Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Image Gallery
March 23rd, 2018
The very first Sony FE lens that I reviewed was the, ironically, the newest lens in the Batis line for Sony FE (full frame E-mount). When Zeiss approached me about reviewing the Zeiss Batis APO Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 lens, I actually had no way of doing so as I didn’t own any Sony bodies. B&H Photo bailed me out by loaning me an a7R2, which allowed me to also do a mini-review of that camera as well. While I didn’t take the plunge to purchase the a7R2, some of the positives of that experience translated into serious interest when the Sony a7R3 was announced, and, after reviewing that camera to death, I made the decision to purchase one for myself. One thing I knew after that experience with the Batis 135mm; I was seriously interested in the Batis line if I ever added Sony to my own kit. That interest certainly didn’t go away. So, when I knew that I would be visiting the Shenandoah Mountain region in Virginia along with making a trip into Washington, D.C., I reached out to the great people at Zeiss North America, and they hooked me up with a couple of Batis loaners – the Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon T* (featured here) along with the very slightly smaller little brother, the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon T*. I decided to look at the two wide angle Batis options at the same time so that I could compare and contrast them for myself…and for you. I’ll be sharing my findings soon, but, in the meantime, I’ve got a lot of great photos from them to share with you from the Zeiss Batis 18 f/2.8. Stay tuned for my final review!
