Zeiss Batis 18/2.8 on the way!
Third to the Batis party, ultra wide-angle from Zeiss, made exclusively for Sony E mount – Zeiss Batis 18/2.8 is coming soon! (May 2016 in the stores)
Unlike it’s SLR predecessor – Distagon 18/3.5 (later Milvus 18/3.5) new Batis is 1/2 stop faster and Zeiss declare excellent sharpness across the frame.
The new ZEISS Batis 2.8/18 is impressive on account of its high image quality across the entire image field. “By virtue of the large diagonal angular field of 99 degrees, this lens is ideal for capturing unique images in landscape, architectural and astro photography and for impressive interior shots of small spaces,” says Dr. Michael Pollmann, Product Manager of ZEISS Camera Lenses.
