Lenstips: Carl Zeiss Batis 40 mm f/2 CF Review

The Sony Zeiss Batis 40 mm f/2 CF isn’t a new lens from Zeiss for E-mount, but lenstips is just getting around to testing the lens and it does not disappoint for the price. 40mm is kind of an odd focal length, but many love it over 35mm/50mm. below you can see some details about the review, but you can read the full review here.

“The Zeiss Batis 2/40 CF is an expensive lens, with a price tag of $1100 but if you want and can spend that much you won’t regret your decision. The tested lens will repay you with a truly sensational image quality.

To sum up in all testing categories the results of the Batis were good or simply excellent. It brushed against resolution records and, basically, had just one flaw. It’s quite enough to award it our editorial office award – a round of applause!”
