Pros: OLED screen, stabilization, flawless construction, sharpness, blurred

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: A lens that fascinates and conquers from the first use. Before it I bought the 40mm f/2 and after seeing the results, I immediately ordered the tele. The 85 mm f/2 is made of solid materials, which give a pleasant feeling of robustness and reliability to the touch. The lens allows you to create well-contrasted images, with bright colors and well balanced. I have no difficulty in considering it as one of my definitive lenses.

Pros: Construction, oled screen for hyperfocal, weight, size, blurred

Cons: Uncomfortable hood, af with little light

Opinion: Taken at a price used to replace the Sony 85 1.8 FE, which however is a slow lady, considered cost and size. Here we are more or less on the same size and weight, with in addition the stabilization and blurred/colors from Zeiss. Pure portraitist, without reaching the perfection of the Gmaster 1.4 (which has its flaws), perfect as long as there is light, then the AF barella and not a little. I love the OLED screen with the hyperfocal calculated in real time, which never hurts. The hood is aesthetically beautiful but uncomfortable to mount and to keep grafted on the contrary, which is no small thing. Do I recommend it instead of Sony? Undoubtedly! Waiting to see how the 85 1.2 Gmaster will be and hoping that they put their hand back to the 1.4 because the AF engine of that lens is a joke

Pros: Good construction, attractive and original design, good colors, weight, af.

Cons: Stabilizer, high cost compared to quality.

Opinion: I used this lens for 3 years and although of "blue blood" it never convinced me to the end. Meanwhile, the stabilizer did not work well with my stabilized bodies, strangely a micro-shake was often generated when it was active (maybe my failed specimen??), and unfortunately, not having a dedicated button on the lens I had to deactivate also that of the sensor from the menu to be quiet, but I had taken it just to have the double stabilization body / lens!!!. LIGHTNING FAST AND ALMOST INFALLIBLE AF, even with little light, very quiet. The rendering of the lens drops dramatically when working in low light conditions, while it is sharp and bright in good lighting. I switched to sigma 85 dg DN, monstrous, and sold it without regret, a lens to which I gave 7 but I was good.

Pros: Construction and sharpness

Cons: Eye AF difficult in low light

Opinion: I have been using the Sony 85mm f1.8 (on A7rIII) for almost a year now. A very valid lens that I find a little soft in TA. I wanted to replace it with the Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8. In the store I tried the AF eye of this lens, f1.8, normal interior lighting, but the AF eye was very difficult at distances of 4/5 meters, while hooking normally and kept tracking at shorter distances. I thought it was due to the light of the interior, and I mounted the Sony 85mm 1.8. Well, the latter, always at f1.8 immediately hooked the eye at any distance. The shopkeeper could only agree with me. I came home with my Sony.

Pros: sharpness, construction, AF, Lack of AC... in short everything

Cons: Senseless Optics

Opinion: Zeiss has produced a masterpiece of Lens: very solid, with a ring of MF that looks like crumed butter (difficult to explain the sensation), excellent sharpness, non-existent AC. I mean, it's a perfect lens, except for one thing... it costs madness and it's f/1.8. Zeiss used to be a stratospheric lens and then said "tié is an optical quality but to use it you must kill, all manual". Now proposes these lenses with absurd constructions, small, autofocus, schermetto style OLED "technology pioneers", but then I'll Square an 85mm with an aperture 1.8. I refuse to spend €1,000 for an 85mm with an aperture f 1.8. The Nikon consideration will pull it over, that Canon too, and the Sony apart from a less prized construction and some more AC is Identical. By the way my specimen had a huge speck of dust in the last front lens. I wonder how it came in, but it was really big, and I was going to contact the Zeiss, but then I sold it. It is not a magic lens, it has no particularities you will remember. It seems to me so much a optics from €300 "best buy", as could be the Nikon 50 1.8 G for nikonisti, simple without many pretensions but super sharp and EXPLOABILISSIMA. Pity that this costs over €1000 NEW. I find it unequal and ridiculous to compare with a Sigma Art 85 or a Canon 85 1.2 L II. Zeiss on this lens as on the 135 mm f/2.8 (a lens like that you buy vintage from €30 and you have with some retouching in PP the same optical quality, but maybe even without) is out of your mind. There is no other explanation, why make an 85mm f 1.8 and make it pay so much by taking care of the construction so much, you must have lost the Reason. If you want to buy it do it, but don't expect it to become your favorite lens.
