Get Zeiss Batis at B&H Photo.

In my review coverage of Zeiss Batis in Guide to Mirrorless, I take a first look at portraits with both the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon and Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar on the Sony A7R.

More to come, but the examples published above should give a good feel for the superlative image quality.

You said there was better to come and paid out big. Colour, tones and detail, crisp and just gorgeous. Now where does the end of queue start I wonder?

These will fly off the shelves and the 25mm is no slouch either.

Photography was made for this kind of quality lens.

Well done, how do you beat these shots.

DIGLLOYD: the Zeiss Batis (and Zeiss Loxia) line makes the Sony mirorrless platform much more appealing. But note that where Sony offers a Zeiss design, there will not be competition in that focal.
