    How is the stopped down performance (2.8) compared to the Zeiss Loxia 21mm or the Batis 25mm?

    • I didn’t compare them directly but there is very little difference between most comparable modern lenses from f/4 and smaller. You can see that even somewhat older Canon 24/1.4 II is catching up at f/5.6. Since all three are Zeiss lenses, they have same (within the same generation family) coatings and none of those lenses has excessive distortion (Loxia 21, being the widest, suffer probably most from it, but it is still very well corrected). At smaller apertures, vignetting is not the problem either. If you are on the Sony E platform, Loxia has great advantage in size but it is “only” f/2.8, Batis has AF and solid speed at f/2 but in my opinion (very subjective) also most digital/flat rendering and Milvus while optically great, is huge and heavy. I am using Loxia (and Canon TS-E 17) for my work.
