We don’t yet know what the eight new FE lenses Sony plans to unveil by 2016 are, nor will we for a while. But in the meantime, Zeiss is doing their part to help build up the list of native FE lenses with their new Batis line.

Kicking off the Batis line are the new 25mm and 85mm prime lenses, which are expected to begin shipping mid-July. DigitalRev has managed to get their hands on the Batis lenses prior to their release and took a break from their usual shenanigans to put together a great overview and mini-review of the two lenses.

This should be timed perfectly, with the a7R II coming is August; these lenses are sure to shine on that new body. I am incredibly excited to get the two lenses in for review and give them a good test on my A7 II. They look to be exactly the perfect lenses, as Kai mentions in the DRTV video, to compliment my FE 55mm F/1.8.

You can still get your pre-orders in on the 25mm and 85mm Batis lenses over on B&H here. You can also pre-order the a7R II now, here.
