Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar Aperture Series: Waterfall Amid Aspen (Nikon Z7)

See my Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Canon mirrorless wishlist and Sony mirrorless wishlist.

This series evaluates performance of the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar on a distance scene from f/1.4 through f/11 on the 45-megapixel Nikon Z7. The light was very blue and flat, so good , 'penetrating power' is needed to deliver good contrast and micro contrast, as well as world-class control of LOCA.

Sharpness doesn’t get any better than this—f/1.4 is really amazing in this series. Alas for want of a 90 megapixel sensor. View the full resolution f/1.4 image on an iMac 5K for an eye-popping experience. This performance is as good as I have ever seen at f/1.4.

Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar Aperture Series: Waterfall Amid Aspen (Nikon Z7)

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.4 through f/9.

I always knew that the 85/1.4 APO-Planar was delivering the goods, but the rear LCD of the Nikon D850 never let it shine so clearly as does the EVF of the Nikon Z7—awesome! I could watch the tiny sticks on the rock pile in front of the waterfall pop into amazingly crisp focus—wide open at f/1.4.
