeing which focal lengths would be introduced first, my enthusiasm was cooled .  The choice of the introductory focal lengths, is an even better indicator that Zeiss designed these lenses for the Sony NEX system.  As it filled vacancies in the Sony’s system.  If one likes or is in need of this type of focal length, then this is a lens that will not disappoint.  Top notch resolution and build quality being it’s primary attributes.  The question begs to be asked, should one consider this Zeiss lens over the Fuji 14mm?  Let me just repeat what I said earlier.  At this focal length a couple of millimeters make a much greater difference then what one might suppose.....
