General info

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.Has a metal mount
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
3.weight

225g

335g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.Lens hood is reversible
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.
5.has or is a prime lens
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.

Optics

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).
At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.
4.Has rounded aperture blades
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.
A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

Focus

1.Can focus to infinity

Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.
2.Has focus motor
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
3.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.
5.Has full-time manual focus
Sony E 24mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2
With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.
