I've just purchased the Batis 135/2.8 lens again! I missed it too much.

I can understand that well. The B135 is a real gem that has truly surprised me.

Great news! Can you elaborate on what exactly was it that you missed? Predominately convenient size and weight? Contrast?

And: What will you mainly use it for?

What?? I started an image thread for the Batis 135/2.8 because we didn't have one. I've used it since it was announced.

Yes, I just got the 135/1.8 GM and that's why I sold the Batis.


Oh, I just found out that you also have/had(?) the 135 GM. May I ask whether you will keep the GM as well? Interesting move!

When I look through some of the images captured with this lens, it strikes me as an all-around 135mm lens with autofocus. Essentially, it's flawless in terms of resolution, contrast, and aberration control, yet it still manages to remain fairly compact and light. This lens could be my go-to telephoto solution, as I could use it for everything, including sports in good light and portraits with some post-processing to dial down some of that perfection.

And it has OSS! It's been somewhat overshadowed by new shiny objects, but it really is a marvel of a lens.

How's the sample variation of this Batis?
(or did you simply repurchase what you sold? )

I will get it today but my experience is great in regards to copy variation. I believe I tried at least 3 copies and they performed similarly and were all centered.

I just received the Batis 135/2.8 and took it for a walk around the neighborhood today. Honestly, I regret selling it in the first place. I adore its ability to control color aberration and its high contrast, along with its pleasing rendering. The lens is so well corrected that it has a character of its own!

Focusing is so quiet and the lens' image stabilization helps a lot. I've forgotten how light it was even with the hood.

Here are a few images from my walk today:

Good showing! Welcome back. Of the Zeiss Batis, the Batis 135 is IMO, crème de la crème.

The re-emergence of this thread made me remember how much I like this lens. I'll have to bust it out again soon...
