The Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon Manual Focus Lens for Nikon F Mount is a standard focal length premium lens especially optimized for full-format DSLR camera sensors. A wide aperture with Zeiss optical glass and T* lens coating produces the 55mm f/1.4 to transmit an impressive degree of detail and color rendition even in low light situations.
It is enclosed in a metal housing as evidence of a build quality that matches the lens's imaging proficiency. Additionally, an all-metal focusing mechanism with an extended rotation angle allows precise manual focusing from very close distance of 20 inches to infinity. The rubberized focusing ring improves feedback and helps to enable exact focus placement.
The Otus 1.4/55 is equipped with a floating elements design with 12 lens elements in 10 groups, including a double-sided aspheric lens and six lenses made of special glass with anomalous partial dispersion. These sophisticated features create image results without color fringing or distortion. Cameras with a lower number of pixels will also benefit from the lens’s unique features.
