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.
