Zeiss announced that Firmware Updates are available to support PDAF with Zeiss Touit 12mm, 32mm and 50mm lenses through world-wide Zeiss service centers. Please note: this is a service center update – it’s not possible to perform this update the lenses yourself with a firmware download.

Improvements

Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8 E-mount & Touit 32mm F1.8 E-mount:

An update to firmware version 02 is available for the Touit 12mm F2.8 and Touit 32mm F1.8 E-mount lenses. With this version, the lenses also support phase detection autofocus and the fast hybrid autofocus of newer Sony E-mount cameras.

Zeiss Touit 50mm F2.8 E-mount:

A firmware update to Version 02 is now available for the Touit 50mm F2.8 E-mount. It corrects the following behavior that may have occurred with the previous lens firmware version with particular camera menu setting and in particular situations:

  • Clearly noticeable shutter release delays when pressing the release button with activated flash
  • “˜Hunting’ for the focus point with the camera in AF-C mode
  • All Touit 2.8/50 macro lenses for E-mount cameras ever delivered already support phase detection autofocus and the fast hybrid autofocus of newer Sony E-mount cameras with their proprietary firmware.
