Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8 for Sony E Mount Rolling Review - Insights from Shitty Fashion Photographer, Eli Samuel.

I replaced the Sony 90mm Macro f2.8 G Master with the Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8 for Sony E Mount. I have a great love for the 90mm Macro, I have spoken about my observations and opinions on this wonderful lens before but just to recap here is my thought on the 90mm.

Sony 90mm Macro f2.8 G Master.

  • Very sharp, actually too sharp in my view. For what I shoot the bokeh is harsh and feels nervous. It is not a serious problem, I am splitting hairs here but it is why I switched.
  • Super fast focus.
  • Accurate.
  • Lighter than you think.
  • Amazing image quality and colour.

“Very sharp, actually too sharp in my view.” — Eli Samuel.

The only reason that I changed was the out of focus areas, it is super small change but I like the rendition better on the Zeiss. 


Keep Shooting beautiful people! 

Yours creatively always,

A Little About Me. #bio #nerd #aspiration 

My name is Eli Samuel, my passion is to empower artists to bring a little bit more beauty into the world one image at a time. I am a little nerdy, a little crass and an endless chatterbox. Blogging is my way of giving back. I read the posts published by the photographic heroes regularly like Steve Huff, Ken Rockwell etc. I thought to myself, stop being selfish! My dream is to grace the cover of Vogue Italia. I am coming for you Vogue! Help me get there.
