Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 G vs Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8
2

While waiting endlessly for the Batis 85mm to finally ship I purchased the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 G. Not to use so much for macro but as a portrait lens since I do a lot of portrait work.

Well B&H shipped my 85mm today so early next week I should finally have it and will of course compare it right away to the 90mm. I'm interested in comparisons others might have done between the two.

I might consider keeping both and sell of the macros I have for my Canon system. My original plan was to use one of those adapted EF mount for macro work but gave in and got the 90mm for my A7RII because I wanted AF for portraits. As many have reported the 90mm is a great lens but how do the two compare? I'd like to hear your thoughts.  Thanks.
