Shootout: Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar vs Nikon 85mm f/1.4G: Tools Closeup

See my Zeiss DSLR lens wish list and get Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo.

This series is a close-range evaluation comparing the about $4190 Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar to the about $1596 Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G. At this close range, many a lens shows reduced performance.

Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar Aperture Series vs Nikon 85/1.4G: Tools Closeup (Nikon D850)

Includes images from f/1.4 through f/16 at up to full camera resolution, with commentary and large crops.

It’s not a fair fight of course; for 2.6X the price one of course expects superiority. And the Otus is not autofocus so it might not be an option for some.
