ZEISS Batis 2.8/18
The Zeiss Batis 18mm f2.8 is a super wide-angle lens specifically designed for the latest generation Sony Alpha E-mount mirrorless cameras such as the A7RII, A7s, A7sII and A7 II. The wide 99 degree FOV is ideal for achieving exceptional angles in landscape and astro photography. The latest in the Batis range (which currently includes a 25mm wide angle prime and an 85mm portrait lens) the ZEISS Batis 2.8/18 allows photographers and video professionals to capture stunning quality architectural images with impressive interior shots - even in small spaces.
Much like the rest of the Batis range, the 18mm f2.8 is no different when it comes to absolute image quality and corner-to-corner sharp images. The Zeiss Distagon optical design is one of the best in the world and has been a proven technology for many years.
