Zeiss Loxia 85/2.4 vs Zeiss Batis 85/1.8 vs Sony FE 85/1.4 GM vs Sony SAL 85/1.4 ZA. Battle of 85mm lenses for Sony E Mount – Comparative Lens Review
I tested lenses in the winter, so it was very hard to catch some sun light to check for flaring. I tested all four lenses though on the artificial light sources. All four lenses have great coatings so there is nothing much better that you can buy today in order to shot against light. You should expect some flares in the extreme angles with all lenses, but contrast will always remain very high. This is something that most people wants, but I love sometimes to lose a little contrast and get some flaring as part of creative interpretation of the captured moment. If you are like me, you should have at least one of those legacy single coated lenses in your bag, next to one of those modern high contrast instruments.
