Allan Weitz (test here) conclusion is:
Though my personal lens preferences lean toward wide-angle lenses, the slightly wide-angle PoV, combined with the 40mm Batis’s ability to focus closer than your typical normal lens, made my time with the Batis 40mm f/2 CF a creatively enjoyable experience.
Lisa Beaney (test here) conclusion is:
From the testing I’ve done this lens is very sharp (not a scientific measurement, just from using it and looking at the images !)
