        nope.. not really! too bad the 32 it’s not 1.4..

    Is this lens plastic or metal? I was hoping the unboxing would comment on it. These lenses do look like a very good size compared to what they’d be for a FF DSLR.

      Sorry if we didn’t mention it, but it’s of course a full metal jacket !!

      Nice weight & feel !!!

        not really metal..

        “The mirrorless system cameras are lighter and more compact than SLR cameras. With our new lenses for this camera system we are continue the development of our high quality lens concept while simultaneously aiming at a relatively light-weight design. For the mechanical components we looked for the best compromise between the quality of the material and the product’s total weight. For this reason, we decided to use a combination of materials. For parts that do not require metal for accuracy, solidity or durability, we have incorporated lighter materials such as plastic.

        Best regards
        Carl Zeiss Lenses Team”

    Pity Zeiss didn’t make it 23mm or so, then I’d buy it for sure. As is I don’t see the point of getting these since I have a 35,mm and 14mm already.
