Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon

MTF for Zeiss Batis 25/2 Distagon

The MTF chart shows modest micro contrast at f/2. According to Zeiss, character of the Batis 25mm f/2 differs a bit from other Zeiss designs in that it is not peaking so high in the center. But the Batis 25mm f/2 has exceptional uniformity across the whole field. This is highly unusual for a 24/25mm lens.

The modest micro contrast wide open at f/2 is due to a mixture of many optical attributes, such as a trace of uncorrected color. Since slight softness can be compensated for by sharpening, the uniformity can be a big advantage in some shooting scenarios.

According to Zeiss, as compared to the Zeiss ZF.2 25mm f/2 Distagon for Nikon/Canon, the Batis 25/2 is superior up to f/5.6 in the edges and corners.
