Zeiss Lenses Batis and Touit are en route!
I'm excited and nervous about the challenge I've issued myself for this week's trip to Norway and Iceland. I want to see what it would be like if I only brought prime lenses to capture the beauty of both countries during the midnight sun season.
Thankfully, my friends at Zeiss are more than happy to enable this challenge and are providing me with both the 25mm f/2 and 85mm f/1.8 Batis lenses for the Sony a7 system along with 12mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/2.8 Macro. While the Touit lenses are rated for cropped sensor bodies, I'll still get an 18mm focal length on the full frame a7, which is more than sufficient for my needs.
Now... as with any good challenge, there is a cheat involved. Because Zeiss lenses for Sony cameras only go to 85mm, I am going to bring the Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM II with me, because we're expected to visit areas with puffins and I don't want to disturb them by getting too close. But, for all intents and purposes, I'll be sticking to these four prime lenses.
As +Larry Page
often says, I'm uncomfortably excited!
Let me know if you've got any questions about the lenses. I'll be putting together a mini review as soon as I get a chance to use them. #SonyAlpha #Zeiss #Batis
