Here is an additional coverage for the Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF FE lens including first reviews, samples and videos. Designed for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras the bright prime optic offers auto focus, and covers the full-frame sensor.
The lens is weather-sealed, making it suitable for use in a variety of conditions and has a metal construction. It is called CF – for Close Focus, and offers focus as close as 24cm with 1:3.3 image scale – this is much closer than other prime lenses. As a Batis lens it also has an OLED display for DOF information.
The price of the new ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF is $1,299 US (B&H Photo / Adorama). This is the fifth lens in the series. Check out all the Batis lenses at major stores for availability (B&H Photo Video | Adorama | Amazon).
Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF Lens Reviews
From ephotozine :
“Quality, lack of compromise and elegance of design. These are the things that characterise the new lens, one which I have found very exciting to use. It also does not fall into the trap of being clinically sharp without having that indefinable character. It manages to be crisp and clean in terms of its images, but they also have the sparkle that gives that emotional element. Sometimes this is referred to as “pixie dust”, the magical extra ingredient that makes great lenses. Thus the new Zeiss Batis 40mm f/2 CF lens justifies its price tag and it has that extra quality that makes it an Editor’s Choice.”
