Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar (about $4490) for Nikon or Canon. Thank you for using this site’s links to order.
According to Zeiss USA, the first shipments of the new Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar should arrive at dealers starting today or tomorrow.
The 55mm and 85mm Otii are not for everyone; they are manual focus with a silky-smooth long focus throw similar to cine lenses—no better feel is available.
They are also large and heavy. But if you wish for the very best results ever available on a DSLR (or rangefinder), the Otii are the lenses to have.
What’s next for the Zeiss Otus line? Here I have only a speculation to offer: a 28mm f/1.4. But I could see 25mm or 35mm being targeted next. A 28mm Otus is my first choice, but I’d be nearly as happy with a 21mm or 25mm. I would not be grumpy about a 35mm focal, but breaking into real wide angle territory would please many, I am sure.
