Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Sony 85mm f1.4 G Master Lens (11 of 11)ISO 4001-30 sec at f - 2.8

All images by Jason Lanier. Used with permission.

For a little while now, photographer Jason Lanier (who is a Sony Artisan) has been working with both the Zeiss 85mm f1.8 Batis lens and the new Sony 85mm f1.4 G Master. Lots of folks are asking which one is better. Recently, he asked if I’d like a couple of samples. Knowing that you guys wanted to see these, I happily obliged.

Here are some samples that he’s got recently. For editorial neutrality’s sake, these images were SOOC and sent to Lightroom to be resized with minor adjustments. Take a look for yourself and make your own judgements.

    This lens is truly impressive, but I’ve seen some seriously ugly pictures coming out from early adopters. The top ones are fine, but I’m just saying. YOu still need to think about the damnn background with a fast lens.

    Was a custom WB set for each lens. The Batis looks blue.

      Zeiss ALWAYS looks blue, magentish… Zeiss can never hit the correct colors.

    Batis = cat’s eyes bokeh ? It seems, and I love it.

    Well there is certainyl a color difference. I can’t tell which is more accurate but this Zeiss seems to have a touch more saturation. dosn’t make it right or better, just different

        Everything is blueish/magentish with T*

        I hate my FE55 1.8.

        Sony give us your FE50 1.8!

      I don’t understand why they don’t just give us an all-in-one. Now I have to decide between brilliant contrast with the 24-70 f4 zeiss, vs the GM 24-70 f2.8 & its creamy bokeh. WHYYY do I have to choose D’:
