This fast prime is built with Zeiss’s customary attention to detail and quality, optimised to get the very best results from Nikon’s full-frame DSLRs. With a wide maximum aperture that’s great for portraits and in low light, the Zeiss 55mm f1.4 T* Otus Lens uses a sophisticated optical construction to deliver images that are pin-sharp from edge to edge, and its standard focal length means it’s a great choice for a whole host of different shooting situations.
Produce portraits that are spectacularly detailed and full or contrast, or night shots with controlled highlights and detail-filled shadows. Whatever you want to achieve photographically, the Zeiss 55mm f1.4 T* Otus Lens is a great tool for doing it, thanks to precise and sophisticated Zeiss engineering that makes it one of the absolute best lenses in its class.
Accept no substitute
Spectacularly detailed portraits full of contrast. High fidelity images and exceptional performance into the corners even at full aperture. The Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 makes absolutely no compromises and brings together over a century of Zeiss optical and technical excellence. This standard lens is the exception to the rule: perfect optical correction eliminates nearly all possible flaws, from color fringes and distortion to chromatic aberrations. With the highest contrast performance over the entire image field, even at an aperture of f/1.4, this lens offers the spectacular medium format look when working with a modern SLR camera. Phenomenal detail and exceptional performance, regardless of whether it’s using available light or in the studio, the Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 is the absolute best lens in the world today.
Design: Otus f/1.4 55mm
In contrast to its predecessors with similar focal lengths and speed, this is first time that the Distagon type has been selected for the optical construction of a standard lens. Only this optical design with its considerably longer construction makes it possible to already realise consistently excellent correction from corner to corner of the frame and extremely low image field curvature at a very large initial aperture.
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.
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.
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 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.
