The one thing that struck me as surprising about the naming is that Zeiss has dropped the lens design name. I believe the Otus 1.4/55mm is a Distagon design, right? But, officially it's just "Otus 1.4/55". And, you are correct: the ZE and ZF.2 mount-type naming convention is still retained.
From now on I will use the term "Otus 1.4/55 ZE" instead of only listing "1.4/55 ZE" to avoid confusion.
