ZEISS Otus 1.4/55

Our best standard lens

The exceptional family of ZEISS Otus lenses delivers the performance and quality of a medium-format camera to your Canon2or Nikon1 DSLR. Representing the pinnacle of our world-beating optical design expertise, every detail adds to the quality, with no room for compromise. Built for professionals who demand unequivocal performance, there are no chromatic or spherical aberrations, no distortion-just perfection from edge to edge.

When is a standard lens anything but standard? When it comes with the pedigree of the ZEISS Otus range. This lens’s resolution, versatility and performance will delight you. The ZEISS Otus 1.4/55 gives you the look of medium format photography whether you shoot portraits, landscapes, in the studio, the street or at night. Filmmakers will appreciate the resolving power to match high-res sensors and ultra-smooth focussing. A fast f/1.4 maximum aperture gives beautiful bokeh or stop down for greater depth of field with astounding detail. Outstanding build quality makes this lens a pleasure to use. If you only want one lens in your kitbag, this is the one.

Otus 1.4/55

Features

The medium format look
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.
Aspherical design
The asperical lens design ensures consistent imaging performance throughout he entirefocusing range as well as shapness to the periphery of the image. The asphere''s morecomplex surface profile can reduce or eliminatespherical aberration and also reduce other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens.
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.
The ultimate in 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.
No colour fringing
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.
