    It looks like a lustworthy lens, Jordan. Thanks for the review, and the samples!

    Great review and photos, Jordan. I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy that lens, although I'm always torn between 85, 100, and 135mm lenses. In the long run, I only need one in that range.

    Sony 135mm 1.8 is an excellent portrait lens with 2.36'~72cm mfd, but it is screw mount af and over 2 pounds close to 1kg plus the adapter. It balances very well, but heavy combination... I don't know if they can adapt that into FE mount unless they go with f2.8 lens and make it smaller/lighter... Batis 85mm is similar size/weight to Fuji/Pana 1.2 options with full frame coverage... They could have made 85mm smaller w/o lens IS but most probably was designed before Sony IBIS, eg early test shots were from last winter... 85mm with apsc crop has 135mm 2.8 equivalence also...
