Getting one

You really, really, really want this lens more than any lens you ever lusted over.

Buy Zeiss ZF.2 Otus 55m f/1.4 Distagon for Nikon
Buy Zeiss ZE Otus 55mm f/1.4 Distagon for Canon

Availability will be very limited, so pre-ordering is essential*.

* The ultra high performance design requires that production tolerances be held to rigorous levels, and this is likely to restrict initial availability.

Not limited to DSLRs

While the 55/1.4 APO-Distagon is designed for Canon and Nikon DSLRs, it also can be used on the Leica M Typ 240 (as shown in my review), as well as current and future Sony APS-C and full-frame NEX cameras. And because it is a Distagon design, there are no ray angle issues: high resolving power is retained free of color shading issues.

For general cross-brand use, choose the ZF.2 Nikon mount version which can be used with a simple mechanical adapter (ZF.2 version has an aperture ring, the ZE Canon version does not).
