Mark Goldstein has just posted a full review of the new announced Zeiss Loxia 2.4/85 lens at the PhotographyBlog. This full-frame manual lens costs $1,399 and will start shipping before Christmas 2016.

Conclusions from PhotographyBlog:”The Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 is a pleasure to use, thanks to its superb weather-proof build quality and wide, smooth focusing ring. When manually focusing the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 delivered a very high percentage of keepers thanks to the A7R II’s excellent magnification and peaking features. Vignetting is apparent when shooting wide-open at f/2.4, but quickly disappears as you stop down to f/5.6, while both chromatic aberrations and pin-cushion distortion are very well controlled…”
