Has anyone had the opportunity to test the new Zeiss 21-100mm (T2.9-3.9) vs Fujinon 20-120mm (T3.5)?

 

Most of my glass is Zeiss, so I'm leaning that way, but I do like having a few more MM pushing me to the telephoto side of things.  I also prefer the constant T-stop of the Fuji.

Either lens, I'd be buying PL mount, no attached motors, so the price is only a $2500 difference (retail).

 

I'm considering both as more of a run and gun zoom for day to day use. 

 

Anyone had any sharpness issues or similar?  Positive or negative experiences?

I put hands on both, but only in their respective demo booths, so no real bench testing or side by side comparison. The online reviews for both seem great, looks like the Zeiss loses the T-Stop throughout the zoom range, pretty consistently after 70mm.  The Fuji drops off a bit in the last few MM of the zoom.

 

 

Thanks in advance for any input.
