Some size comparison shots:
50_1.4 ZE, Otus, 40_2.0 VL
24-70 L, Otus, 135 L
Compared to the small Zeiss 50 1.4 ZE Planar sibling at the Planar's "achilles heel" (= minimum FD up to 2m), the bigger Otus takes clearly the lead....
Just watch the crops....
(LV focused on middle of barcode, tripod, Cam: Canon 1 Ds III)
50_1.4 ZE@1.4 crop (0.6m FD)
55_1.4 ZE@1.4 crop (0.6m FD) - (LV focused on middle of barcode)
Well, for the sake of reputation for the small Planar - it gets much better beyond 2m FD and/or with bigger apperture numbers around f/5.6.
