The Zeiss Otus line of lenses has quickly set itself apart as the absolute best optical quality available to the modern photographer. Today, Zeiss announced the latest addition to that line, the 28mm F/1.4 Otus.


Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the new Otus features that familiar Otus design style and superior build quality. There is no denying that this thing is built like a tank and weighs a ton, but if you are looking for the best ~28mm FoV out there, this will likely be hard to beat.

Zeiss 28mm F/1.4 Otus

  • 28mm Focal Length
  • F/1.4 Max Aperture
  • 16 Elements in 13 Groups
  • Canon & Nikon Mounts Only
  • Available 2nd Quarter 2016


So far we have not seen any pricing, but given the cost of the other Otus models out there, it is pretty clear that this will likely be a $4,000 lens. Personally, I am fine with ‘good enough’ lenses, so I will never feel the need to own or use a lens this pricy. That said, it is hard not to see what these Otus lenses are capable of and be a little envious of those who can afford them.

Currently, there is no way to pre-order this lens, so stay tuned and we will update you once those pre-order links are available.
