ePhotozine tested both batis lenses. About the 85mm lens they write:

The Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 is another lovely lens. The design and handling are a pleasure. The results ooze quality. The OLED display is an innovation that looks to be actually quite useful. The construction quality is impeccable. The only thing not to like is perhaps the price, but it starts to look much better value when pitched against other premium quality lenses. This Zeiss lens certainly delivers the goods for Sony 7 users.

Aand about the 25mm batis they write:

The Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 is just a lovely lens. The design and handling are a pleasure. The results ooze quality. The OLED display is an innovation that looks to be actually quite useful. The construction quality is impeccable. The only thing not to like is perhaps the price, but to be fair it looks as though it’s at the right level for what it is. Sony Alpha 7 series owners have a lens here to aspire to.

Admiringlight also tested the 25mm Batis and writes:

The only real downside to the lens is the price, which at $1,299 US is going to be a steep barrier to entry for many shooters. Still, the lack of readily available stock for the 25mm and its 85mm brother show that there’s plenty of demand for this lens, even at this price. I personally wasn’t quite as enamored with the lens as I was with the 85mm Batis, but I still very much enjoyed shooting with the lens and realizing the quality of images it produces. If you want an excellent wide-angle prime, the Batis 25mm will fit the bill handily. It’s an outstanding addition to the Zeiss lineup and the Sony FE system.

Yep, availability is still not there in Europe and USA. Only Japanese stores seem to have them in Stock and for sale on their [shoplink 42312 ebay]eBay sites (Click here. WWW shipment)[/shoplink] and on Amazon US (Click here).
