In my review of Zeiss Batis in Guide to Mirrorless I show additional examples with the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.4 Sonnar

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Examples: Mary Lake, Mt Conness, Sierra (Sony A7R)

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar

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

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.

The Zeiss Batis lenses are due to ship within a few weeks. My advice is to pre-order Zeiss Batis ASAP as they will likely suffer from the same Unobtanium issue as the Zeiss Loxia line (supply constraints, Zeiss can’t build ’em fast enough).

The Zeiss Batii together with the Sony/Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon make a darn nice trio that covers about 80% of what one might need: 25/35/85 is an excellent range. Fill in with the Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar or the Sony/Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 Sonnar.

Speculating (and no inside knowledge here), I am hoping to see an ultra wide in the 18mm or 21mm range before too long. I’d also really like to see an 11mm f/4 prime and a 16mm fisheye, but these are not hot sellers in general, so my hopes are not high there.
