Zeiss posted a new set of images shot on the soon to be announced new Batis tele prime FE lens. The Photographer Irwin Wong said this about the lens:
Great low light performance, which helped when I shot this bamboo grove in twilight.
I can’t tell you too much about it except that it is a telelens. What’s something that we all use telelenses for? That’s right, sweet, sweet bokeh. I think this lens will not disappoint in that regard, as you can probably see from this photo of some plum blossoms.
The lens should be a 135mm lens will the aperture could be f/2.8. But for sure I would be glad it would have a faster f/2.4 or f/2 aperture.
The lens will be announced by end of the Month. If I could guess the date it will be March 21 because usually Zeiss announces stuff on Tuesday. But thats’ just a guess.
“In terms of high ISO noise, the GFX 50S performs fairly similarly to the Pentax 645Z and, as sensor size alone would lead you to expect: better than the Canon EOS 5D SR. However, because Sony’s a7R II sensor uses a more modern BSI design, it’s able to be more efficient, which means it’s able to close the gap to the bigger sensor cameras. “
As I stated many times I think Sony should use the much larger 55x41mm sensor if they ever are going to make a medium format RX or system camera. That should really give us a visible difference in both, quality and esthetic of the images.
It may be a good lens on a Sony A7S (II) but the 42mp sensor of the Sony A7R II is clearly out of its league. The center quality is up to the task but the quality at the outer image regions leaves something to be desired – at all focal lengths. Lateral CAs are fairly decent. The amount of vignetting is low thanks to image auto-correction (which you can’t deactivate). It’s also a good idea to activate distortion correction because the native characteristic isn’t pretty.
Judging the quality of the construction is always a bit tricky but the Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS certainly feels like a well-made lens. It is, of course, mostly made of (good quality) plastics but there are no wobbly parts. The rubberized control rings also operate nicely. It’s even weather-sealed which is unusual in this lens class. The AF doesn’t stand out it’s quite fast and silent. Given the fact that it is a slow lens, the optical image stabilizer (OSS) can certainly come handy in low light scenes.
