Examples: Spring Snowstorm (Sony A7R)

This is a narrative and story more than a lens evaluation; the images speak for themselves as to the technical excellence and visual impact.

Like the Batis 25mm f/2, the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 is weather resistant, and just as critical in rain or snow shooting, its lens hood extends far enough so that with a little care the front lens surface will stay free of water spots. Shoot the scene, then carry the camera with the lens angled down to avoid ingress of rain/snow.

The narrative begins with the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Approaching Spring snowstorm examples.
