About this item

    This fits your .
  • Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
  • VERSATILE FULL-FRAME LENS: The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers.
  • EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND HIGH CONTRAST: Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light.
  • ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF METAL CONSTRUCTION: Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use.
  • INNOVATIVE OLED DISPLAY: For the first time, you can accurately read the focus distance and depth of field simply and intuitively on the OLED display on the lens. Especially in poor light conditions - excellent readability is always guaranteed.
  • SMOOTH AND RELIABLE AUTOFOCUS: The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent lens for astrophotography
By Erick W Erickson on July 16, 2017
I use this lens at night to take pictures of the sky. I have a Sony a7rii, which has the star eater problem. This lens renders the stars so sharply that it has mitigated the problem with the camera thinking they are hot pixels and erasing them. I took it out to Sedona last month and got absolutely gorgeous shots with it at night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary Zeiss look just pops straight out of my SONY E Mount Full Frame Cameras
By William Chiu on February 22, 2019
Used this lens extensively with a Sony A7M3 while in Japan for two weeks. The JPEGS straight out of the camera was vivid with perfect contrast looking as real as the beautiful Osaka countryside. The famous Zeiss look is real, with 3D dimensionality that just pops on the screen as well as on prints. Not a whole lot of editing is needed. If you need sharper prints, simply adjust your Sony A7M3 or others with the sharpness settings. I set mine to +2, why bother with Photoshop when you are on vacation. I highly recommend this Zeiss Batis 25mm F2. The AF is spot on as well, for those who care about autofocus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Lens I use on my A7II
By Nicholas on February 14, 2019
This is honestly the only lens I use on my A7ii. I have the kit lens that came with it but never have a need. With that said I mostly shoot landscapes but it also does good general and psuedo-macro pictures!
This lens takes excellent landscape photos in particular. Just about everything is in focus, and if you use peaking sometimes your whole screen will be colored on a huge shot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp - For Pixel peepers!
By Sarah Kozak on March 19, 2018
My absolute favorite lens! This was my first - fastest and sharpest lens - (which made it so I could not accept any less for any other lens!)

I bought this for portraits, and it has worked beautifully! It is tack sharp and gives me smooth bokeh (although its not round, it is football shaped)

I have also used it for nature photographs and it still impresses me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lens for portraits, medium range/telephoto and even landscapes
By A.Grande on November 5, 2018
First off, I'm a newb at photography. I've used some disposable cameras, used my dad's P&S for a day or two, played around with a Canon Powershot S60 back in the day, and recently tried using a Nikon D5300 for a month or two. I didn't know how to use Photoshop until around the time I started taking photography somewhat seriously.

I'm giving you my experience as a person learning how to shoot and use Photoshop from nearly 0/100. At the moment, I'd say I'm 15/100. Got this lens and the Sony A7III about 4 months ago.

When the lens was delivered, I was super excited to finally have a proper set of lenses (25mm, 135mm Batis and a 50mm manual Loxia) to fool around with on an A6300 from my partner's job and the results were great on the APS-C camera. Compared to the kit lens that she brought home from work, the Zeiss had better colors, better low-light performance/less grain, better bokeh due to the larger aperture. We finally got the A7III and I started taking it out everywhere.

But, let me rewind to the moment I got the lens out of the Amazon box.

The packaging feels so premium and protective, I almost want to put the lens back in it every night. Getting the lens out and holding it in my hands left a major impression. I definitely gulped taking it out of the foam. I'd never held a lens that felt this premium in my life and the weight and solid feeling gave me a sense of quality. Compared to the Nikkor lenses we also own, the Zeiss makes me feel as though dropping it would destroy it. Whereas the Nikkor lenses feel like they could take the drop and be fine. Not sure if it's because I know we paid $1000+ vs $500 or the materials or both. The lens hood slips on pretty easily and can take a bump and a fall (oops).

Using the lens was a bit of a challenge at first. I had an idea from reviews and using a telescope I'd need to stand back a decent bit. In tighter spots, like a small museum, home, or studio, it might be a pain to use and a 50mm or maybe 85mm might be a better choice so you can stand closer to the subject. Where this lens works for me is outside. I can shoot gigantic panoramas with the camera setup vertically and grab a lot of the details of buildings. I've shot birds off at a medium range using Super35 mode to get some extra reach and got decent results (a proper telephoto would be better though). Candid, outdoor portraits where you can move around and shoot are pretty amazing. The background melts away in bokeh or dial the aperture down and get a bit more surrounding detail -- it's all very smooth.

Autofocus and auto eye focus is pretty fast (compared to Nikon D5300) and manual focus is decent too, but I wish the ring was more textured. Focus assist and peeking helped me a lot to manually get tack sharp pics with eyes in focus. Can't say I heard any noise from the lens when it was autofocusing at any point.

I can't say for sure if it's worth the price for everyone and it is heavy and yes you would have to stand back more if you're doing portraits, but it is very capable of producing lovely pictures in quite a few scenarios. I'd say skip it if you don't have other, shorter focal length lenses so you can shoot in tighter spaces with less of a hassle. For those that want to do some wildlife, more candid portraits and maybe those crazy detailed panoramas, this is pretty good at those things.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb - better than G master
By George on January 9, 2017
I bought batis and g master (money wasn't an object - I Wanted the best) - compared them side by side and was shocked how good is bats ! theres no CA exist ,Contrast is phenomenal, bloody sharp - sharper than GM at 1.4 -1.6 , same sharp as GM at 1.7 - yet without CA , GM has severe CA at 1.4 and still has a hair of it at 1.7 . I shoot 99% time wide open - so I don't need MUSHY 1.4 - no point to have 2 times chinkier lens to shoot it 1.7 . plus baths slightly faster at focusing , and NO CA at all !!!

