I've written an extensive review of this lens on my website, complete with photographic and video examples. I'll share some of the finer points of this lens here, but for the full review, just google this lens and matthew durr photography.

So, making this review quick and concise: what does this lens do well on a NEX-7?
-Extremely high cross-frame sharpness
-Negligible chromatic aberrations, both in- and out-of-focus
-Stellar build quality
-Smooth bokeh up close
-Superb rubberized focus ring (it's fly-by-wire focusing though)

What holds the Touit 32mm back
-Bokeh gets a little busy as focus distance increases
-Multiple flare reflections
-Noticeable barrel distortion for a prime lens
-Expensive at $900

This lens can be a tough one to recommend to just anyone with a NEX (or Fuji camera, for that matter) considering its price. Compared to its most obvious competition, the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS at half the price, the Zeiss doesn't present a very high value. In some ways, like distortion and bokeh, the Sony actually performs better. In terms of pure photographic potential, the Zeiss is superior. But for anyone who wants to go handheld at night, or record handheld video often, the optical stabilization in the Sony makes it a marginally better lens. Both the Sony 35mm and Zeiss 32mm are great lenses, with different attributes to each.

Verified Purchase
I bought this lens to be my kit lens on a Sony A6000, which I bought body only. I love primes and have been shooting with them for about eight years. The Sony is my first foray into mirror-less CSC's. I love the build quality and the rubberized focus ring. I also love the 48mm(equiv) focal length. I have a Voigtlander Ultron 40 which I use on my D700 and it is surprising how useful the 40 mm focal length range is being between the classic 35's and 50's.
This Zeiss glass is lovely. I have seen comparisons ad nauseum considering softness here or there, or the over sharpness of the bokeh etc etc etc.
What is lost in all of this is that premium lens manufacturers such as Zeiss have decades of experience in producing lenses that give up sharpness and micro detail here or there on purpose for they are designed with what I call "painting" in mind. They are produced for their signature "look." This is obviously quite subjective. You like the look or you don't.
As far as bokeh is concerned, I've found that background selection is a major part of OOF smoothness no matter what lens one is using.
This Zeiss Touit is so nice that I am buying one for a Fujifilm X E2 that I have ordered.
I will not give up my D700, but mirrorless cameras have come far enough to strike my fancy. And the Zeiss Touit is a worthy companion and worth every penny.

This Lens is really a Five Star Lens ! Last October I spent Three Days at Gettysburg and Antitem Nation Battlegrounds ! I used this Lens on My Sony Nex 7 Body ! Sheer Perfection in both Imagery and when I was successful , with some instances of " Bokeh " ! I exposed over 450 Images , and the Lens really is without match , in its Class ! Low light attempts were captured , that I thought were beyond My Reach ! The sheer Quality of Build and Design are Very Impressive ! I recently purchased a 32mm Touit in a Fuji X Mount , and look forward to using it , if Winter ever leaves Us here in Snowy N H ! This Lens , in closing , is a Lens to Keep , because it will always Impress You with it's Results ! R E Keay

I am big Zeiss fan, my favorite lenses are Plannar ZM 50/2 and Sonnar ZA 135/1.8, so I was anticipating Touit with great expectations, dreaming of getting most out of NEX-7 24M sensor. At the same time I love Sigma 30/2.8 and Sigma 60/2.8. 30/2.8 is practically glued to my camera, sharp, light but 2.8, so I wanted more. Finally it arrived.

Initial impression - Zeiss, 100% Zeiss. Mechanically - perfect finish, nice touch, solid piece of machinery. Includes hand signed QC sheet. Comes with oversize hood (not a match for 135/1.8 hood but looks impressive anyway).

After mounting on camera and attempting manual focusing, I do 99.99% shoots with manual focus, I sensed strange feeling. Which can be compared to assault's rifle recoil. It's focusing by wire! You turn a ring, camera senses it and activates DC motor. Lens is heavy, so motor must be powerful and it is, as result I am feeling how it moves optical groups. Very weird sense but I can live with it, I am perfectly OK with Sigma's rattling when camera is off, btw Sigma is silent, just plain silent, it is as well focus-by-wire but SILENT!

Image quality - I do not understand other reviews admiring optical qualities of Touit. May be this people never saw that Sigma 30/2.8 can deliver on NEX-7, whatever. For my unscientific eyes, Touit is simply soft till f/3.5, only after it became rather sharp but I want it to be sharp at f/1.8 like Sonnar ZA is super sharp at f/1.8. No need to step down (in Touit case quite a few steps down). I know sharpness is not main thing in photography but I can not use things which do not perform.

So, bottom line - very soft till f/3.5, compare to Sigma 30/2.8. DC focusing motor - simple disappointing, I wish Zeiss just made it manual focus only lens. I would strongly recommend think twice before investing money into Touit. I sent it back.

PS Bokeh - typical zeiss, nice, smooth, I miss it a lot.
