Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4

It’s ut­terly gor­geous, but this Nikon-fit Zeiss lens comes with a silly price tag

NPhoto - - Xmas Gift Guide -

Zeiss’s new 85mm f/1.4 is a clas­sic ‘por­trait’ lens giv­ing gor­geous re­sults, though lenses of this type are also ideal for gen­eral pho­tog­ra­phy, com­bin­ing a tele­photo an­gle of view with a wide max­i­mum aper­ture. The Otus 85mm f/1.4 uses spe­cial glass with ‘anoma­lous par­tial dis­per­sion’ to counter lon­gi­tu­di­nal chro­matic aber­ra­tion, or ‘bokeh blur’ – coloura­tion around the edges of out-of-fo­cus ob­jects (see page 96 for more about this). The Nikon ver­sion is dubbed the ZF.2 and is a pretty solid lens, weigh­ing in at 1140g. More­over, it de­liv­ers the best re­sults for any Nikon-fit 85mm lens cur­rently avail­able.
