ZEISS Batis 2.8/135 – Review by Andy Westlake
ZEISS Batis 2.8/135 Review: Introduction
ZEISS is one of the grandest old names in all of photography, having been making optical instruments since 1847. Its current range of lenses consists of top-quality fixed focal-length primes that are divided into curiously-named families depending on the type of camera they’re designed to fit. Here we’re considering the Batis 2.8/135, which is the fourth in its range of autofocus lenses for full-frame mirrorless Sony A7 cameras, following on from Batis 2.8/18, Batis 2/25 and Batis 1.8/85. Of course the lens can also be used on Sony’s APS-C mirrorless bodies too, on which it will give a field of view equivalent to a 200mm lens on full frame.
