The linked article is about the possible death of the "Touit" brand for Fuji cameras. I personally own the Touit 12mm and I'm absolutely satisfied with it. Yes there is that loose aperture ring without a real click-feeling, but for me a lens is about delivering good image quality. And this is a discipline were the Zeiss is shining.
I think that Fuji is doing a great job with their own lenses but there no room for much competition. Only when it comes to the price. But Fuji x-series-shooters are not the ones who look for a cheap bargain.
I can recommend my Zeiss 12mm. It is a great ultra-wide lens that delivers great even wide open. Give it a try after this price drop. You won't regret it.
