Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF Aperture Series: View up Bishop Creek, Late Dusk

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

This medium range scene evaluates sharpness, bokeh, color correction, and depth of field gains of the Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF, showing the magnificent performance possible with tremendous detail near-to-far and corner to corner.

The scene is rendered as it felt—cold and pre-winter in very blue mountain light only partly corrected, and also in the dimness of late dusk. It’s a “feel” shot intended to capture how it feels to be there at this pre-winter time of year.

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/2 through f/11.

Wow—sometimes lenses have limiting optical aberrations that do not allow a stellar performance like this to accrue with stopping down. This is one terrific lens. I’d say it is perhaps the best Zeiss Batis yet. At about $1299, it’s worth it.
