Top 10 wide-angle prime lenses:
Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 vs. Zeiss Distagon T 25mm f/2 vs. Zeiss Loxia 2.8/21
Conclusions for DxOMark:
the new Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 will be a desirable lens for many Sony FE landscape, architecture, and street photographers looking for an optically-strong wide-angle solution.
The Batis is still outstandingly sharp, however, and offers a faster maximum aperture with better light transmission, as well as marginally better results for vignetting and chromatic aberration than the Loxia 2.8/21. All in all, the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 is a champion wide lens and that’s why it currently sits at the top in our database.
