Re: Zeiss Batis Image Thread


I just purchased a Batis 18, f/2.8 on FM. Had one in the past with my A7R3 and loved it. But moved to Sony 16-35 V1 GM. Very happy to be back with the Batis. Small, nice and sharp. Since I have the Sony 24-70 GM-2 which I use often, the Batis is a nice fit.

I found the 16-35 GM-1 was nice but I never used it above 18mm. So giving up the 19-35 was not hard, really only giving up the 19-23mm. And giving up the 16, 17mm was easy also.

The big thing that helped me make this decision, was searching through the last four years of photos on my site based on lens. More Batis 18 shots had been printed big and sold, where only 2 from the 16-35 GM-1.

As for auto focus, on a lens this wide I am 95% manual focus.
