Sony 85mm f/1.8 FE versus Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 at TheCameraStoreTV
TheCameraStoreTV have been in Thailand taking a look at the new Sony 85mm f/1.8 FE lens and while they were there they took the opportunity to put it head to head with it’s closest competitor, the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8, a worthy comparison considering the Sony 85mm costs half the price of the Zeiss unit!
The Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 is one of our favourite lenses for Sony’s mirrorless cameras, so we were surprised to see Sony launch their own 85mm F1.8 last month. On a recent trip to see Sony’s Thailand factory, we decided to shoot out these two great lenses. Is the Zeiss Batis worth paying twice as much for?
