It features 14 elements in 11 groups, a precision-engineered full-metal casing, weighs in at 614grams and has an OLED depth-of-field display. The weather-proof Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 also boasts built-in optical image stabilisation and it takes 67mm filters. The Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 officially retails for £1749 / $1999.
