1/60 sec f/8 | 25mm | ISO 800

Mark Goldstein has just posted a full review of the new released Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Lens at the photographyblog.com. He highly recommended this “better build and image quality” lens with the best “5 Stars”.  “Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 is a must-have lens for full-frame E-Mount Sony owners.” He also posted several sample images with Sony a7R II.

From the review:”The Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 is a superb wide-angle prime lens. You’d expect sharpness to be high across the frame from such a premium optic, and it doesn’t disappoint. Even with our A7R II test camera shooting 42-megapixle images at high ISOs, detail is exceptionally sharp. Shooting at the maximum f/2 aperture does reveal a minor reduction in sharpness, but this is resolved by f/2.8, and even at this aperture the lens is able to produce beautifully smooth bokeh.….

Zeiss Batis 25mm F2 and 85mm F1.8 lenses are now out of stock in most US stores. It is expected to start shipping in August 2015.
