| p.3 #5 · Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus: The absolute best SLR lens |
It is apparently much easier to design a "perfect" 135 mm f/2 lens than a ~50 mm f/1.4 lens. The Otus needs to be elevated to another class because of that, not necessarily because it would perform better than the 135 APO-Sonnar.
Oh, sure. That's why I added "discounting the spec difference". Most 135s are great, but this one is even better than most. On the other hand, a 5*/1.4 lens that good wide open is pretty remarkable, maybe even $4000 remarkable. Might be interesting how it compares with the recently released ZA 50/1.4 (even though this interest is purely academic for me, as I need neither).
