Zeiss Otus 1.4/55

Zeiss has officially announced the upcoming launch of its new 55mm f/1.4 lens, the Zeiss Otus 1.4/55. Otus is the Latin name for a type of owl known for its excellent vision in darkness, so the product name hints at the remarkable low-light capabilities of the new lens. Indeed, Zeiss claims that the Otus 1.4/55 "creates the highest-possible image quality, even with an open aperture." Other unique features of the Otus 1.4/55 are its high image contrast all the way to the edges (even for low f-numbers) and the consistent high-resolution performance across the entire image field. The optical formula incorporates a floating elements design with 12 elements in 10 groups, including a double-sided aspheric lens element and six elements made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion. The Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 will be available for Nikon (ZF.2) and Canon (ZE) mounts, starting at the end of October in all global markets. The recommended retail price will be €2,940 or US$3,999.
