The new Zeiss Batis lenses are the first the German manufacturer designed specially for Sony’s awesome full-frame compact cameras. Their defining feature is an OLED display that replaces the old-school depth-of-field scale.

The lenses come in 25mm f/2.0 (wide angle) and 85mm f/1.8 (portrait) for $1300 and $1200. Start saving.
