I love Zeiss glass. They are definitely 'Forever' lenses. However, I recommend buying the Samyang 24/2.8 or the Sony 28/2 to see if this focal length is one that you use often, before spending the money on a lens like this. No need to buy a lens this nice off the bat, since a lower lens will hold most of it's resale value if you choose to upgrade.

This is not tamron, this is zeiss batis
He's just being rude that the designer works for Tamron. He's not taking into account this happens across multiple industries and consumer goods. He probably likes saying iPhones are terrible because they are made in China too.

Alternatively, you can get it from Adorama on eBay at the same price. Some folks might get 13% cash back this way, or 1% cash back for the rest of us. 1% extra cash back thru Samsung Pay, or maybe 2% thru other site.
Fuk...sold out on ebay

Here is the link to the patent of this lens. https://ipforce.jp/patent-jp-A-2015-121649
The inventor is 坂井 隆彦 who is a totally Tamron employee. Basically, all Batis lenses are designed by Tamron, made in Japan, and labeled as Zeiss. Also, fun fact, Batis 85mm is basically exactly the same as FE 85 + OIS + Weather sealing.
Simplification that ignores that the lens are different... no matter the lens holder.

And to the 85mm... weight, diameter, length, elements, groups all are diff. This is why don't promote rumors without facts. Zeiss did not re-label Tamron production model 85mm. They are totally diff lenses.

Hey, check the structures of the two lenses. Only the one group was changed and that's not a big deal.

If it's just one lens I will shut my mouth. But this happens to all Batis lenses and Zeiss is just outsourcing their works and rips off people by labeling the lens with the little blue logo. If you like Zeiss, go buy Loxia, they are pure Zeiss.

It's just the patent itself, does not mean they are exactly the same in every aspect. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4182193

Overkill for a6000?
Buy good glass. My 12 year old D90 still keeps up with a lot of newer cameras because of the lenses I buy.

Of course, they are not the same inch by inch. But they so similar that I cannot think of any way to justify the price difference. Go read the other people's posts in that thread, please.

Learn up on optical physics and then you will realize a single part (much less the coatings and manufacturing process) can have a huge difference in final product even if design is similar.

You would learn the same thing just by reading up on lens history. There have been many clones throughout time with very different performance.
