New Zeiss Batis Lenses Announced. 25mm f2 and 85mm f1.8. Sony E Mount

Cameras

The new 25mm f2.0 and 85mm f1.8 are like baby Otus lenses. They have a similar feel and build quality. I got the chance to check them out briefly and they will be a killer addition to any Sony E mount camera. The digital read out will be great in low light situations and seems to be the future of lenses. These should be great for both stills and motion. News Shooter has them priced at around $1300 for the 25mm and $1200 for the 85mm.
