Zeiss Otus Apo F/1.4 85mm ZE Lens for Canon

When seeking THE BEST, there is only one brand. Zeiss. The engineers at Zeiss were given the task to make the best lens without consideration of cost. The result is the Zeiss Otus range of lenses.

Over the years I have come to really enjoy and value the video reviews made by one, Dustin Abbott. I should warn you that if you watch the following video that you will have chills over your body and probably end up reaching for your credit card. You have been warned. Here is Dustin with his review of the Zeiss Otus Apo F/1.4 85mm ZE Lens for Canon.

Lets take a look at what Zeiss has to say about there Zeiss Otus Apo F/1.4 85mm ZE Lens for Canon.

The Otus® 1.4/85 is a superlative lens in every respect – just like every other focal length in the unique ZEISS Otus family. A lens designed and constructed with the comprehensive expertise and vast experience of ZEISS.

Features in portraits and finest details in textures are not the only things reproduced in perfect quality by the Otus 1.4/85. Its extremely large initial aperture is simply ideal for isolating subjects from their backgrounds. At the same time, the Otus 1.4/85 is far more than a portrait lens. Take advantage of its high speed for available light photography, its moderate angle of view for landscapes or its close focusing distance for reproductions.

The optical correction of the Otus 1.4/85 completely eliminates almost all possible forms of aberration – and makes every picture you take as exciting as the first, even after thousands of exposures.

Because this lens is an apochromat, chromatic aberrations (axial chromatic aberations) are corrected with elements of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion. The chromatic aberrations are therefore significantly below the defined limits. Bright-dark transitions in the image, and especially highlights, are reproduced almost completely free of color artifacts.

Aberrations caused by extreme differences between shadows and highlights are particularly obvious in images captured at night. Thanks to the outstanding correction of lateral chromatic aberration, the floodlit facade is reproduced with absolute perfection.

Sources of light located in front of or behind the plane of focus present particular challenges to every lens. In the case of the ZEISS Otus, longitudinal chromatic aberration is so low that practically no colour fringing occurs.

Thanks to its exceptional sharpness, the ZEISS Otus exploits the full potentials of contemporary high-resolution sensors and rewards photographers with images characterised by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details.

The aspherical lens design ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focusing range as well as sharpness to the periphery of the image. The asphere's more complex surface profile can reduce or eliminate spherical aberration and also reduce other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens.

The Zeiss Otus Apo F/1.4 85mm ZE Lens for Canon comes with a full Zeiss Australian warranty.
