ownership:I own this lens
compared to:24-70 Sony-Zeiss f4.
price paid:1140 EUR
positive:Everything, sharpness is phenomenal and so are the colors, microcontrast, pop. Close-up works great and is equally of high quality.
negative:Nothing really
comment:The zoom is often sufficiently good too but there will be situations where this 40mm will probably replace it as walk around lens. The Batis line exhausts superlatives and they are just so beautiful as objects too.
