"BATIS lenses Shipping 3-4 Months After Order Date" - Zeiss

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Zeiss wasn't exactly forthcoming with my question about availability of the BATIS lenses here in the USA, but at least they cordially responded with a version of "shut up and keep waiting."


Dear Jonathan,


Thanks for your inquiry.


Like with all high-end products, the request for the new BATIS lenses is much higher than the production capacities. Within the next months, the backorders will be cleared in the succession of order income.


The current delivery is around 3-4 months after order income at the moment.


We already shipped many items of the BATIS lenses to the US, which all were directly handled over to the end customers by the dealers.


Please contact your photo dealer directly for an estimated delivery date. Of course, we cannot know on which position your dealer put you on his waiting list.


With best regards

Ihre Anfrage (Absender: ) vom 21.08.2015:


I have both Batis lenses on pre-order from Adorama, since June, and would like to know when I can expect them to ship.  I have been waiting patiently for more than two months now without any word.  Please advise.  Thank you.

      I have an a6000 and am considering upgrading to the a6500, but I'm curious about the stabilization. I know it is in-body, but is it in anyway dependent on the lens being used? Specifically, will it work with third-party lenses? I do a lot of shooting with Tamron's 150-600mm lens (with Sony's LA-EA2 adapter).

      Good morning,
      I've recently got the "Sony a7 III" camera body as a present. I'm a little bit lost when it comes to lenses and I would really appreciate some advice on which lens to get based on my needs (if possible).
      I'm a painter, and once I finish my paintings I take photos of them, whether if it's for posting on art websites to sell them, social media to promote them, etc.
      I also want to make art prints out of the photos I take of them.
      I've recently started filming videos while I paint to show the process and teach other people painting techniques.
      So, to sum it up, I'm looking for quite a versatile lens:
      - Take photos of paintings once they're finished (to post on art websites to sell).
      - Take photos of paintings once they're finished (to make prints out of them. I paint large scale and small scale paintings).
      - To film videos of the painting process.
      I've read that for taking photos of paintings it's better to get a macro lens, but I don't know how that'd work when I need to film videos.
      I also heard a prime lens could be a good option.
      Thank you very much for your time

      Hi everyone.  I'm pretty new here.  I have a Sony A7III and shoot mostly outdoors photography.
      I'm considering buying a 200-600mm lens but have also heard rumors that Sony is going to be introducing the Sony A7IV soon.
      I have a 400mm lens that works for most purposes so the longer length isn't that critical and I'm wondering if I should save my money and wait till the A7IV comes out.
      Has anyone heard when Sony expects to release that camera.  If it's going to be fairly soon, I will probably hold off buying the lens, if not, well...
      Any thoughts you folks might have would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks and it's nice to be here.

      This is my first post. Just bought my first digi camera less than week ago (Sony a6000 with SELP1650 for 190€).
      I did try to search but I did not find what I was looking for. If there is already topic about this feel free to link it here and I will delete this thread.
      So I study communications and me and my friend have a plan of shooting a "0budget" interview/documentary about drugusers life on street.
      Here in Finland is so dark during these winter months that I need lense that has good F-value. The current lense has f3.5 when not zoomed.
      What is the cheapest zoom lense that you guys would recommend for my purposes? And how about some cheap wide angle prime lenses for this type of videography?
      Thank you,
