First Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Lens Reviews Roundup

Just several days ago, Zeiss announced the new Batis 18mm f/2.8 super wide-angle lens. But four photographers has already published their Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 lens reviews and sample images. According to their test results, the new Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 is amazing and it is really a great E-mount lens. The new Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 lens is designed specifically for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras and now you can pre-order this lens at B&H for $1,499.

David Clifford:

It was an amazingly sharp, well built, weather sealed, fast and accurate auto focus which was a dream to use. 18mm is one of my favorite focal lengths. It’s super wide with minimal distortion. In fact when I was using Canon I picked up a Zeiss 18mm 3.5 lens because my 16-35 was not very sharp at all. I quickly replaced my 16-35 with an 18mm and a 28mm. I felt much better carrying 2 small light fast primes than risking soft shots wide open in late light for clients. With 5 axis image stabilizer and the 42 mega pixel files it’s rivaling medium format for a fraction of the cost. Thank Zeiss for constant pushing to make superior lenses that do exactly what I need.

Christian Dandyk:

Thanks to its large field of vision with extremely low distortion, it’s perfect for architectural photography. The ZEISS Batis 2.8/18 fulfilled a long-held wish he had had for a wide angle with excellent imaging performance.

Diglloyd:

The Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon is the finest 18mm lens ever to be produced for full frame cameras.

Brian Matiash:

All in all, I was exceptionally impressed with the performance of this lens and the image quality it produced. All of the photos I’m sharing today were taken with this Batis 2.8/18 and the Sony a7R II back in January.
