REVIEWED in Depth: the NEW Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon

Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon

Zeiss announces the Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon today.

I had only one week to work with a review sample, but I already have extensive coverage which I think makes a strong case that the Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon is the finest 18mm lens ever to be produced for full frame cameras.

In the Zeiss Batis section of Guide to Mirrorless:

Review of Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon

If you like ultra-wide and you’re shooting on Sony, this lens is a must. Supply may be constrained initially, so pre-order the Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon today.

MTF

Distortion

Note: the Zeiss data sheet for the Batis 18mm f/2.8 on the Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 web page shows the software-corrected distortion graph. An easily-missed footnote that reads 'camera correction “on”'; it is not called out in any way—easily missed. It ought to be part of the graph itself, in red or some such.

Sony mirrorless cameras apply distortion correction to JPEG only, so unless distortion correction is performed during RAW conversion, the results are as shown below in the Uncorrected graph. Distortion correction has implications for sharpness and micro contrast and thus true optical distortion without correction is an essential part of the data sheet.

See my discussion of distortion for Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8, with examples.
