ZEISS Otus 1.4/55 – Review by Chris Lin
The Almighty Otus – by Chris Lin / SLR Lounge
When the Otus first hit the market 2 years ago, many people were shocked at the sticker price of $4,000 for a focal length and aperture that can be easily purchased for a quarter of the price. But the point for ZEISS wasn’t to make a lens for the common photographer, but instead to make a high-quality lens second to none. I’ve been using the ZEISS Otus 1.4/55 for a few months now, taking this massive lens with me everywhere I went, and I can say it has performed remarkably well. If I could give the Otus 6/5 stars for Performance and Quality, I would. ZEISS has created a masterpiece that can reliably deliver exceptional images with unparalleled corner to corner sharpness and virtually no chromatic aberration.
