(SR5) UPDATED: First image of the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4

Share

UPDATE: The lens can be preorderd at BHphoto with Nikon mount (Click here) or Canon mount (Click here) version.

The Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus is said to be the best Full Frame lens on market. And here is the first image of the next Otus lens…the Zeiss 85mm f/1.4! This lens will be available for Canon/Nikon but you can obviously use it with adapter on your A7 camera too.

UDPATE: A source just told us the image quality of the new 85mm lens surpasses even the 55mm Otus. The size and build are nearly identical to the 55.
