Read More
  • Short Telephoto Lens
  • Apochromatic
  • Minimal Colour Fringing
  • Filter Thread: M86 x 1.00
  • Large initial aperture is simply ideal for isolating subjects from their backgrounds
  • 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
  • Design:
  • Apo Planar with 11 lens elements in 9 groups
  • Lens with aspheric surface
  • Lens made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion
  • "Floating Elements" design
  • Apochromat:
  • 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
  • Image contrast:
  • 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
  • Minimal colour fringing:
  • Sources of light located in front of or behind the plane of focus present particular challenges to every lens
  • Longitudinal chromatic aberration is so low that practically no colour fringing occurs
  • Sharpness:
  • Thanks to its exceptional sharpness, the ZEISS Otus exploits the full potentials of contemporary high-resolution sensors and rewards photographers with images characterized by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details
  • Aspherical design:
  • 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
