As we continue our misadventures on the Sony press trip, we were able to test out the new Zeiss 55mm f1.4 Otus lens a bit on the Sony A7r. Even with Sony’s focus peaking, we found this lens to be incredibly tough to focus when shooting with it wide open. The version that we’re using has an EF to E mount Metabones adapter, and so focus confirmation doesn’t exactly work in the same way that it can with a DSLR. However, we believe that Zeiss should make the lens in an E Mount or A Mount version for sure for better focusing performance.
Here are a couple of quick sample images. We’re going to be working on more later on today hopefully with studio lighting and all. Stay tuned.
AS ALWAYS: the EXIF data is in the file name of the image
