some love for Batis 85mm. Even though 85GM is 1.4 and the new 85mm win budget price, I have no remorse for my beloved Batis 85.

Recently sold my Sony FE 85mm f1.8 and bought the Batis 85mm f1.8. I use my Batis 135mm f2.f8 (which has OIS) for portraits and missed the lack of OIS in the FE 85, plus its bokeh was somewhat harsh with backlit situations, but other than that it was an excellent lens. Took the new Batis out for a shoot and came away impressed.

First shot is at 1/25ss and f2.5 handheld. I would not have been able to get this without the added OIS, at least at base ISO, as anything below 1/60ss with the FE was usually a bit soft.

This one is at f2 and 1/250ss. The bokeh looks great to me, given the backgound is mostly in full sun.
