Diglloyd (Click here) is the first blogger having the chance ot test both new Batis lenses. And his first conclusion is unmistakably favorable:
Both the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon and 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar are must-haves for the serious Sony shooter. I intend to buy my own set along with the new Sony A7R II. I suspect that the Zeiss Batis lenses will be in very high demand just as has been the case with the Zeiss Loxia lenses.
Both Batis lenses are now available for preorder in USA and Europe (UK/Germany)
