More Batis news:
Steve Huff posted that Batis hands-on video:
So there you have it, the new Batis. 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.
Do I need this lens? Not really. My 16-35 is on my A7II 90% of the time and is great for all of my landscape work and offers a great range. I did fall in love with this Batis lens though. It just makes such a great package in combination with the A7II and is just so extremely sharp. I will miss the display on top of my lenses as I was already automatically looking at the top of my 16-35 lens when it was back on my A7II. I like to get creative and from that point this lens is also a great tool. I love primes and I would probably buy this lens in the future. I’m very interested to see how it performs on the new A7RII but it will most probably shine at it’s best on that body.
