The Sony 28mm f2 FE is not the lens you want if you plan on shooting a lot of urban spaces, but for everything else it is 98% the Zeiss lens for 40% of the cost, less bulk and less weight. Unlike any of the 18mm/25mm Batis samples, my 28mm Sony f2 FE was nicely centered and all corners were even. There will undoubtedly be bad copies out there, but in comparing my copy against a theoretical Batis 25mm with no decentering, the 28mm Sony remains, without question, the lens for most people. The 25mm Batis is a tremendous lens, but its up against a 28mm lens which is probably only this good (at this price) because they may a sacrifice with respect to distortion. Some will scoff at the idea of a lens with such native distortion. Others won’t care and will just make super photos with it!
