New Zeiss Batis news roundup: User reports doens’t read manual and complains about the OLED screen :)
The very first user review at BHphoto (Click here) is negative because the user didn’t get it how to use the manual :). He writes:
“I just received Zeiss Batis 85mm. Well, the OLED just stopped working. I am returning it. So so disappointed.”
But as our reader Aldro noticed this is not a fault on the Zeiss lens:
Something tells me that guy didn’t read the manual. I had mine ‘die’ on my first day of my hands on review too. It didn’t die. I just turned the focus ring too far and somehow the setting switched it off. You can configure the display by turning the focus ring very far. It’s described in the manual.
ThePhoBlographer posted a first impression review:
“So far, we’re really liking the image quality that this lens can deliver. But we have a lot more testing to do. Autofocusing with this lens seems to be the way to go over manual focusing in the current weather conditions as we stated earlier.”
A beautiful lens that without a doubt will sell very well. It’s beautifully designed both inside and outside. It’s tack sharp wide open from corner to corner, suffers from little distortion (without lens profiles for LR) and little CA.
