Zeiss’ effort to produce quality primes for the Sony full-frame E-mount system has been remarkable. There are now no fewer than six lenses divided into two separate families (Loxia and Batis) in addition to the many FE lenses the brand has designed for Sony, and we are sure that more will come in the near future.
