Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF Lens Review (EPhotozine)


John Riley has just posted a full review of the newly announced Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF (close focus) lens at the Ephotozine.com.


He tested Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF lens on Sony A7 III and made such a conclusion” Quality, lack of compromise and elegance of design. It also does not fall into the trap of being clinically sharp without having that indefinable character. It manages to be crisp and clean in terms of its images, but they also have the sparkle that gives that emotional element. Sometimes this is referred to as “pixie dust”, the magical extra ingredient that makes great lenses.Thus the new Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF lens justifies its price tag and it has that extra quality that makes it an Editor’s Choice...”
