The Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 is a superlative lens in every respect – just like every other focal length in the unique Zeiss Otus family. A lens designed and constructed with the comprehensive expertise and vast experience of Zeiss.

Features in portraits and finest details in textures are not the only things reproduced in perfect quality by the Otus 85mm f/1.4. Its extremely large initial aperture is simply ideal for isolating subjects from their backgrounds. At the same time, the Otus 85mm f/1.4 is far more than a portrait lens. Take advantage of its high speed for available light photography, its moderate angle of view for landscapes or its close focusing distance for reproductions.

The optical correction of the Otus 85mm f/1.4 completely eliminates almost all possible forms of aberration – and makes every picture you take as exciting as the first, even after thousands of exposures.

The famous symmetric lens design invented by Dr. Paul Rudolph at Zeiss in 1896. The Planar lens is the most successful camera lens design – and, by the way, the most plagiarized – ever created. It provides the lens designer with numerous means to correct aberrations extraordinarily well. And its performance is very constant over a wide range of imaging ratios, enabling such a versatile lens variety as the Makro-Planar lens.

Apochromat
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 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 Color 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 color 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 characterized by breathtaking rendition of even the finest details.

Aspherical Design
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.
