Matt Granger (Click here) compared the Batis vs Otus 85mm lenses. Of course the four times more expensive Otus lens is a better lens. But how close does the new Batis get to it? Check it out on the video below:
And Mirrorlessons made a Batis 85mm vs 90mm macro vs 55mm f/1.8 comparison:
You will notice that the Zeiss Batis has a smoother bokeh and produces less of a “swirl” effect than the 90mm. But the latter looks good in terms of bokeh rendering too. Both are really sharp. The 55mm on the a6000 does a good job as well. It is slightly less sharp but this is also due to the lower resolution of the a6000. The bokeh is less smooth than the other two lenses but I like its rendering and it remains a more than valid choice for portraits.
