Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar

Vignetting for Zeiss Batis 85/1.8 Sonnar

Vignetting to the extreme corner area is 2+ stops at f/1.8 without correction, and about 1.25 stops with correction. Since vignetting is also a creative tool, it’s not necessarily wise to correct it in some cases.

Vignetting correction is potentially worrisome for gradient transitions (particularly for complex colors), but if the camera does the correction in 14-bits internally (before the Sony 11+7 lossy compression file is saved), then it should nearly always be just fine.
