ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Sony-Zeiss 16-35 f4, which is also a great lens, but the Batis is just that little bit better, and that already from f2.
price paid:approx 1340 Euro
positive:Stunning sharpness, color, Zeiss pop. Handling, look.
negative:Nothing, really. I have the impression that the led display is not so accurate at long distances, but I have it on only for the rare occasions that I focus manually, so it is of no consequence to me.
comment:Another wonderful Batis. This collection exhausts superlatives.
