Zeiss Heralds the Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZF.2 Lens for Canon EF and Nikon DSLRs -- Now Available for Pre-Order at B&H Photo

The Otus Lenses Are Especially Designed for Modern DSLR Cameras With High-Resolution Sensors

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 08, 2014) - The Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T* ZF.2 lens resembles its namesake and seeks to deliver notable performance in any situation. Based on the Planar design, this apochromat incorporates one aspherical element and six elements made from anomalous partial dispersion glass in order to effectively suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the focus and aperture ranges. Additionally, a floating element design is also employed and a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual lens elements for consistent sharpness and image clarity. As a high-precision tool, the Otus 85mm f/1.4 also features a refined physical construction to endure use in trying conditions.
