Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF Arrived, Testing it Soon

Get Zeiss Batis at B&H Photo and see my Sony mirrorless wishlist.

The Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF has arrived. At about $1299, its pricing is consistent with the other Batis lenses. Although I am backlogged with the Nikon Z7 system and the Canon EOS R system and my knee is injured, I’ll be covering the Batis 40/2 quite soon.

The Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF (“Close Focus”) is the first Batis lens with macro capability (1:3.3 reproduction ratio). Zeiss has seemingly thrown a great deal of optical chops into the lens design, with 3 elements of special glass and three aspherical elements (one of special glass). Accordingly, I’m little puzzled at how MTF at f/4 never reaches the 80% level, which the Zeiss Loxia lenses easily do (see MTF for the Zeiss Loixa 25mm f/2.4). It appears that total consistent imaging quality over the frame and near to far may be the compromise involved.
