BHphoto posted that Zeiss Batis 25mm & 85mm Lenses First Look video. The store also shipped out the first preorders to SAR readers but they are now all sold out. The next Stock is supposed to arrive sometimes in mid August. I guess we will have to be very patient just like it happened with the still not in Stock Loxia lenses.
The Zeiss Batis 25mm is yet another great lens for the Sony FE system. It isn’t perfect and vignetting can be the most annoying thing to deal with especially on the A7r. There is also some perspective and barrel distortion that can be easily fixed in post-production. Otherwise, it provides great sharpness, is perfectly usable at f/2 and has an excellent bokeh rendering when you focus close. It has a fast autofocus mechanism and the OLED screen can be useful for astrophotographers.
Alexander Voss: “Real raw’s from the 7r and the brand new batis. Feel free to share. Best greetings. Alexander https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k3ius8dvwvpd1ca/AAALi78kenwjVcAK1141spuRa?dl=0”
