Park Picks 2017 Highly Commended: Best Lens

The ZEISS range of Batis lenses really set the Sony E-mount world alight when they initially welcomed in the Batis 85mm f/1.8 and the Batis 25mm f/2.0 lenses to a burgeoning line of optics compatible with Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Whilst perhaps a surprising choice of new focal length considering the 25mm is erring on the side of ultra-wide, this true ultra-wide lens follows in the theme of the Batis range by having a very minimalist feel whilst not abandoning build quality.

The rubber focusing ring has a nice feel to it and the OLED digital distance scale is a nice feature we expect to see popping up on more lenses in the future. The distortion for a lens this wide is laudable, and the aperture makes it a great choice fo astrophotography.

It will feel most at home when shooting landscape, but reviewers have commented on it being a good choice for indoor photography when shooting in low light - meaning it has a nice extra creative element to its use.
