Shootout: Sony 12-24mm f/4G vs Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 (Blue Water Flows Over Dark Rocks, Sony A7R II)

See my Sony mirrorless wish list.

This shootout pits the about $1499 Zeiss 18mm f/2.8 Distagon against the about $1699 Sony 12-24m f/4. It follows the Pescadero Creek, Downstream shootout and this comparison looks much more strongly in favor of the Batis.

Sony 12-24mm f/4G vs Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Shootout: Blue Water Flows Over Dark Rocks

Includes images up to full resolution from f/2.8 through f/13 for both lenses.

Sony is making some good lenses these days, and the about $1699 Sony 12-24m f/4 Ge covers a range that has been very hard to cover. How does it stack up against the about $1499 Zeiss 18mm f/2.8 Distagon?
