Some more pictures of BEES. This lens really is close to perfect in good lighting.

Some more every day photos—my kid is such a goof while eating. I find myself pretty consistently glad that the 40 is... a 40. Technically, I think 50-65 is more handy outdoors as you still have a "standard" look while getting a bit of extra reach, and 28-35 is a little more useful indoors for the opposite reason. But 40 is right in the goldilocks zone of "literally always fine to live on your camera". It's one of the reasons I'm sure people love the CV 40 1.2 as well. Wish the dedicated photo market were doing better... would love to see this sort of prime on a fixed FL compact.

Thank you for posting these photographs, as I am seriously thinking of making this my next lens purchase to use on my Sony A7RIII.

Do you think we should start a new thread about shooting seagulls with the Batis 40 ?

I have been using this lens a lot since my son was born. I really enjoy manual focus, but for moving subjects the Batis line is really much more convenient.

Here is one from a farm in Virginia where we spent some time in the early part of the pandemic.

Is it just me, or is the pure red CA like you see on the horse there more rare these days?

Great shots you two. Got the 40 for my kid as well. It's pretty baby proof, and while I think the hood is stupidly big... it's unarguably the best protective hood for exactly the same reason. Know more than once my kiddo's attempt to touch the front element has been foiled by that big beefy hood.

It could have been me too, I added a little more red in post for the sunset

Agreed! I'm sometimes tempted by the 50 1.4s, but the Batis 40 is just such a great all-rounder - particularly the ability to close focus to get a slightly different look. (That's typically when my son grabs for the lens!)

Hey, quick question: how does the 40 focus for you in bad lighting on the riv? Notice on my 7iii it kinda gets lobotomized when tracking the kiddo soon as the light goes down. Heard from others on this board it does just fine on the a9/ii, but I dunno if I ever wanna go that high just to get my 40 working.

Also: red CA probably isn't just you. I've seen it on my copy in several photos. I rather like it, due to the fact that when it does show up it's usually very minimal and red seems more less distracting than other colored fringing to me.

The focusing is generally good. The only issue I've noticed is if I have both 1) bad lighting and 2) close focus. So if my ISO starts going over say 2000 and I'm within 1/2 meter I can have misfocus issues. However as soon as I step back or allow more light in the room, the issue goes away.

@wdshuck thanks for the response. Sounds similar to the problems I'm getting with the 7iii, maybe a little less. Can't always boost the lighting enough, so it's definitely an issue. It's a real shame, because low light performance aside this has been by far my favorite lens. I'll have to see what people with gen V bodies think when the time comes, haha.