I've had Otus - and I must say theres 98% of otus in this Batis !

only downside is vinieting is pretty pronouncing ( not a prob for me I always add it anyway). and it makes warm pics when the GM is perfectly NEUTRAL. - which I prefer more

I left baths returned GM.

theres a pictures - 5000% crop !!
left GM 1.4 then Batis 1.8 then GM 1.6

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy walk around lens for great street and landscapes
By Æ R M on September 29, 2018
I like everything about this product, it’s size, style of the lens, the look of it minimalist design the OLED screen is useful at very selelct times but I keep in on all the time just for the fun of it. The picture quality is amazing, I’m glad I sold my 16-35 F4 Zeiss for this bad boy on my A7RIII. Also the weather sealing of a Batis lens is excellent why wouldn’t you go for a lens with weather sealing it protects your lens and your camera from potential weather damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another BATIS CRACKER
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 20, 2016
What can you say, it’s another cracking Batis lens!

When I moved from my APSC Sony a77ii I decided I was only going to buy the very best glass available to make the most of my Sony a7ii, So far I have the Batis 85mm 1.8, Sony 70-200 f4 and now this Batis 25 f2 and my god I love these lenses.

To make this easy I will break it down rather than tell some long story.

BUILD
9.5/10

There is mixed things about the batis lenses online, however as far as I am concerned they are fantastically designed and built. Yes the lens cap is not th best ever and the hood is plastic, but lets be honest plastic is the best materials for cameras. it doesn’t feel cheap, it feels solid and well weighted, all the batis lenses are well balanced on the a7 cameras, I find the 35 2.8 sony lens way to small and hard to use, although i do always have a grip only cameras. Overall I love the lens/s and can’t fault them… except that bloody rubber grip, it gets so dirty and offends my OCDs. wish it was a metal with a little texture.

OLED SCREEN
9/10

I am glad they went for OLED with this as it does help disability, however its usefulness is down to the user… I think it makes much more sense on a landscape lens like this than my basis 85mm… But overall its a great addition.

OPTICAL QUALITY
9.5/10

Being an f2 and a close focusing distance this is a really versatile lens. Great for low light, close up food photography and full body portraits if needed! the booked is buttery and very nice, not quite as smooth as the 85mm but that is too be expected. Overall this lens is razor sharp, from f2 down to f11 and starts to tail off at f16. Sweet spot I have found is f4 and f11 depending on your need. There is pretty much nothing I would change in this respect and it has that beautiful Zeiss pop that you just can’t explain.

ABERRATIONS AND FALLOFF
9.5

For a wide angle with a f2 apperture aberrations are present in extreme situations, but in general are very very well controlled and are as far as I am concerned a non issue. Light falloff is minimal and virtually gone at f5.6. Distorition is very slight and easily corrected.

OVERALL 9.5

I have attached a few samples and please of ask if you have any questions

5.0 out of 5 stars Hätte nie gedacht dass ein 85er zu meiner Lieblingslinse wird
Reviewed in Germany on December 23, 2016
Eigentlich wollte ich nur das Batis 25 kaufen, aber als ich im September mal wieder auf Amazon den aktuellen Preis checkte konnte ich meinen Augen kaum glauben. Das 85er würde für 785,83€ (Verkauf durch: Camera Centre UK) angeboten. Da konnte ich nicht wiederstehen. Mit Versandkosten aus UK betrug die Endsumme 810€! Samstag bestellt und Mittwoch schon da. Meine Angst, es könne sich um ein Fake handeln war unbegründet.

Ein weiters Bedenken war, dass der AF meiner A7R Probleme mit der geringeren Schärfentiefe des 85ers hat, aber es geht mindestens genauso gut wie am FE55, wenn nicht gar besser. Aufgrund des Kaufs der Batise habe ich seit langem mal wieder die Kamera upgedatet und tatsächlich ist die AF-Performance besser geworden. Natürlich ist die A7R der ersten Generation nicht mit der zweiten zu vergleichen, aber es ist auch nicht so schlimm wie teilweise behauptet. Bei einigermaßen vernünftigen Licht funktioniert selbst der Eye-AF relativ gut.

Bildqualität ist der Hammer
Ich bin bekennender Offenblender und mache mit dem Batis 85 schätzungsweise 80-90% meiner Fotos mit Blende F1.8. Wie beim FE55 ist schon ganz offen die Schärfe und der Kontrast herausragend. Das ist für mich das entscheidende Kaufkriterium für jede Optik. Blendet man noch auf F2.8 oder gar F4 ab bekommt man an Maximum an Schärfe und Kontrast, das so nur ganz wenige Objetive liefern können.

Bokeh
Meiner Meinung nach ist das Bokeh schön weich und ich bin damit sehr zufrieden. Ok, die Bokeh-Balls werden am Bildrand zu Katzenaugen. Das ist jetzt nicht unbedingt mein Wunsch, aber so sehr stören tut es mich auch nicht. Das ist auch gleich mein einzigster Kritikpunkt.

+/-
++ Bildqualität bei Offenblende herausragend
+ Leicht, Klein
+ Verarbeitung
+ Schnell
+ Bildstabilisator

o Preis (ist angemessen, für 1199,- € hätte ich es nicht gekauft, aber heute weiß ich das es das Wert ist)

- Katzenaugen-Bokeh-Balls

Alle beigefügten Fotos sind F1.8. Zwei Fotos sind Bildausschnitte der anderen um wenigstens einigermaßen die Qualität sehen zu können.
