Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8 for Sony E Mount Rolling Review - Sony A7RII Camera Rolling Review. - Insights from Fashion Photographer, Eli Samuel of Samuel Vision.

Thinking face ha lol..... Zeiss Batis 85mm F 1.8 Lens for Sony E mount unboxing - Insights from a fashion photographer. 

I just received this baby in the mail today, I replaced the Sony 90mm Macro f2.8 G Master. 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.

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

I will update once I shoot with this lens again and see how it goes. Super excited!


Keep Shooting. 

Much love,

Eli Samuel.

A Little About Me. #bio #nerd #aspiration

My name is Eli Samuel and I have been a photographer for over 10 years. I think I may have come out of the womb holding a camera! Lol, I have shot most kinds of photography including pictures of family, strangers, events, street life, weddings, studio portraits, concert images, and friends, though I prefer to shoot fashion so I founded SAMUEL VISION to service fashion/editorial and corporate advertising. 

In my heart and if you know me, I am a little nerdy. I am a “photo enthusiast” as well as a passionate photographer. Blogging is my way of giving back. I read all the posts published by our heroes in our industry every day like Steve Huff, Ken Rockwell etc.  So 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. 


SAMUEL VISION - Excellent imagery for your brand.
