| p.1 #20 · Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus: The absolute best SLR lens |
Looks like a terrific lens. I have relied for some time on the Zeiss 50mm MP, which sets an IQ standard that few lenses can match. At f/1.4 this one is really a different animal, but it looks like it might be more like 2 different animals, maybe supplanting the 50 MP for what it does best (IQ at f/5.6), but also for shooting large apertures for soft backgrounds.
You have to wonder if this is the first of a series at various focal lengths, all with this kind of optical quality. It would be a wrenching mental (and fiscal) adjustment...Show more →
Well, it's already confirmed that this is the first lens in the Otus family (no compromise line-up). An 85 and a WA are hinted by Zeiss rep to be announced next year.
