Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar Aperture Series: Golden Reflection (Sony A7R II)

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar

Get Sony A7R II and Zeiss Batis and Zeiss Loxia B&H Photo.

In my review of the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar:

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Aperture Series: Golden Reflection (Sony A7R II)

Includes images from f/1.8 to f/13 at sizes up to 24 megapixels, with large crops also.

It’s really wonderful to have such quality in a small and light kit. The design choice of f/1.8 is absolutely fine (I would even have preferred f/2, just to nudge up the quality slightly and nudge down the size). Particularly for this type of shooting, I’ll take f/1.8 any day over the bulk and weight of f/1.4.

I expect the Zeiss Batis lenses to remain in tight supply for a few months, so order them now. The manual focus Zeiss Loxia line are also very enjoyable, and fill in the focal length gaps.
