Zeiss OTUS 55mm Lens (2) (Custom)

The Zeiss OTUS 55mm f/1.4 is designed to be the best lens optically and has a new design compared to Zeiss' other lenses released, although is still a manual focus lens. The Nikon version has an aperture ring for use with older cameras, however when used on Nikon DSLRs has an electronically controlled aperture. Similarly, the Canon version has an electronically controlled aperture, but no aperture ring.
