Otus medical since only doctors can afford it...
To me it looks like fashion/cinema lens. They must make a set, so videographers can invest in a "box" of them, 120mm, 24mm, 85,55.. And otus with modern (as I like to call regular ze zf.2) are not to be mixed for videos, they have different look. One thing that drives me away from Otus (besides the price) is that they can not focus close, also I could buy 2/25 and 135 APO for the same price. I could probably live with only one otus, 35mm. On a crop body it would be 55 and on a full little bit wider. And 3 zeisses are too much to carry. They say otus is built like cinema lens and it is same design for cinema lenses and they dont have problems with dust and rain etc.. But also there are lot of complaints with Otus/Nikon set ups, err 7 if I remember, something with contacts. And it looks to me that it can catch a lot of dust (looking at the cross section of otus lens) and distance scale opening.
If it is so much about technical achievement, why didn't they make some special paint that is hard to scratch, dust protection, fancy square hood. Maybe they could produce ultra light robust metal, hard, but very light. Otus also has apo rings, double blur, but still probably the best 55/85mm today.
I have sold my 1.4/35 and 2/100MP ZE, will probably go to Nikon mounts in the future. Nikon has recently impressed me with colors, resolution, tones etc.. But Canon has impressive build quality, my 60D shows no signs of getting older, which I primarily bought because of tilt screen.On the other sides Nikon has so many issues.. nevertheless I will probably buy Zf.2 mount in the future. Although the best way to go is ZE for canon and ZF.2 for Nikon. I am thinking about 135 APO and 2/25.
