Btw for Loxia folks that have issues with aperture rings being a little too close to the camera mount. I at least solved that with a slip on device that goes on the ring and makes a Leica like tab on it. There cheap 10 dollars but my bet it fit the 35/50 very nicely too, I have one on my 21. Yes it covers up the aperture numbers on the lens but you can see your values in the LCD or EVF anyway. Plus you can always count. Old school trick of counting aperture stops.

See if I can find that link. I think itís called Tabb

Iím using the mini on the 21. They stretch on

Just my take on Loxia and Batis as I have had everyone of them, donít tell my wife. The only exception is the Loxia 85.

Loxia 21 is probably the best wide angle in look and detail. Killer lens if you like manual focus but I do need that Tabb I just talked about

Loxia 50 just a really nice lens thatís really good stopped down a bit

Loxia 35 just not great wide open so itís a 2.8 lens just get used to that

Batis 18. You want AF in a wide this is it but my 12-24 did beat it. Tough call here

Batis 25 another great lens but to damn close to the Loxia 21 another tough call on AF/MF preference

My biggest issue with Batis lenses is the manual focusing. It just has no feel to it.

The Batis 135 I absolutely love and the MF on it is a little tighter so not as loose feeling as the others.

Batis 85 is a tough one to decide on as on one side you have the look of the GM 85 and on the other the Sony FE at half the cost thatís really close to it in look. Problem here is copy variance on the Sony. I got really lucky as I have a outstanding copy of the Sony. Here itís the lottery . But itís also the place where you can save some funds for other glass. Letís call it the cheating zone

Let me add I never seen price reductions like this on Loxia and Batis glass. So seriously all kidding aside itís a great time to jump on them. Screw everyone elseís Christmas presents , itís your turn. Lol

Just do it but wait for my baseball helmet that Iíll send you after you break the news. Lol

Seriously though if you did not buy the GM 70-200 than I would seriously consider the Batis 135 over it any day of the week. One I think it fit you better and it will smoke just about anything out there. Plus you can keep your back feeling pretty good until you hit my age. After 40 years of this stuff I have no back left. My passion is golf and itís pretty hard on me. I come from the world of

Ha! I take your point but I love the 70-200 too much. I also need the zoom for field work. But I may jump in to a bundle and invest in the flak helmet as well
I have gotten used to the weight of the GM zooms but you've reminded me it's time for yoga

Guy - these Batis deals are incredible. I'm buying back the Batis 18 for the 3rd time - i keep selling it because i think i don't normally like to shoot that wide and when i look at past trips, it gets used a ton!

i think that for wide-angle AF / Prime shooters (not sure if there are many of us) the Batis 18 is just a pleasure to use (super light weight and balances perfectly on the a7 series).

I almost want to buy it just to save the money. I have the 135. I would need two helmets if I even dreamed of pulling this off. Lol

Yea the 135 is the best of the Batis no question. Be nice if you could spilt that up with a friend. Getting the 135 plus filter for 1700 is a steal. Whatís funny since release I said 1700 is the correct market price or it

There was a sale on all Zeiss glass in Sweden during the weekend, everything at 25% off, even Otus. I almost pulled the trigger on the Batis 135 but it is still too much money for my low usage. I still have the Zony 135/1.8, so Iím good anyway. I bought a Loxia 50 to complement my 21. Another 50... just what I needed...

Edit: Deal is still ongoing if anyone from the nordic countries is interested:

Ordered the Batis 135 from Adorama on Thursday and it was just delivered! I noticed the packaging is much better secured now that they were several months ago. They listened to their customers.



You have NO idea how happy this has made me!! Thank you so much for sharing....

Good deal on a Loxia kit from B and H as well. All four with accompanying 52mm UV filters and handy carrying case for $4376, previously $5414. At least I think thatís a good deal right?

Its $100 cheaper at adorama if you bought the 3 lens bundle + 85mm + 4x zeiss uv filters.

If it came with the case also at BH then it would be way better.

The question is, how many sets do you need to buy to get four properly centered lenses?
