Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar

In my review of Zeiss Batis in Guide to Mirrorless I show just what an outstanding performer the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar is:

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Examples: White Mountains (Sony A7R)

Example images are all up to 24 megapixels in size (with intermediate sizes also).

Both the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon and 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar are must-haves for the serious Sony shooter. I intend to buy my own set along with the new Sony A7R II. I suspect that the Zeiss Batis lenses will be in very high demand just as has been the case with the Zeiss Loxia lenses.

With the Sony/Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon, the 25/2, 35/1.4 and 85/1.8 make a darn nice trio that covers about 80% of what one might need.

Speculating (and no inside knowledge here), I am hoping to see an ultra wide in the 18mm range before too long. That would extend the range nicely. I’d also really like to see an 11mm f/4 prime.

Mono Lake is just to the north of the White Mountains; the rest of the examples are in the White Mountains proper.
