Our Take on the ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens for Sony E:
ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens has a planar optical design that includes two aspherical and two low dispersion elements. The full system consists of 14 elements in 11 groups. The design brings down all sorts of aberrations and distortions to a minimum and produces accurate results with good color delivery. While the aspherical elements control spherical aberrations, the partial dispersion elements manage the chromatic aberrations and color fringing. Besides, there is also a floating elements system for consistency in image quality for the entire focus range. The unit works excellently for the close-up of objects with a minimum of a 5.9-inch distance. It has a 75 mm equivalent focal length for 35 mm considerations.
An anti-reflective coating makes the ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens faithful to color and suppresses flare and ghosting when used in an ambiance with higher levels of lighting. In a low lighting situation too, it performs well with the f/2.8 maximum aperture size. It has a minimum aperture of f/22. With its exceptional photo quality and outstanding features, it is a unit much loved by photographers looking for capturing macro images and videos. Though its design is especially for APS-C, one can also use it with full-frame cameras. You get a picture cropped for a 75 mm lens equivalent.
A DC motor is present in the ZEISS Touit 50mm f/2.8M Macro Lens system for capturing stills and videos using an autofocus feature. It works fast and silent and helps provide accurate results. And if you prefer focusing manually, there is a manual focus mode too.

It gives better precision compared to fully manual lenses. The lens unit dimensions are 2.95 x 3.58 inches and it weighs light at 290 grams.
