this last sets is so great. those greens color contrasting with the all the reds are perfect

i'm shopping to fill out my sony kit again and i prefer these over the 35 gm sets i've seen. the batis images just are very pleasing and lifelike, just the perfect sharpness.

I agree with that. The colors of the Batis almost never need editing. I don't like editing colors. In addition, there is the beautiful, plastic and very lively representation. Yesterday I had the 85/1.4 GM with me again. I really like the rendering of the GM. But in terms of colors, contrasts, and the vivid image impression, the GM is inferior in my opinion. In contrast to the Batis, I often have to edit the skin tones with the GM and am not always satisfied with the result.

That's the Zeiss magic for you! I also really enjoy images from it in B&W.
I often feel like I enjoy the rendering of this Batis 40 over the 35GM, but would enjoy the user experience of the 35GM more. Just goes to show that the perfect lens is impossible to find.

Batis 40 can work very well as a portrait lens as well...

Absolutely gorgeous images.. Its a shame Zeiss seem to have left the camera lens market. It would have interesting to see a line of AF and MF lenses where they go “maximum Zeiss” and serve as alternative to to Sony’s GM line. Below are some suggestions which I’m 99% certain won’t ever happen.

AF (New Otus level line)
40mm f1.2
55mm f1.2
85mm f1.2
105mm f1.4
135mm f1.8

MF (Add to the Loxia line)
28mm f2
58mm f2
75mm f1.4

Well now that they are done making photo lenses, at least we can pick out a lens from each line up for collecting. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Loxia: 21 or 85
Batis: 85 or 40
M Classic: 35/1.4 or 85/4
Contax: 35-70 or 100/2
Milvus: 100/2 or 135/2

I didn‘t know this. Where can I find further information on Zeiss leaving the photo market?

They haven't "left", but they are really phoning it in. Look at their product releases over the past couple of years. There doesn't seem to be new development of lenses for ILC cameras. They are just selling off their portfolio of lenses that were released quite a number of years ago.

I think he just means that they don't seem to be introducing any news lenses recently.

Not officially, just unofficially in our hearts. Looks like their pricing strategy for Loxia and Batis lenses were gutted by Voigtlander and GMs new.
