Zeiss Batis APO Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 Lens Review
So far, Batis 135/2.8 passed with 10 out of 10 stars (if I would have any, which I don’t). Flare resistance is another field where Batis excels. I made tons of images trying to capture some flares before I actually spotted them. It is possible to create flares, it is also possible to get some contrast loss, but only in the very extreme conditions. Normally you can shot directly toward sun, or you can put the sun at the edge of your frame and you will hardly see evidence of flaring or contrast loss. Judge for yourself.
I really needed to force the lens to show its colors. Shooting old Polaroid was a bit like shooting mirror since its edges are highly reflective. That was the only situation where I succeeded in finding some flares…
All images bellow where post processed to our liking. They should not be considered as a merit for the lens pure optical performance, but they should help you to recognize, what can be achieved as a final output.
