Admiringlight compares the X-T1 + Fuji XF 56mmF1.2 and the A7II + Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 (with the Contax G 90mm thrown in for fun)!

Admiringlight says, that these are all “stellar” optics and there is no clear winner (“we’re sort of splitting hairs at this level“). Here are some of hits findings:

Both, the Fuji 56 and the Zeiss Batis 85 are “exceptional” lenses. Thanks to the X-Trans sensor, the samples taken with the 56mm show less moire. Wide open the Batis is sharper in the corners. And what about the bokeh:

Well, I think the Fuji’s bokeh looks nicer here. It’s subtle, but it’s smoother and the lower contrast is very pleasing, and the Fuji colors shine.”
