Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon Aperture Series: Peering into the Fir Forest

Get Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon B&H Photo.

See my in-progress review of the Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon in Guide to Zeiss.

This scene caught my eye as one of those 'found moments' while trudging down a steep path, a hidden glade revealed with a glance to the side. Physically, the steepness was difficult to 'work'—in physical terms of setup and standing without slipping. It is much steeper than it looks.

The aperture series from f/1.4 through f/16 gives a sense of the rendering style of the Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon—unique among 28mm lenses.

Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon Aperture Series: Peering into the Fir Forest

With images up to 24 megapixels from f/1.4 through f/16, with large crops as well. It looks great in black and white too, but I have not presented it as such.

Toggle for black and white vs color.
