The manual-focus Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 is here pitted against its cousin, the autofocus Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar.

This scene is outstanding in offering extremely fine details across the frame and corner to corner, so much so that the 28 megapixel images are huge at nearly 13MB each (hard to compress with so much detail)—be patient with downloads.

Shootout: Zeiss Loxia 85/2.4 vs Batis 85/1.8: Lundy Canyon Beaver Ponds (Sony A7R II)

Includes images up to 28 megapixels and large crops, from f/2.4 through f/11 for both lenses.

The first hard freeze of November followed a week of temperatures about 20°F above normal. This valley area dropped to the 14°F range the night prior; this is early morning and it as hard to keep my hands warm..
