Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF User Reviews

Announced Sep 27, 2018 •
Macro prime lens | Sony FE

Hi there I just got a batis 40 yesterday and I noticed that the AF for video is audible when I view through the viewfinder and clearly audible when I close my ear to the side of lens. Does anyone who own this noticed this as well. Is it normal behavior or should I return this. Really appreciate your response and don't want to be stuck with a faulty lens. I managed to capture 2 videos. Let me know if this helps. https://s.amsu.ng/42UVWWnGDVNN https://s.amsu.ng/JPHPBsRJyDcN Thanks

I recently purchased this lens. Easy to take close-up shots and have a unique color of ZEISS lenses. When taking landscape pictures, you can see the strong contrast unique to ZEISS lenses. I like this lens

I have this lens with v2 of the firmware. It is wonderful in all aspects. The colors and sharpness are stunning and true Zeiss-like. I've tested it both near-macro and distance-shots and they are all equally perfect. Moreover the FL is very useful better than standard 50mm.

Low or normal light doesn't seem to be the principal issue, but 90% of the time it works. Landscapes - or more accurately when wanting to focus on infinity - this lens hunts, backwards and forwards it tries but it never 'locks' - not ...
