Pros: Sharpness, focus screen, fast and performance, brightness, closed diaphragm star, tropicalization, lens construction quality

Cons: I would say none, but I'll say a few small flares at night and finally just the fact that like all sony and zeiss lenses if you're at 42mpx at f/13-16 you're a bit already in ffraction but little stuff. it would be nice if the voigtlander didn't suffer from anything.

Opinion: Big lens, used by me on both Sony A7r II, A7 III and A7r III. Sharpness is its strong point, followed by the overall quality of the lens and the performance autofocus. very bright lens, not like so many lenses that on paper are declared f/2.8 and then maybe they are not. I'd buy it over 100 more times, and I'm never going to walk away. I captured my most beautiful landscapes with this lens.

Pros: Everything, sharpness, compactness, weight, field curvature, chromatic aberrations, autofocus, construction, in short, love at first sight.

Cons: It definitely does not have an affordable price but few times I have seen such quality in such a small lens.

Opinion: This is the first opinion I write about Juza. I've been trying, in these months, targets for the Sony FE system, so far I have used my Canon EF via Sigma MC-11 adapter and now I want to reduce weights and clutter starting from wide angles, last week I took the Sony FE 24 f1.4 GM which is very nice and sharp but my and Just think I was suffering from a high field curvature on the right of the frame, returned to the sender and bought a new one on Amazon that I still have to get there, then I took a Laowa 15 F2 Zero-D, built very well but, compared with the Zeiss 18 f2.8 Batis , it looks broken. The Zeiss was love at first sight, I admit that it has a strange shape, very flamed, unusual, but it is well built, well balanced on the A7RIII, autofocus fast and silent, the LED tuner is not bad, a touch of modernity that can come in handy in the dark, apart from the Focus Ring The rest is all metal and therefore cold as ice these days but sharp as a blade. Few lenses have made me do wow (speaking of the "full Frame" format) as I hail them, I know the FE 16-35 F 2.8 GM is much appreciated but I really wanted something compact and this Zeiss is. See all that detail up almost to the edges even at f2.8 (and up to F 6.3, at F8 you begin to see the effects of diffraction) in a weight of 330 grams well it's not a little thing considering how big and heavy the Sigma Art For example,. Beautiful and Costosetto, but it is a little guy with a nice character, vignette a bit ' to all opening me nothing dramatic, chromatic aberrations present but contained, the Sony 24 GM I found it slightly worse in this regard but, to tell the truth, the Batis I have not tried it yet in with Troluce and in areas of high brightness, the distortion is present but nothing excessive for a wide angle, indeed, I've seen worse. You have to keep in mind that it is really small, weighs little and does not have a protruding bulb lens as it is fashionable in recent years and is therefore easily filterable. Only flaw for me? The lack of a second ring as for the GM lenses to control the aperture aperture or a customizable button but I'll survive. I would have preferred a 15 mm type Distagon and if, by chance, they will also make a 12 or 14 mm version I will put in the queue to buy it and if the Sony 24 GM continue to give me the same problems as the first I tried I throw absolutely on the Batis 25 F2 and so many greetings. This 18 mm I love it already. Wonderful, worth every euro that costs! Loved.

Pros: Exceptional sharpness, size, Flare management, noiselessness AF, field angle

Cons: price, sometimes excessive distortion

Opinion: I purchased this wide angle lens intrigued by the various reviews online views, but mostly for the size and weight really contained. It is eloquent right from the start that you have something extremely "premium" in your hands, the assemblies are extremely cured and the ring is soft and it is easy to make perfect MAF thanks to the OLED display that displays the Distance. It is an extraordinary lens: exceptional sharpness, angle of field and management of the Flare are his battle horses while with regard to the distortion I find that sometimes it is a bit too excessive (nothing serious, with Photoshop with the appropriate profile and some Another adjustment is always the quadra). It is to date a lens that I recommend for landscapers but also for interior photographs, perhaps the only lens that could make me change my mind is the Sigma Art 14 1.8. Last but not least the price: it is a lens that only on the used one enjoys an attractive price: it is possible to find specimens with €900, while on the new one must reason on double the digit.

Pros: Sharpness across the frame, ac absent, lightning-fast and accurate Af, Zeiss colors, lightness, price, flare, what are they?

Cons: don't have it, find in used ... Ma chi lo venederebbe?

Opinion: I am using this wonderful lens on my A7r3 with enormous satisfaction for a while and I can only praise him. I switched recently to Sony, before I had Nikon d850, and the obsessive search of a wide angle was killing me. I couldn't find never the quality I was looking for and I was satisfied (so to speak) of the tamron 15-30. Since I switched to sony I took for the Batis 18 on the advice of 3 friends who are from before me in Sony and they always thank her. I have to say, has it all. quality, lightness, screw, flare, and distortion filters is not received, Ac absent. a gem, worth much more than what it costs. and then the colors and quality Zeiss lenses are seen in all respects. I hope strongly in a version of wide type 14 mm of this gem, putting obviously. 10 + to this wonderful lens.
