Mark Goldstein has just posted a detailed review of the new released Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Lens at the photographyblog.com. It is a new moderate prime lens designed specifically for Sony Alpha 85mm full-frame mirrorless cameras. He highly recommended this new lens with the overall “4.5 Stars”. “If you’re interested in portraiture, especially in the studio, Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 is a fantastic lens for full-frame E-Mount Sony owners”. He also posted several sample images with Sony a7R II.
Conclusion From the review:”The Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 is an excellent portrait 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-megapixel images at high ISOs, detail is exceptionally sharp. Shooting at the maximum f/1.8 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 and completely blurred backgrounds..….”
Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 lens is now out of stock in most US stores. It is expected to start shipping in August 2015.
